Choosing a spot in your bedroom for a chaise lounge depends on three things. Those are the amount of open space in the room, the layout, and the intended use of the chaise. While the lounges invite you to sit back and relax, they also can turn the space into a dressing room. They offer a place to sit as you get dressed before leaving home. Chaise lounges add a chic design element to your space and complement the existing pieces.
In front of a window is the perfect place to position your chaise lounge. Get custom curtains and custom roman shades that’ll let the natural light stream in and provide a place for relaxing with a cup of tea or reading a good book. Corners are cozy options for the lounge as well. Turn it into your sanctuary within your bedroom, giving you space to yourself for a little self-care.
The placement will also depend on the design of the chaise lounge. If it has a left or right-arm-facing design, your choices on where to place it are limited.
Position the lounge in a spot where it will catch everyone’s eye when they walk through the door if you intend to use it as a statement piece. Place a stylish floor lamp next to it and a colorful throw across the back or seating. Put the lounge in sight of the bedroom door allowing guests to catch a glimpse of it as they walk by.
A good material for bedroom chaise lounges is a hardwood frame and legs accompanied by microfiber or leather for the upholstery. Any combination of these durable materials stabilizes and strengthens the chaise lounge, ensuring you’ll get plenty of usage.
Oak, mahogany, and teak are hardwoods that are durable and resilient. They have a high resistance to damage, scratches, and dents. Softwoods like pine are less stable and more susceptible to damage.
If you want upholstery that’s stain-resistant and long-lasting, microfiber is what you need. It’s a suitable material for lounges used every day. Leather requires a bit more maintenance, as you have to polish it for it to keep its luster. But if you prefer the look and texture of classic leather, it’s a durable option. Other suitable upholstery fabrics for bedroom lounges are cotton and linen.
Whether you’re looking for a statement piece or prefer something more subtle, the choices are almost limitless. A complexly detailed chaise lounge highlighted with button-tufting, nail heads, ornate scrollwork, and attractive frills would work well in a traditional bedroom. These elegant chaise lounges are generally covered in a glossy material, like silver linen, for a luxurious touch.
In contrast, contemporary bedroom lounges are well-known for smooth lines and curves, tapered legs, and unique geometric designs. They’re very versatile and complement most interior design styles.
Transitional bedroom chaises strike a balance between traditional and contemporary designs. Incorporate an armless lounge with tufted features or a rectangular seat with bun feet and a rolled back.
