Comfort - we all want it in our living room as that is where we are often able to escape from the daily humdrum of life.
In particular, if you really enjoy sitting in front of the TV watching your favourite show or simply just reading a book with the fire blazing away in the background, you’ll want to make your armchair as comfortable as possible.
No armchair? This blog is just as relevant to improving the comfort of your sofa or whatever chair you’ve made your throne in the living room.
If you were provided with a cushion when you purchased the chair in question it may well have seen better days since when you first bought the chair, or maybe you just think it wasn’t providing enough comfort. If a bog standard cushion is not enough, look at investing in a wool cushion.
Wool cushions add an extra level of class to a room, but more importantly will help make your armchair far more comfortable. They feel nice and soft and due to the natural properties of will stand the test of time and are bio-degradable too, so you rest easy as well as comfortably!
Aside from wool cushions there are a number of other ways to improve the comfort of your armchair and living room though.
Foot Stool/ Foot Rest
Many armchairs boast a leg rest for extra comfort, but if yours does not come equipped with such an extra level of comfort, why not look at a foot rest. Of course these will have to vaguely match the upholstery or design of your current armchair, but if you return to the same shop you bought the chair from, you’re sure to find something. If not, just look for elsewhere for something vaguely similar
A throw can add a simple extra layer of comfort to your armchair and obviously has the added advantage of being easily used as something to wrap yourself up in on an especially cold night. They spread just as well over a sofa although if you’re sharing the sofa with a loved one there may be a fight to capitalise on the extra warmth provided by a throw on those cold nights!
Side Table And Lamp
If you really want to heighten your level of comfort in the lounge, why not invest in a side table and lamp if you don’t have one already. These simple additions will make reading a book that little more cosy than simply having the main light on. The lamp can sit nicely on the table and if you pick one with varying brightness settings, you can create a level of light to match your mood.
A Universal Remote
More about the convenience than comfort, although with a good universal remote you may not need to get up and turn the DVD/Blu Ray player on, one of these remotes is a must for those wanting to be a couch potato once they sit down in their living room. Make sure your devices are compatible and you will never again have to worry about reaching down the side of your chair for the tiny speaker remote which always goes missing when you’ve just sat down to watch your favourite action flick!
A combination of the items on this is certain to make your armchair lounging that little bit more comfortable, so look what’s out there, grab your favourite book or film and sit down and enjoy!
