How to Create a Cozy Reading Nook at Home

If you’re a bookworm, the idea of having a reading nook has probably gotten you all excited and starry-eyed. After all, what can come close to curling up in a sunny corner of your home in a comfortable chair with a nice book in your hands a mug of warm coffee to complete the entire experience?

From a design perspective, a reading nook is the perfect way to utilize that awkward corner that nobody knows what to do with. Or, you could transform all that space under the stairs into a cozy place to indulge in your favorite pastime.At any rate, it is surprisingly easy to set up a reading nook and these few suggestions should get you started on your project.

Good lighting

An absolute essential for any reading activity! Your reading nook should have adequate lighting, but nothing that’s too bright or harsh on the eyes. Go for some soft lights that makes it easy for you to see the print. During the day, nothing beats natural light, but it would be advisable to put up some curtains so the glare doesn’t get in way of reading your favorite book.

Comfortable Seating

There’s no way you can read for very long if you don’t have a comfortable seat. You could go in for the traditional armchair, or choose to experiment with other forms of seating, like beanbags, fluffy pillows, a long seat, or even a hammock (if that’s what you prefer).
Once you have these two things, everything else will fall into place. Get some shelves to keep your books, a table if you plan to use your laptop or do some writing, and some bric-a-brac to personalize your space. There, you have a cozy cubbyhole all to yourself.


Thoughtful accessories

Accentuate your abode of bibliographic solace with some thought-provoking  accessories. From exquisite book ends to alluring jars, pick your muse from a rich range at Keep it subtle and understated. Pick metallic colors or tonal shades. Avoid adding pop colours.



Happy reading!
