Creating a welcoming space for you and your family or guests can be tricky. There are so many factors to setting up the perfect living space. However, one that remains consistent is seating. No living room is complete without a few options for comfortable relaxation. While there is nothing wrong with a traditional set up of couches and chairs, sometimes it is worthwhile to think outside the box. If you’re looking to enhance your home with creative seating options, you have come to the right place!
One of the easiest ways to create a unique sitting area is to add window seating. If you already have a window seat in your home, all it takes for an amazing transformation are cushions and decorative pillows! In a cinch you can create a pretty and cozy area to relax with a book, or converse with family and friends. If you really step it up on the coziness level, a nap may even be in order! If you don’t have a built-in window seat, installing them doesn’t require that much work. Another option for window seating involves maximizing empty space. Do you have room above the landing on your stairs? Add a reading nook! Now you have a loft-style space that is both functional and visually appealing.
Rather than adding a few standalone pieces, why not implement built-in seating? Make your couch a permanent part of the room by building it into the room itself. Adding seating such as this creates an extremely comfortable and welcoming atmosphere for your living room. One appealing option for built-in seating is adding a couch that is low to the ground. This creates a communal environment where you can relax or entertain. An alternative for a room where a television is the focal point is large, partially divided seating. This way, you can cozy up with a loved one or pet, or have the seat all to yourself with ample space. These built-in style couches not only look amazing in your home, but provide optimal space and comfort for all your seating needs.
Have you ever experienced a hammock or porch swing? Bring that awesome experience indoors with hanging seating! This is perhaps one of the easiest seating choices to implement into your home, as all you need is the seat itself and a little hardware to install. You can pride yourself on the creativity of the seats while enjoying the soothing swinging motion that they offer. The best part is, there literally is no end to the options:
traditional hammock, porch swing style,
flat cushions, bean bag, papasan, and so many more!
Adding creative seating to your home is an excellent way to construct a unique space for your home without making any major changes. There are so many options for easy and fun projects: get started on one today!
