Master Bedroom With Sitting Area

Creating a Luxurious Master Bedroom with Sitting Area is an elegant way to elevate the comfort and style of your home. A master bedroom with a sitting area is a luxurious addition that can add comfort and style to your home. It’s a perfect way to create a space that is not only functional but also relaxing. With a sitting area in your bedroom, you can create a separate space for reading, watching TV, or lounging. Here are some benefits of having a master bedroom with sitting area area:

– Adds extra space to your bedroom
– Creates a relaxing and comfortable space
– Provides a separate area for relaxation and entertainment
– Increases the value of your home

Boost the comfort quotient of your master bedroom with a sitting area. Excellent for filling up a large room, sitting areas in bedrooms are opulent lounging spaces in an intimate room. 

You can use the area for relaxation – a quick nap to prepare for a busy schedule ahead or to give your feet a rest after a tiring day. Make it into a reading nook or a spot to enjoy a warm cup of tea. Have an elaborate sitting space to lounge with the entire family or a single chair by the window to daydream. A bench at the foot of the bed – for tying your shoelaces or a temporary clothes dumping spot. The multi-functionality of a sitting area makes it a practical addition to the bedroom, and the look it lends to the bedroom has a luxurious upscale vibe.  

Have a seat and check out our list of master bedrooms with amazing sitting area ideas. We have got something for everyone and have covered large rooms as well as small ones. At the end of the article, there is an added bonus – we have included a few ideas for your kid’s bedroom too. 

Segregated Sitting Area

When you have a master bedroom big enough to accommodate two sitting spaces – you must have a designated sitting area. A wall projecting out halfway is enough to segregate the functional zones. The end-of-the-bed loveseat sofa is a casual seating option added to the room.

Two chaise lounge chairs allow the homeowners to comfortably rest their backs and straighten their legs while sipping on a drink of their choice. The bar is a clever extension of the sitting room. It allows for the storage of wine or other alcoholic beverages in the comforts of the bedroom. This is perfect for a relaxing late-night drink with the spouse or partner before heading to bed. 

Mix Prints And Patterns

Combining different prints and patterns can be daunting to some. Sticking to the same color palette helps ease this difficulty. The floral pattern over the white board and batten wall is much bigger in scale when compared to the strips on the armchair. This helps maintain a balance in the room while exploring fun designs.   

One Chair Is Enough

One comfortable chair is enough to create a nook to relax and unwind. You can sink into the soft curve of the chair. The delicate arches make the chair look stylish while providing you with lumbar support. A single chair works well if space is a constraint.   

Decorative Dining Chair

A single decorative dining chair from an antique store can be placed in an underutilized corner. This will bring some aesthetic value to the unproductive section while making use of the space. Matching the chair’s cushion to the bedroom decor will bind the components together.   

The Wingback Chair

The wingback chair – with its classic silhouette and theatrical wings – adds character to the space. The moody color works for the overall color scheme. The suede material bestows luxury and comfort on the chair. 

Contrasting Chair

Including a rustic bench in a neat contemporary setting creates a visual contrast. Arranging a bunch of black and white family portraits above the bench draws further attention to the bench. The tall plant next to the bench develops this end of the wall as an independent sitting area.   

Something In Pink

A pair of pastel pink plush chairs for a simple, quiet sitting area. The velvety texture is replicated from the bed with the exception of the color. A standout color is used for the chairs to make them pop.   

Scale And Contrast

Experiment with large or petite-sized furniture keeping in mind the scale of your room. Mix and match casual and comfy pieces with chic and elegant pieces for some drama. A giant tufted sofa with a curve like that is very inviting. The white-painted chunk of tree trunk acts as the perfect side table for the massive sofa. The slender chaise lounge sits in contrast to the giant sofa.   

Seating With A View

Floor-to-ceiling windows draw ample daylight to this gloomy gray room. The hint of deep red supplies the much-needed color to the stormy aesthetic. Philip Lloyd Powell chairs seated adjacent to the windows take advantage of the view offered by the huge windows.

Anchored Swing Chair

Want a swing chair but do not want to drill a hole in the ceiling. Take a cue from this refined bedroom. Here we have a rattan swing chair that comes with a brass stand. You can change the location of the swing chair as and when you need. It’s up to you if you want to sway by the window or in a quiet corner of your room.  

Window Alcove

An in-built bench by the window is the best seat in the room. Sit at peace by the window and enjoy the view with a warm cup of coffee. The reading light, throw blanket, and cushions make it a cozy reading spot. The bench doubles up as a storage space to hide all the extra clutter.  

Opulence In Leather

Nothing can beat the opulence of a leather sofa. The half and half faux leather pillow covers support the sofa. Elegant art pieces,a matte painted barn door, and few metal ornamentation complete the bedroom.  

The Classic Touch

Classic pieces offer style and quality. Herman Miller’s Eames chair and ottoman are easily recognizable. They have lasted for over fifty years and will continue carrying on. Such an iconic furniture duo will enrich any given room.  

Hanging Chair

Hanging chairs are ideal for lounging – whether out on the patio or in the comforts of your bedroom. This cane chair looks effortless. The fluffy cushion seat makes for a comfortable seating experience and is excellent for lounging all day. The gentle sway of the swing will settle the nerves and calm your mind.   

Bohemian Sitting

Mixing styles can add visual interest. The bohemian sitting area in the center of a contemporary bedroom is sure to draw attention. The boho swivel chairs showcase fine craftsmanship. The drum coffee table is an interesting choice that pairs well with the loops of the chairs. 

Focus On The Ottoman

Luxury seekers will find a lot to admire in this bedroom. Starting with the enormous tufted pink ottoman – the color is chic, and the fabric is rich. It functions as a coffee table and a footrest. The gray wingback armchairs and the white sofa decked with fluffy cushions round out the look.   

Choose Clean Designs

A sharp-looking gray armchair sits in the corner of this room – that pulls off in style – a white board and batten wall with a pink abstract wallpapered wall. The pretty white canopy, ruffle curtains, and polka dot blanket adds feminine touches to the room. Throw a few pillows with cheery text to complete the look.    

Impressive End Of Bed Seating

Reimagine the end of the bed bench. This stylish, curvy settee by Natasha Baradaran sits well at the foot of the bed. The sculptural stool by Natan Moss is a suitable match for the sofa. The chandelier by Lindsey Adelman is another admired piece in this bedroom.

The intricately designed flower-style lounge cane chair looks gorgeous in this boho-chic bedroom. The frills on the pillow add to the femininity of the pretty chair. The muted color scheme with hints of earthy brown shades creates a peaceful harmony in the room.

If your design taste leans toward maximalism, this room should be a perfect inspiration. Mixing bold colors – like the purple wall – with contrasting patterns can help you achieve this look. Do not shy away from layering different fabrics and textures. Multiple seating options in bright colors and designs can be paired together.   

Fall Themed Setting

If you love to decorate your house with fall elements throughout the year, take a note from this bedroom. The vibrant colors of fall stand out against the beige and white tones. The wicker egg chair naturally suits this room and blends well with all the natural elements. The embroidered pillows on the chair complement the delicate floral needlework on the rug. 

Independent Sitting Room

For master bedrooms like these, a full-sized sitting room (that resembles a living space) within the bedroom is more than welcome. Even with the abundance of furniture, the room does not look or feel crowded – thanks to the all-white decor, it makes the room look – rather spacious, calm, and welcoming. 

Bold Color Option

Rugs and pillows can act as an accent color. But a settee in a bright red shade can transform the vibe of your room instantly. Including lamps and bedding in the same shade can tie the pieces together. 

Play Matchy Matchy

Twining decor components creates harmony in the room. Choosing a chair that matches the color of your wall is a common practice. Alternatively, you can match the pattern of the chair’s upholstery fabric with the wallpaper’s design. The striped pattern on the walls and the chair unite the segments of the room.  

Highlight The Wall

The beige armchair in front of a brick wall with a window looks good. To highlight the wall hang string lights and decorate them with plants. With a pouf ottoman to rest your feet, a cozy blanket to keep you warm, and a fluffy pillow to comfort your back – this sitting area can’t get any better.   

Sit Around The Fireplace

We observe tiny pockets of seating areas spread across this room. But having the table and chairs set next to the fireplace is our favorite. On cold winter mornings, kick start your day – by enjoying your breakfast served in your bedroom next to the warm fireplace. 

Modern Rocking Chair

Nothing calls out to you as a rocking chair does. The soft oscillation is comforting. Here we see a modern version of a rocking chair made with contemporary materials. The look is stylish yet simple. The heavily decorative ceiling and fireplace needed such simple elements to tone down the look of the room. 

Your kids, too, deserve a sitting area. And here are our top five picks.  

Reading Nook For Kids

Here we have a pink bedroom with an adorable kiddie sized pink couch. The rose gold accessories pair well with the pink couch. The books and wall sconces in the background make this the ideal reading nook. The polka dot, star-shaped, and pom pom pillows complement the couch. The faux fur throw blanket in a soft blue shade, and the faux fur rug are pretty additions to this room.    

Kid Friendly Egg Chair

Seated next to a white bunk bed – the wicker egg chair has a whimsical vibe in this children’s room. The distressed finish of the wardrobe, desk, and stools is juxtaposed with – the clean, modern decor. The use of natural elements in terms of material (like wood and wicker) and potted plants bring warmth to this room.     

Macrame For Kids

Macrame has hippie vibes and is often reserved for an adult room. But this macrame swing chair swings beautifully in a little girl’s room. The addition of plush soft toys and pillows will help you achieve this look. The white bed frame, fancy ceiling fan with lights, and french country-style dresser agree with the swing chair.      

Fun Bean Bags for a Master Bedroom With Sitting Area

Nook beds maximize the area of a room and lend more space for other furniture. Here we have an in-built bed with a storage box that slides below the bed. The alcove houses a decent display area for toys and books. There is a reading light making the bed the ideal reading nook. 

The architecture makes it obvious that the owners don’t need extra furniture cluttering the room. In such cases, a portable bean bag in a fun shade of color is a practical solution.   

What is the purpose of a sitting room in master bedroom?

For those who have enough space in their master bedroom, adding a sitting room can be the perfect way to create a peaceful and functional space. But what is the purpose of a sitting room in a master bedroom?

Comfort and Relaxation

One of the primary purposes of a sitting room in a master bedroom is to provide a comfortable and relaxing space for the homeowner. This is especially important for those people with busy and stressful lives. A sitting room can be a great space to unwind after a long day at work, read a book, or watch TV. Having coffee or tea before starting the day can also be a great place.

Privacy

Another benefit of having a sitting room in a master bedroom is its added privacy. This is especially important for parents or guests staying in their home. With a sitting room, homeowners can have a private space to retreat when they need to be alone or want a private conversation.

Increased Home Value

A sitting room in a master bedroom can also add value to your home. It can make your bedroom feel more luxurious and spacious, making it attractive to potential buyers. A sitting room can also be a great selling point for those looking to sell their home in the future.

Design and Style

Finally, a sitting room in a master bedroom can be a great way to show off your design and style. This is especially important for those who want to create a beautiful and luxurious home that reflects their contemporary and modern style. With the right furniture and decor, a sitting room can become a beautiful and functional space that adds value to your home.

The rowing boat paddles on the wall, the sailing boat and whale showpieces, and the adorable octopus stuffed toy make the nautical theme pretty evident. The rocking chair is perched next to the window – draped with blue curtains.  

How do you build a Master Bedroom With Sitting Area?

Choose the Right Location

The first step in building a sitting area is to choose the correct location. Consider the size and layout of your bedroom and the amount of natural light that enters the room. Ideally, you want to choose a quiet and peaceful location, away from any distractions.

Select the Right Furniture

Once you have chosen the location, it’s time to select the right furniture. A comfortable armchair or chaise lounge is an excellent choice for a sitting area. Consider including a small side table or ottoman for added comfort and convenience.

Add Decorative Touches

Consider adding some decorative touches to make your sitting area feel more inviting. A plush rug, decorative pillows, and a cozy throw blanket can all help to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Also, include some artwork or a vase of fresh flowers to add a pop of color and personality to the space.

Consider Lighting

Lighting is one of the most important factors when building a sitting area. Natural light is ideal, but if that is not possible, consider adding a table lamp or floor lamp to provide adequate lighting. Also, install dimmer switches to create a more relaxing ambiance.

Final Thoughts

Building a sitting area in your master bedroom is a great way to create a peaceful retreat where you can relax and unwind. By choosing the right location, furniture, and decor, you can create a functional and beautiful space. So why not start planning your master bedroom sitting area today?
