The right accent chair says a lot about your personal style, and although there are different kinds out there, they all have one thing in common: they can complement your space if you use them – and choose well. An accent chair can be quite versatile, which means you can place them in your bedroom, your living area, your dining room, and even your bathroom. Unlike other pieces of furniture that have to stick to your home’s overall theme, you can experiment with accent chairs and mix and match them with other pieces of furniture – in other words, you can go all out when it comes to patterns, colours, textures, shapes, sizes, and so on. But if you’re thinking of sprucing up your home with various accent chairs, it pays to choose them well for each space. Here’s how you can fully maximise accent chairs in your bedroom, living room, dining room, and more.
For your living room
Accent chairs are most commonly seen in the living area, and this is where you can create a nice and cosy corner where people can relax and converse with each other or where you can use accent chairs rather than a sofa or couch, especially if your space is small. For your living room, your best bet would be to move your chairs around the area so they can complement your living room’s focal point – whether it’s a coffee table and sofa or a fireplace. The best aspect about accent chairs is that you can easily transfer them to different areas as you see fit, and you have various options for placement – in the corners, as mentioned, beside a couch or sofa, against a bare wall, and so on.
For your bedroom
If you have a big enough bedroom, you can fill it with an accent chair without completely overwhelming the space. And while beds are essential for any bedroom, an accent chair can serve as extra seating if you simply want to curl up with a good book and relax or find a place where you can comfortably remove your shoes at the end of the day! Your best option would be to place your accent chair in a corner of the bedroom, along with a small side table and a lamp so you can have a cosy nook, but you can also place an accent chair at the end of the bed and off to the side. If you have a dressing table, rather than using a stool or bench, why not use an accent chair instead? Modern chairs are sleeker than most, and they would fit well with a contemporary bedroom with their slim lines and features. Of course, if you want something more substantial, you can always opt for a cushioned armchair as long as it goes well with the space.
For your dining room
Your dining area can certainly benefit from an accent chair, and for the space, you can make use of slipper chairs in a low style or club chairs if you have extra space. If you want to encourage lounging around your dining area, you can opt for club chairs or larger wing-back chairs at both sides of your dining table, and this can also give your dining room a mix and match personalised appeal.
