If you’re planning on entertaining for the holidays you may be wondering how to make room for everyone. Today we’ll be looking at some clever ways to add some extra seating throughout your home. The best thing about many of these seating options is that they can be moved from room to room whenever you need an extra spot for guests to sit.

The Living Room

If space is at a premium it can be challenging to find a place to store extra seating, that’s when multi-purpose options can be your best course of action. An ottoman can double as a place to sit and as a coffee table or side table. If you have empty space under your existing coffee table you can store a shorter ottoman underneath freeing up precious floor space.

The Bedroom

A bench or a pair of stools at the foot of the bed can make a bedroom feel more welcoming and relaxing. Look for stools or benches that are roughly the same height as the bed or a little shorter. For an opulent touch consider seating upholstered in hide or leather.

The Bathroom

Besides giving you a place to sit, one of the benefits to having a small stool or seat in the bathroom is it can sometimes make the room feel more spacious. A wooden stool placed beside the tub is a great place to for your towel or a book.

In an Entryway

One of our favourite looks for an entryway is a bench paired with a tall console table, as pictured above. This versatile combination gives you plenty of surface area for mail and keys to be dropped off as well as a comfy place to sit and put on or remove shoes or boots. In the event of an extra guest a bench can easily be added to the dining table or living room.
