Adding a bedroom sitting area to your home is an easy way to upgrade your living space and make your bedroom feel calmer and more peaceful.
You can add a sitting area to large and small bedrooms through the use of stools, chairs, or benches.
10 Ideas for Creating a Perfect Bedroom Sitting Area
Here are ten unique bedroom sitting area ideas to consider.
Curved seating is a space-efficient fit for a small room. Adding a bedroom sitting area into a corner of your room creates space for two or more people. Plus, a curved seating unit creates a cozy look void of harsh lines and angles.
Bold, Bright Colors
Bold, bright-colored bedroom sitting areas make a design feature out of your seating space. You can use the color wheel to find the right tones for your bedroom. Opt for a color opposite your bedroom’s color scheme to find a complimentary tone. Or you choose one next to your bedroom’s color scheme for an analogous color scheme.
Add bedroom seating underneath your window to make a room with a view. A bedroom window seat is space efficient and functional. You can add a built-in window seat or place a small bench underneath your window.
A bench at the end of your bed is another space-saving way to introduce a bedroom seating area. A bench adds an extension to your bed area rather than creating a whole different area within the room. Color coordinate your end-of-bed bench with your bedding to create a cohesive, sophisticated look.
A Seated Swing
A seated swing attaches to your bedroom ceiling rather than the floor, occupying less floor space and allowing for storage underneath. A swinging seat offers an element of playfulness and fun to your bedroom seating area. Swinging seats also provide a relaxing, rocking motion, making them a comfy reading nook.
Mid-Century Dining Chairs
Use mid-century chairs as a part of your bedroom seating area to save space and look chic. Mid-century dining chairs are quick to install and move around, so it’s easy to find their perfect placement. You can choose a set of matching dining chairs or mix styles for a mid-century design. This type of bedroom sitting area is ideal for reading, working, or sitting down to put on your shoes.
A storage trunk combines the benefits of a bedroom seating area with extra storage. A vintage-style trunk will look elegant and stylish. You can store extra blankets, clothing, or other bedroom clutter in the interior. Add cushions or a folded blanket on top of your storage trunk to make it a more comfortable bedroom sitting option.
A stool is a space-efficient and inexpensive way to add a place to sit in your bedroom. You can choose an unusual, trendy shape, color, or texture to accessorize a more classic bedroom look. Stools pair well with desks and dressing tables when you need somewhere to sit.
A miniature sofa is a comfy way to add seating to your bedroom. A smaller couch gives the same comfort level as its regular-sized counterpart but takes up less space. A small sofa can sit at the foot of your bed or under your window to offer an extra place to get cozy. Colorful cushions and blankets can make a bedroom sofa look even more inviting.
An armchair makes for a seating area that’s as comfortable as a sofa but takes up less space. You can add extra armchairs for more seats, depending on how big of a bedroom seating area you desire. Choose different colors and textures for a seating area that’s as appealing as it is useful.
