Are you sitting comfortably?

THEN I’ll begin! Seating in the home is a vital element for being comfortable, and able to relax in your own environment.

Most homes will have a sofa, and, because of our holiday environment and the need to increase capacity for visitors, many of these will be sofa-beds.

But, apart from the sofa, there are lots of other options you can explore, which can increase the amount of seating in your home. Many of them are dual-purpose, so you can get the maximum benefit from them.

For example, an armchair that matches the sofa will probably take up a lot of room, because it will have the same style of arms which occupy a lot of space. If you work with a good interior designer or furniture shop, you should be able to buy just a sofa rather than a set, or buy a different style of armchair in the same fabric.

A club chair, which is small and rounded, can be upholstered to match the sofa, so that it “belongs” and saves space. Alternatively, upholster it in a toning colour or pattern, and make some scatter cushions for the sofa in the same material, so that it looks very “designer”.

Many British visitors particularly like sofas and chairs with higher backs, which are not particularly popular in Spain, so, having a sofa made locally to the client’s specific requirements is an added bonus, and not as expensive as you might expect.

Sometimes, if you have more guests than you have chairs, consider dual-purpose items such as pouffes, which, again, can be upholstered to match the sofa, and used as a footstool or spare seat, as needed.

They can also be made with a hinged top so you can use them for storage, and can be made to a size to suit your property. Some houses have bay windows, which can make perfect spots for installing an upholstered window bench. This will provide extra seating space whenever necessary, and it will be the preferred relaxation place for those who enjoy reading.

If you don’t have a dining table inside the property, consider some stools for the kitchen area facing the breakfast bar, or put a shelf on an adjoining wall, to make a little breakfast nook. Dining chairs need to be functional, comfortable and supportive, so you can linger over your meal, although, generally, more time is spent outside, rather than eating inside.

If you do like to eat outside, consider upright terrace chairs that can be used as dining chairs, but which also recline, so that you can use them to relax or sunbathe.

All items mentioned are available from Deco Nuevo, who will give free, no-obligation quotes in the comfort of your own home. Call them on 922 789729.
