It is my philosophy that every bedroom should have a place to sit other than the bed.  Even in a small room where there isn’t enough space for a chair, you can normally  squeeze in a bench at the foot of the bed.  If there is room, I try to make a cozy space for spouses to have an intimate setting.  Maybe create a place where you can have coffee together by a window on a Sunday morning or a glass of wine in the evening while getting dressed for a night out. This type of furniture plan in a bedroom makes for a beautifully lived in space and can help your bedroom feel like a retreat!
