How to Guide: Choosing the Perfect Bedroom Chair

1st December 2017

Whether you're looking for a gift for your house-proud interior-obsessed sister or want to jazz up your own cosy space, you've come to the right place. A bedroom chair can give you a lovely place to curl up with a book or offer extra special seating for when you have guests around. The possibilites are endless. However, don't be put off by the name! Bedroom chairs don't have to be confined to the bedroom. If it helps, we can change the name - accent chairs, occasional chairs, you name it. Basically, you're looking for a gorgeous one-off piece to make a corner of your home pop! Here's our ultimate guide to picking out the perfect bedroom chair.

 Choosing that perfect bedroom chair

First things first, you've got to consider who you are buying the chair for. What are their needs? What are their preferences? If you are purchasing for yourself, this won't be an issue to figure out. However, perhaps you're buying a gift for someone - after all, Christmas is just around the corner! If this is the case, think about their home. Where will they be placing this chair? What is their current interior design like? These points should play a part in helping you pick the perfect bedroom chair for your lucky recipient.

Factors to think about

Interior design

Colour scheme is important, especially if you have an eye for detail. Opting for a cream or beige shade is ideal if you want to play it safe. However, there's no point placing a neutral-coloured statement piece into an already vibrant room! There's plenty of amazing shades to pick from in our bedroom chair collection so you don't need to settle for anything other than perfect.

The Ashley bedroom chair is the ultimate example of how you can use additional seating to add a splash of colour to the home. (It's also got a massive discount so don't miss out!) Don't be afraid to mix and match colours, either. 2018 is going to be full of fun and exciting trends which don't shy away from mismatching textures and shades.

function & purpose

This is quite important. What will you be mainly using your chair for? If its sole purpose is to look pretty and add an extra decorative layer to your room, then style should be the most important aspect. You won't really have to worry about the practicality of the chair, so choose whichever you find most aesthetically pleasing. However, if the chair will be used to seat guests when you have parties or gatherings, consider a lighter chair that can be easily moved or one with wheels. Our Bergen chair is incredibly light and can fit into any tiny corner for ultimate space-saving whilst not in use.

If you've got pets or children, you'll know that disaster can strike at any minute. It's always best to be prepared for any moulting fur or juice spillages - choose a chair in a material that is easily wiped or won't show any marks. The dark grey fabric of the Sofia accent chair is a gorgeous option for those who need to hide marks or pet hair but don't want to compromise on style!
