How to Decorate a Bedroom With Chairs a Small Table
A small table and pair of chairs enhance your bedroom’s function.
If your bedroom contains a pair of chairs and a small table but you don’t put them to good use, you’re missing an opportunity for your space to multi-function. Position an arrangement of these pieces with other bedroom furnishings that can establish an area to enhance relaxation or accomplish tasks. Take advantage of a sitting area created from a table and chairs to transform your bedroom into a better refuge than you ever imagined.
The taller profile of today’s mattresses and beds makes sitting on the bed to dress or put on your shoes a little difficult. Instead of a nightstand or chest, place a table flanked by chairs to one side of the bed or between two beds. Or, position them at the end of a queen- or king-size bed instead of a bed-end bench. The chairs can hold your robe or the next day’s clothing, while the table holds your accessories, purse or the contents of your pockets. Decorate the chairs with small accent pillows that coordinate with your bedding. If you have a hard floor, use a small round or rectangular rug under the table and chairs or one large rug that extends from under the bed to include your sitting area.
Even if you’re not the type to have breakfast in bed, your bedroom is a change of scenery for breakfast, lunch or a snack. Place the table and two hard chairs at a window or in a corner. Use an alcove and paint it a color that coordinates with the rest of the room but sets it apart. Get away from the noise and activities of the living areas and enjoy a cup of coffee or an entire meal — alone or with someone. For softness, drape the table with fabric that coordinates with your bedding and window treatments. Accessorize the table with a pretty vase containing fresh or artificial flowers.
Form a lounge area with a pair of upholstered chairs and small table between them. Angle the chairs toward each other and add one or two ottomans to prop feet for greater relaxation. For the table, place a crystal liquor decanter and glasses on a lacquered tray. If you prefer, stash a small refrigerator stocked with soft drinks nearby. Add a container of mixed nuts or snack crackers to the table. Use draperies to soften natural light, or hang a small chandelier that dims. Music will help set the mood you desire for your lounge area.
The bedroom is the place where you do your best planning and most creative thinking, so it makes sense to have an area designated for these endeavors. Set up your table and chairs away from the distractions of television viewing and out of the pathway to the bathroom. Equip the area with the tools you need for your tasks — a laptop, pad and pen, shopping inserts, your calendar or whatever you need for making notes, doing creative writing or planning your activities. Furnish the area with good lighting in the form of a floor lamp or table lamp. Keep the area tidy and attractive with baskets and boxes to hold your materials.
