Your reading nook can be as basic or elaborate as desired, including plush pillows and blankets, cozy rugs, and wall art that shows your passion for literature.
If your dream is of creating an elegant library like Beauty and the Beast’s, make sure it includes a bookshelf so that your books are always within reach.
Choose a Comfortable Seating Option
No matter if it’s a comfy chair, sectional sofa or daybed that makes up your reading nook, comfort should always come first. Choose a seat which supports your posture while cushioning back and feet comfortably while offering flexibility to change positions easily. Add blankets and pillows for an even cozier feeling!
If space allows, consider adding a bookshelf to your nook. Not only will it keep all your favorite titles within easy reach, but you can even organize them by topic or author if that fits with your style.
Make a cozy reading nook without devoting an entire room by creating one in any corner of your bedroom using furniture on sale or DIY projects such as wall shelves. Add accents such as framed art prints and mood lighting (such as candles or string lights ) for even more inviting atmosphere and enjoyment!
Set the Scene
Your reading area doesn’t need to be limited to an enclosed nook; even part of a bedroom wall or the area between closet and dresser can become your own personal reading nook when outfitted with comfortable chairs, shelves and other elements.
Add a bookshelf or cabinet to store and organize your literary treasures easily and conveniently. Arrange books by color, title or any other method that best meets your needs.
Make your reading nook cozy and unique by decorating with fun touches to make it the reading area of your dreams. Add sentimental items, like photos of loved ones or art painted by them. A few houseplants or framed quotes also add depth and dimension. For an ultra-chic aesthetic, bookcase wallpaper may help turn any room into an idyllic library!
Add Personal Touches
Make your reading nook an extension of your home by personalizing its decor to reflect your individual taste and personalizing it for maximum relaxation. Even simple touches can transform this cozy corner, such as hanging up a poster from a nearby city or lighting scented candles to set the right atmosphere!
Your reading area should also be sequestered from the rest of your bedroom in order to prevent distractions and allow you to fully focus on reading your book. This can range from placing a low dresser perpendicular to one wall to more elaborate measures like creating a private canopy by hanging curtains around it; either option allows you to truly unwind and relax in this space. A fitted bookshelf storage system, like those created by customers for their closet reading nook, adds another personal touch; you can display everything from pretty mugs and ornaments as well as pictures of loved ones, plus even your book collection on this shelf!
Make the Most of Natural Light
Make the most of a reading space near a window by positioning your comfortable chair near its corner and surrounding it with side tables for your coffee and stacks of essential books. Be sure to add a lamp so you can continue reading after dark!
While you may dream of creating the look and feel of a library-inspired setting in your space, don’t be intimidated to make it your own with personal touches that reflect who you are and reflect the way that you like to relax. From photographs of loved ones and ornaments that remind you of literature (customer Sophia suggests one that smells just like old books!) – any element can add character.
Establishing a cozy reading nook doesn’t need to be an enormous project!
