How to buy the right chair for your bedroom

When you buy a piece of furniture, you have to ensure that it is comfortable, elegant, and functional at the same time. Here are a few things to keep in mind while buying a bedroom chair.

Before you purchase, measure your bedroom and work out how much space you can devote to the chair.  This will help you decide on the right type and size. Visualise which colours will suit the aesthetics of your home.

While checking for quality, see that the frame is strongly built and sits evenly on the floor. It shouldn’t creak or wobble when you sit on it. Joints with visible glue or nails indicate inferior quality, while those that are either dowelled or screwed in place indicate better quality.


What type of material should I buy?

Upholstery fabric comes in myriad material options. For instance, leather, cotton, velvet, microfiber, wool, and silk are all popular choices. Leather is excellent if you are looking for something durable and easy to maintain. It doesn't stain or absorb liquid when you accidentally spill something. Plus, they retain shape and strength for years.

Microfiber, on the other hand, is softer and comfortable but tends to stretch with time. Wool provides excellent insulation, is environment friendly, and does not wrinkle or fade. 

Velvet and cotton are two excellent materials that come in various colours. With their attractive and regal appearance, Velvet chairs are better suited for modern homes and proper use. But if you want a splash of colour or a bold print to add some fun to your room, cotton is the answer. It comes in various grades, prices, and designs, so there's something for the buyer.


Why bedroom chair is a good idea

Not all bedroom designers are into bedroom chairs. Some believe that it will just end up as a clutter magnet. But if you count the advantages, it’s numerous.

You can sit on a bedroom chair to put on your make-up or your socks and shoes. If you like reading or watching TV at night, it’s more comfortable to curl up on a comfy sofa than sit up on the bed. Entertaining a close friend or family inside your room also gets more accessible with a bedroom chair in place. Plus, beautiful chairs act as a great accent piece. 


How to take care of your chair

To keep your comfy chairs looking fantastic, here are a few things you can do.

Keep your chair away from the window or keep the blinds on. Direct exposure to sunlight can fade your upholstery fabric. 

Some fabrics require more upkeep than others. Vacuum regularly and have your chair cleaned by professionals at least once a year.

Clean your chair immediately if you happen to spill something. The further you delay, the more you risk your fabric getting stains and developing odours.
