If you love to read, you should seriously think about transforming a corner of your house into a reading nook! You don’t need much space, but depending on your home layout, you could make your reading nook as large as you like.
It’s important to have a quiet, cozy space in your home. The benefits of a quiet corner include:
- Time to reflect
- Reduced stress
- Renewed energy
Find out how you could decorate a reading nook and why you don’t need a large space to make one!
Choose a Reading Chair
Your reading chair can be absolutely anything you like! What kind of seating seems more relaxing to you? You could install an egg chair to serenely sway from your ceiling, or you could acquire a Lovesac bean bag and be enveloped by comfort.
If you have a bay window, you could acquire cozier cushions to relax and read by the window.
Acquire Some Shelves
Any proper reading nook needs some shelves to hold your books. You don’t need to have a grand bookshelf, so if your designated space is small, you still have options. A ladder shelf is narrow and tall, making the most of a confined space. Or you could choose to install one or a few singular floating shelves.
Invest in Cozy Accessories
There’s no better feeling than being curled up with a good book and a soft, warm blanket. Make your reading nook a cozy retreat that makes you feel serene. You could get some pillows for your back or to hold if you like extra support for your book. Get a blanket or two as well so your feet stay warm and you feel as comfortable as possible.
Get a Side Table
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a reader in possession of a good book must be in want of a drink. Lots of people like to drink tea or coffee while they read. You could get a small table to hold your drink, bookmark, or anything else!
There are several narrow round tables to choose from, or you could get a larger one with space to store small items. If you like to put up your feet, get an ottoman that has a hidden compartment to store blankets or your books!
Your reading nook should not only be a tranquil resting space, but also a reflection of who you are. So go ahead and decorate your reading nook any way you want!
