Sometimes you need more than just your own bedroom. When you need that extra quiet space to relax, you should consider a master suite with a sitting area. A master bedroom that has a separate area for some seating, desk, or even a media area can be a welcome getaway. Dan Sater has been designing award-winning homes that include sitting areas in the master bedroom for almost 40 years.
Many studies have been done that centered around getting a good nights sleep. Almost all of them recommend that you try and use the bed for sleeping and not other activities. It centers around the idea of sense memory.
If you spend a lot of time watching TV or reading in bed, your body won’t relax when you climb into bed. It will expect to be entertained and it will be restless. A sitting area in your bedroom can help with this by giving you a comfortable, private area to read or watch TV. This will help make the bed the special sleeping place your body expects.
