Nov 9, 2007
The function of the bedroom is not restricted to resting only. In fact today, the bedroom is also a place for entertainment as well as study. In these ways, bedrooms also play the role of living room & study room.

While many houses have separate main rooms known as the living room or drawing room, some houses may not have separate study rooms. Hence in such cases it almost becomes compulsory for the bedroom to play the role of study room as well. Thus all of these help to make bedrooms multifunctional, and as such, bedrooms should be equipped with items that enable them to perform multifunctional duties.

Benches are more popular for outdoor uses on patios or in gardens. But the modern concept employs the use of benches in bedrooms.

- When you have guests or family over for any length of stay, generally after some times house guest are divided in groups based on age, sex, etc. The main room is occupied by one group & other group finds it convenient to move into bedroom to use the bedroom as a 'temporary living room'. In such cases, the bedroom benches are helpful in making the Bedroom a 'temporary informal living room"
