Creating a Master Bedroom Sitting Area

Do you desire a space to relax and rejuvenate within the refuge of the master retreat; a place that is free of life’s distractions and chaos?  Some master suites are designed with a designated sitting area, but if not, creating your own is within reach.

The components of a master bedroom sitting area are comfortable seating, functional accent pieces and plenty of luxuries such as plush throws and pillows.  A footrest, side table and lighting are additional elements that can add the ultimate comforts to the space.

Start by designating the space you wish to use for your sitting area.  Carve out a space by windows, in a small alcove beside the bed, or at the foot of the bed.  Separate the space with an area rug and arrange an intimate furniture grouping around the rug.

Complement the space with cozy throws and plush pillows.  Add a lamp if task lighting is needed for reading.  Place a footstool or ottoman by the seating for added comfort.

In a small master bedroom, a settee at the foot of the bed or a comfy chair in a corner is sometimes all that is needed for a cozy retreat.

Consider how the master bedroom is currently arranged.  Is there a space that is not being used efficiently that can be turned into a master bedroom sitting area?  Sometimes all it takes to create the space you need is to rearrange furniture and do away with pieces that are unnecessary.
