A vacant space under a set of stairs can easily be transformed into a reading area with the addition of an armchair, and little else. It's a simple, cost-effective change - no shelving, carpeting and so on necessary. You just need to fit in with the colour scheme of your hall.
You also need to ensure that you measure the outer dimensions of a piece of furniture - when you are limited for space, it is the outer dimensions that are going to be the important ones. It is as well to remember that whatever the outer measurements of your armchair are, the interior measurements are going to be smaller - so make sure you will have enough room to actually be comfortable when sitting in the armchair.
The conservatory as TV-less living room argument is persuasive though. Perfect for entertaining guests before dinner, or even for day-to-day reading, web browsing, or just for sitting down with a cup of coffee and looking out at the scenery. You could start with an armchair, and then add other living room accoutrements if the armchair trial proves successful and desirable.
Planning out your space is absolutely crucial when you are living in a small space. For safety you need to allocate a safe space between articles of furniture. In the case of between chairs and the sofa, a space of between 2 to 3 feet should be adequate to prevent hitting the exterior against the furniture every time you move. You also need to have a minimum of 2 foot between the front of your chair or sofa and your coffee table to allow you sufficient room when you stand up. You don't really want to overbalance and keel over across the coffee table if you lose your balance!
As a result, we're sometimes forced to poke at devices in the dark, all while finding brightness settings that strike the delicate balance between readability and how much it disturbs our sleeping partners. We could always move off the bed, but what's more comfortable than a bed in a bedroom? An armchair could be a close second. It's a wonder more people don't have comfortable seating in their bedrooms for this very scenario.
Why restrict ourselves, though? There are a number of rooms that armchairs would easily fit into, and in fact, there are a number of use cases that are crying out for armchairs above all else. With handcrafted furniture companies (see below for an example), you have ample options to tailor an armchair to those specific environments. No need to worry about your armchair looking like it's been pulled straight out of the living room and is being held somewhere else temporarily.
