1. A bedroom is a sanctuary for the self. You can allot a space to work or do light tasks. Include a desk and a chair if space permits.
2. You can also assign a shelf in your bedroom for your prized collections, or a mini coffee/tea area with two chairs and a side table if space allows. Keep in mind the size of your room before considering adding nooks or specialty areas to avoid clutter
