When you’re looking for the ideal home for your new La-Z-Boy armchair, don’t feel you have to be restricted to your living room.

Armchairs are wonderfully versatile pieces of furniture and can turn almost any corner of your home into a comfortable spot to relax and unwind. Here are five great spots to try putting your armchair:

  1. Make your kitchen the heart of the home

The kitchen is often the focal point of a home but when it comes to seating, most people stick to dining room chairs or stools for the breakfast bar. While these are great, functional pieces, they are often lacking when it comes to the comfort factor. Adding an armchair into a corner of your kitchen will create a cosy nook where you can sit back and take it easy at the end of a long day. Whether you are looking for somewhere to curl up while you’re waiting for dinner to cook or you want to turn your kitchen into somewhere the whole family can spend quality time together, adding an armchair will certainly help make it the heart of your home.


  1. Create a feature in your hallway

Putting an armchair in your hall can add a visual point of interest in what is often the most overloooked room of the house. It can also serve a practical purpose as somewhere to sit and take off your shoes, open and read post or simply take a few minutes to unwind after a busy day. If your hallway includes an alcove or space under the stairs, adding an armchair can create a relaxing reading corner and help you make the most of what might otherwise be wasted space.


  1. Take the stress out of night feeds in the nursery

Getting up in the night to feed your baby is not a task many parents look forward to. However, placing a comfortable armchair in the nursery can at least make the experience more pleasant. Whether you are breastfeeding or bottlefeeding, it is important to be able to sit in a supportive chair while nursing your baby. The recline function on La-Z-Boy chairs will allow you to relax when you are trying to get your little one back to sleep. And as your child grows, your armchair can become the spot where you both snuggle up together and enjoy a bedtime story.


  1. Enjoy the outdoors by adding comfort to your conservatory

If you have a conservatory, orangery or summer house, then filling it with sumptuous seating is a must. You can enjoy your garden whatever the weather by kicking back in a luxurious armchair with a great view of the world outside. Adding armchairs and sofas to a conservatory can turn the space into a second living room where you can enjoy all the benefits of natural sunlight.


  1. Bring an oasis of calm into your bedroom

Most bedrooms are centred around a bed and very little else. Including an armchair in your bedroom gives you a lot more choice in how you use what should be the most relaxing room in your house. Rather than sitting up in bed to read, you could curl up in an armchair instead. Choosing the right armchair can also make a striking design statement and add a stylish finishing touch to your bedroom. It also gives you somewhere to lay out your clothes ready for the next day if you are pushed for time in the morning.
