The lounge room as the world once knew it, is no longer in the modern home. It’s quite a shame really because it offered something we crave today. We’re all trying to find ways of slowing down our minds, being at one with our thoughts, just enjoying the world around us and taking time away from the rest of the world. The modern home comes with a living room and a dining room, and although both can be used for leisure, they’re not really for lounging. If you have a spare room, you should convert it into a contemporary lounge room. Better yet, a loft!
The first things you need
You’ll need to be able to easily access your loft lounge and that means installing some kind electric ladder. You can find out more and explore your options but the electric ladder will be made out of aluminum. The reason why one should go for an electric ladder is, manual ladders can be cumbersome and potentially hazardous for younger or older people. By the push of a button, anyone in your household can access the loft lounge and not have to work up a sweat trying to pull the ladder into position.
Chilled floor seating
Although you should have a reading chair, you should focus on floor seating first. Lofts are already low ceiling areas, and a lounge chair may not provide you with enough headspace when it’s placed in the corner. But a contemporary floor seat will. In fact, you can sit or lie on the chair, allowing you to take up any position you want. Floor seating as the added advantage of having greater stability. With more surface area supporting you, you’re in a less stressful position naturally. Place more cushions on the floor for a softer style or perhaps add an area rug that is made out of wool.
Let’s get personal
The whole point of a lounge room is that you shouldn’t need to worry about the little things. In the contemporary home, a smart personal assistant will do many things for you. That’s why you should have Echo Dot in the corner of your room, standing on a side table. Ask to play some music, turn on a podcast or perhaps, play some ASMR sounds that take you to another world.
Alexa can also dim the lights, change them to whatever color you want. This is of course if you already have smart technologies such as smart LED bulbs.
Table and chair
Having something as simple as a table and chair should not go undervalued. It gives you a nice place to sit and write, catch up on some work, write creative stories and somewhere to sit and read if you don’t want to lie down. A contemporary desk and synthetic cushioned chair are simple but stylish. A small table lamp would be a great addition to this set.
Loft lounges are so popular because they are like an escape from the rest of the house. These are just some inspirations to get you started, so begin exploring yourself!
