6 Different Ways to Use Accent Chairs in Your Home

When it comes to accent chairs, there are seemingly endless possibilities as to how you can style them in your home. An accent chair can provide extra seating when needed, but they can also be used to add a splash of color or personality to any room. In this blog post, we will take a look at some different ways you can use an accent chair in your home. Whether you're looking for ideas for the living room, bedroom, or even the kids' room, we've got you covered!

The Common Living Room Accent Chair

One popular way to use an accent chair is as additional seating in the living room. If you have a large living room, you can use an accent chair to create a cozy reading nook or conversation area. You can also use two accent chairs to flank a sofa or create an intimate seating area in a large living room. If you're short on space, an accent chair is also a great option for small apartments or homes.

Don't Underestimate Accent Chairs in the Bedroom

Another great way to use an accent chair is in the bedroom. An accent chair can be used as a place to put your clothes on after getting dressed or as extra seating when entertaining guests. You can also place an accent chair in front of a vanity in your bedroom, instead of a stool. If you're looking for a more subtle way to add style to your bedroom, an accent chair is a great option.

Welcome Guests with an Accent Chair

The entryway is another often-overlooked spot in the home that can benefit from an accent chair. An accent chair in the entryway can provide a place to sit down and take off your shoes or to put on your coat. It can also be used as a makeshift table when you need to set something down while you're coming and going.

The Home Office Needs to Be Comfortable

Having a home office is becoming more and more popular, and accent chairs can be a great addition to this space. An accent chair in the home office can provide a comfortable place to sit while you're working or taking a break. It can also be used as an additional spot to store books or other office supplies.

What's One More Chair in the Dining Room?

You might think it's weird to have an accent chair in the dining room, after all, there should be enough chairs already. But an accent chair can actually be a great way to add style to your dining room. An accent chair in a dining room adds a touch of elegance to frame your other furniture such as a hutch with your fine dining, or fancy bookcase.

Even Kids Need a Place to Sit

The kids' room doesn't need a whole sofa, but it would still be nice for them to have a place to sit and read or even a place for the parents to sit when they need a break. An accent chair is a perfect solution! Not only does it provide a comfortable spot for kids to relax, but it also adds a touch of style to the room. 

At Couch Potatoes, we have what we call, "The Tater Tots" section (cute right). It's kid-friendly furniture such as our bean bags, which may also be a great option for accent seating in the kids' rooms.
