A sitting area in the house is always a nice idea. A separate place in the living room, bedroom, kitchen or on the landing, where you can do your thing separately. Knitting, reading a book, browsing through a magazine, listening to music, you name it. Create a comfortable seat, for example with an armchair, lounge chair or luxury ottoman. And make it cozy with all kinds of accessories. Think of a table, a rug, pillows, a lamp, plants, you name it. No idea where to start? No problem, because we have listed the best ideas and inspiration examples for a sitting area in the house for you!
You should of course be able to sit in a sitting area, but it would also be super chill if you could take a nap. That is possible in an armchair, but of course you cannot lie in it. That is why a daybed can be a very nice idea. You have daybeds in different sizes. You have single day beds, but also day beds where you can lie comfortably together. Finish it off with nice decorative cushions, green plants and beautiful rugs.
Rather normal, are you crazy enough? Ok, an armchair can also be very nice and cozy. The seating area below is a good example of this. An armchair is of course always very comfortable, thanks to the high backrest and the armrests. With a pillow and a rug it can become even more comfortable and cozy. Complete your seating area with a side table and a lamp.
3. Wooden pallet bench
With wooden pallets you can make very cool things for your garden and interior. Do you not want to spend too much to furnish a sitting area? Then you can think about making a sturdy bench out of wooden pallets. Determine the height of the bench yourself, by stacking several pallets on top of each other. And finish it off with comfortable seat cushions and decorative cushions. Does the seating area below not look super cool and nice?
4. Reading corner
Are you a real bookworm? Then of course there should be no reading corner missing in your house. This does not have to be an extensive library. A small corner with a bookcase and a sitting area is enough. The reading corner below is a very good example. There are open cupboards on the wall, full of books. The gray armchair offers a comfortable seating area. And with nice decoration, the reading corner has become super fun, such as the table, candles, vases and artwork on the wall.
5. Mamasan chair
This seating area is furnished with a super nice Mamasan chair. These tough rattan chairs are mainly found in countries such as Bali or Ibiza. It is therefore the perfect chair if you like an exotic style or the bohemian Ibiza style. The chair not only looks nice, thanks to the seat cushion, and in this case also a sheepskin, it is also super comfortable!
6. Music corner
Are you a true music lover, and can you really enjoy and relax just by listening to a good album? Then there should be no music corner missing in your house. Your own corner, where you can listen to your favorite records. A cupboard for your record collection, a beautiful record player and a comfortable seating area, where you can sit down. Can you picture it already?
7. Hanging chair
We are a big fan of hanging chairs. A hanging chair gives your interior a playful character, it is something different than a normal armchair or a lounge chair. Do you want to add a playful touch to your seating area? Then use a hanging chair? Hang it on the ceiling or take a hanging chair with a stand. There are many different hanging chairs available, from sturdy rattan hanging chairs to transparent hanging chairs. Nice for the living room, but especially for the bedroom and children’s room.
8. Empty corner
In some homes you have those uncomfortable empty corners that you don’t know what to do with. Make it a sitting area! A seating area is super nice, but if you don’t really use it, that’s no problem. Because look how nice and cozy it looks!
