Have you ever wished you had a nice peaceful area in your home with plenty of natural light where you could sit and enjoy reading with your morning tea or coffee? An owner’s suite sitting room gives you a private space connected to your bedroom where you can relax and read or watch TV without lying in bed. It also makes your bedroom feel larger and more open.
According to the American Sleep Association (ASA), watching TV, eating or working in bed can disrupt your sleep by interfering with your circadian rhythms. If your brain gets used to being stimulated by watching TV, using your mobile devices or working while in bed, you won’t be able to relax as easily when you go to bed, making it difficult to get a good night’s sleep.
A sitting room is a great addition to an existing home and a high-value option on a new home build for a minor additional investment. You don’t need a huge home or mansion to have a beautifully decorated owner’s suite sitting room. Even a small sitting room will make any size bedroom look and feel more spacious. Incorporate natural light in your sitting room by adding plenty of windows, especially if you have a nice view. The sitting room in an Epcon home can also become a screen porch or covered patio instead. This allows homeowners to choose the structural options that work best for them and how they want to live.
When it’s time to furnish your sitting room, while aesthetics are important, make sure the furniture is comfortable to sit on or no one will want to use the space. Comfortable chairs, a love seat or chaise lounge, and a small table will make the space useful and inviting for peaceful, relaxing time in your favorite spot.
