I'm in Gerry Rust's camp: my main bedroom, where I sleep, is large enough for a chair - and more! - but I rarely sit in it!

My bedroom would have no room for anything more than existing furniture (bed and side tables, chest of drawers, book case and a small trunk for bed linen). But then I have no wish to spend my waking hours in my 'sleep space'. Less is more.

We’ve recently done this. Teen movie nights for our girls meant being kicked out of the front room and dining chairs weren’t comfy after a while! We’ve moved our bed and fit two chairs under the window. Works perfectly for a study area, book reading, Sunday morning coffee and chat! We love it having another seating area.
