With small living rooms in most of the houses here, armchairs in Singapore are not commonly seen in HDBs or BTOs and even condos due to its limited space. Usually, a 3-seater sofa and a coffee table would fill up the living room, leaving homeowners hardly any space to add armchairs to increase seating capacity. More popular ways of adding extra seating capacity would be to opt for larger or L-shaped sofas in Singapore. Other alternatives are storage stools which adds as additional storage space as well as seats that can be placed around the living room when there are guests over.
However, armchairs are not only meant for the living room. They can be used around other areas of the house to make a statement and add style to your home decor that a dining chair, office chairs or any other forms of chairs for a single-seater can’t. Here are 5 other ways you can add an armchair in your house if you always dreamed about owning an armchair.
No matter which genre of books you love reading – horror, romance or non-fiction, you’ll get absorbed into the book for hours! Pair the armchair with a small side table to create a surface to place your cup of coffee or table lamp. Reading nook is a relatively easy way to fill up any empty and awkward corner of the house!
Welcoming the newest addition to the family always bring much fun and joy – from purchasing little itsy bitsy shoes, clothings, baby essentials to decorating the nursery room! Remember that the room should not only provide for the baby, but there should also be a corner where it makes it easy for the mother to breastfeed or cuddle the baby. And this is where you can select your dream armchair and place it at the corner of the room to spend some time with your little one!
If you have a room dedicated for work other than your usual office chair, you can also place an armchair in the corner of the room for times when you need to take a break from your work. Who knows, it might just become the inspiration chair for you whenever you hit a roadblock in your work!
Armchairs provide a comfy seating area other than the bench in Singapore at the entry hall to put your shoes on before leaving the house. The entryway is also the first impression of the house your guest gets when they enter your house so make full use of your entryway to wow your guests! However, understanding the layout of the HDBs in Singapore, placing an armchair would be more suitable for non-HDB homeowners due to the usually narrow or non-existent entryways in HDBs.
If you are blessed with a balcony, balcony sets are not the options you get! Consider some armchairs suitable for outdoors such as wooden ones which will be more durable against the harsh sun and heavy rain in Singapore.
