Small Bedroom Sitting Area Ideas
For those who have a large bedroom it may be no challenge to create a sitting area. However, for those with smaller bedroom layouts a little more creativity may be in order. Here are some ideas to help.
Small Solace Retreat
A sofa by your bedside is great. Some of us tend to doze of when lying down when reading and that’s just counter-productive, isn’t it? This gray sofa with a soft white fluffy covering on top is great for a variety of functions from reading books (and conveniently there’s a lampshade just above) to watching the television from across the room. You’ll need a wide TV at this distance, of course.
The perks of going solo is that you’ll have every piece of furniture all to yourself. Just like having a luxurious throne by your bedside. The comfy seat makes a cozy spot for binge-watching from your tablet or phone, or, better yet, catch up on your reading while you lounge. You’ll need an extra chair of course to maneuver around just in case you need an extra chair for reaching something up above.
The Intimate Loveseat
A loveseat with plump cushions is a great alternative to a footstool. The versatile loveseat adds a luxurious feel to a bedroom plus a more convenient seat for your nightly conversations with your partner.
Loveseats are great for other functions like a temporary seat while you change shoes, read books, or just as an accent chair for the bedroom. With such a simple piece of furniture, it can be a space saver.
Bedside Bean Bags
Bean bags are a youthful twist for your modern bedroom. For kids, teenagers, or adults alike, the hippie lounger is a playful alternative to the traditional sofa sets. They’re as comfortable as an upholstered sofa and comes with a variety of colors and shapes to match any contemporary or modern themed bedroom.
The Iconic Barcelona Chair
If you want the upholstered sofa but want to a lighter and easy on the eyes, Barcelona chair might be what you’re looking for. It is elegant and sophisticated but not overbearing compared to the traditional Chesterfield sofa and other heavy-set loungers. Plus, no heaving lifting when moving, and it’s easier to clean underneath the lounger.
Minimalist Bedroom Bench
It pays to play around with this mixture so as to give the observer something to admire(complex) and a moment to rest one’s eyes and thoughts (simple) to avoid being overwhelmed such as in the case of an overabundance of complex designs. A throw rug underneath your sofa lounge can further soften the look for your bedroom sitting area ideas.
A Plush Loveseat
A loveseat makes a comfortable bed-end seat, making it a good alternative to the standard footstool. You can throw in soft pillows to the luxury sofa to make it more inviting.
Suitable for small to medium-sized bedrooms, the length and size enable the loveseat to be easily moved and positioned easier into the different parts of the bedroom.
