Find your perfect spot

Finding the right spot is obviously the first and most crucial step. Take a slow walk around your home and look for a place you will enjoy spending your time. Or think of a space where you spend most of your time. It can be around your window, an empty corner, or even your room. Ideally, it should be quiet and warm.  

Get the seating right

Once you’ve found the perfect spot, it’s time to start thinking of a seating arrangement. Think a little out of the box. Also, consider what type of seat you would prefer – an armchair, floor lounge, recliner chair, or a rocking chair. Having a seat and something to rest your weary feet on is heavenly.
