A relaxing bedroom can help you get a good night's sleep, but a well-styled space will make you want to spend hours at home—not just the moment it's time to catch some z's. If you already have all the practical necessities for your bedroom (chic nightstands, reliable curtains, a cozy comforter), consider one more item to add: An accent chair.

Adding an accent chair is the perfect way to put your empty corner to good use and diversify the space.

Whether you live alone or share your home with roommates, an accent chair can serve as the perfect reading nook for when you're craving some alone time. And if you're decorating a master bedroom, it'll make the space look and feel luxurious.
