In some of the old fashioned movies we see that the rich and wealthy have beautiful couches in their bedrooms. In the movies, this was considered a fashion statement that only the popular people would do. In reality, it is a possibility but you need consider a few factors when it comes to having a lounge suite in a bedroom.
Lounge furniture would be present in many sections of the house if the family lived in a mansion. These mansions were so big that walking all the way to the family room was a bit of journey if you wanted to enjoy a relaxing moment. Television also wasn’t a feature that these houses had so a personal living room was used as place to have conversations.
Bedrooms now have been made smaller to a standard size. In these bedrooms, a double bed, side tables, dressers and wardrobes or built-in cupboards are usually all you can fit in a standard size bedroom. If you do have extra space, it could be used for a small couch or an arm chair.
Essentially, bedrooms are no longer as big and if you require a bigger room, you would have to build it. Then you could specify the size of the room based on all the furniture you want to place in it.
If you want to have a lounge suite in your bedroom, here are few factors you need to consider.
- You will always have your own personal living room to yourself – many times we just want to sit in our rooms and read a book in peace.
- It adds comfort to your lifestyle – a couch in your room is great for comfort. You could sit on the couch if you want to watch television. It is also a comfortable place to get dressed and put on your shoes.
- It adds style – the lounge suite adds style and glamour to your bedroom.
- It is convenient for families – some parents struggle with their children always coming into their bedroom in the middle of the night. The couch will give them a soft surface to sleep on instead of between them on the bed.
- This set up requires a lot of space – a lounge suite is not a small piece of furniture so it will take up considerable space in the bedroom.
- It may become a resting post for clothing and other items that are not in use – we tend to rest our clothes and other possessions on surfaces so that we remember to put them away the next day. The only problem is that many people forget to put these items away.
