Thanks for visiting our master bedrooms with sitting areas photo gallery where you can scroll through all kinds of master bedrooms with sitting areas.
I love sitting areas. I like them all over the house, including the master bedroom. That’s one reason I like large hotel lobbies – all the sitting areas they provide.
Consequently, this was one of the most enjoyable galleries I put together. I think you’ll enjoy the diverse designs and ideas below.

It doesn’t matter what size or how much space your master bedroom has, you can increase the space’s beauty and functionality by adding a small sitting space in your most private quarters. Whether you choose an elegant chaise lounge, a pillow-covered window seat, or several cushy armchairs, master bedrooms with sitting areas are perfect as a place to wind down with a book or relax with your morning newspaper at the end and beginning of the day.
Of course, the type of sitting area in your bedroom is going to depend heavily on your available space, and design options will vary widely if you have a compact, medium, large, or even expansive bedroom. Out of 148,473 bedrooms surveyed, only 10% were considered compact, the most challenging rooms to add a sitting space, while all the other bedrooms were spaced between larger sizes (see chart below).
You can find dozens of rooms featuring sitting areas for inspiration online, if you are thinking of featuring one of your own. But no matter how you choose to create one, a sitting area in your bedroom can evolve your room’s functionality into a room that goes beyond just sleeping at night.
How to Choose Seating For Your Sitting Area
There are several tips you can take advantage of when deciding and creating the ultimate sitting area in your bedroom. Just remember to be creative, and something as simple as a single chair and a small table can make a big difference.
First, take stock of how much space you have available, and remember not everybody has reasonable space for that full body chaise you have been eyeing. Ideal places include bay windows or a small balcony or porch, but you can also make do with just a corner that can be emptied of other cluttering furniture; you can even replace a nightstand with a chair if your bedroom is extra tight.
Create functionality by deciding how the space will be most used, either for conversations with two chairs divided by a small table, or as a reading nook that includes a throw blanket and several pillows. Remember that either way, your bed still takes center stage in the room, so make sure your seating compliments it in form, color, and materials.
Consider multiple seating areas if you have a large family who like to visit you in the morning as you check your email. A desk space, combined with a small couch, can work wonders in your use of the space.
Choosing Where to Put Your Sofa
A master bedroom with a sofa is increasing its functionality by adding a space for conversation, a cozy reading niche, and even a comfy seat to watch some television in the evening while your spouse sleeps. However, choosing exactly where to put your new sofa, depending on placement of the bed and other furniture pieces, can be tricky.
If space is a concern, one popular option is to place the sofa just at the end of the bed, in place of a trunk or foot board. In this way, the television or other focus pieces of the room can be enjoyed by individuals who are either sitting or lying down without cumbersome moving of heavy objects.
For master bedrooms with a sofa who also have a bit more space along a wall, a sofa can be placed on one side of the room, opposite a focus wall or closet, giving you a place to cozy up and read. An ideal location for a sofa is somewhere you can sit while also enjoying the view out the window.
