I believe every bedroom should have seating. Even the smallest bedroom has space for a side chair, bench or ottoman. This is the perfect place to place a tray for breakfast, or lay out your dress and heels before the dinner party (or his suit and tie combo if he needs fashion assistance). The men who sleep in beds with their wives who love pillows and lots of finery on the bed always ask where they are supposed to put everything when they are ready for bed???
I always install benches at the foot of the bed for that solution. Don't you love the way you can bring color and function to a space all at once?
Don't like the bench at the foot of the bed? In this room, we placed it in front of the windows and it worked perfectly.

You need a bench now, don't you?
