Creating Your Own Cozy Reading Nook

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design and Decorating

Are you in desperate need of an oasis from your busy, hectic life? There is no better way to relax than retreating to a comfortable space and getting lost in your favorite novel. If your reader or just someone who enjoys their personal time, you will without a doubt benefit from a private and cozy reading nook. 
How to Create Your own Cozy Reading Nook
1. Pick The Perfect Spot.
Selecting the right spot to set up your reading nook is key in order to create a spot that you can retreat to when you are in need of some “me” time. Luckily, reading nooks tend to take up very little space. It can be crafted in the corner of practically any room. Whether you chose your living room or your bedroom, it should be an area where you will have some privacy and there is a low level of noise. Since your nook is supposed to be a peaceful retreat, it should be in an area of the house that is away from distractions. 
2. Comfortable Seating Arrangement.
After you have selected the perfect spot, it is time to focus on creating a comfortable seating arrangement. Some reading nooks have a padded window seat that provides ample space to sit back and relax; however, if window seating is not an option for your home, we recommend investing in a formal chair. Make sure you invest in a chair that has padding and is generally comfortable to sit in because you will likely be spending a couple of hours sitting in it. Add in a few plush pillows and a cozy throw blanket for extra comfort.
3. Accessories. 
Of course, you will need added accessories to make the area functional. Be sure to include a simple table beside your chair. You can use the table to store your reading glasses, reading material and even a snack. Also, lighting is important when creating a cozy reading nook. Be sure to incorporate enough lighting to help make the space well-lit. Finally, if space allows, you cannot forget to add in a small bookshelf. A bookshelf near your reading nook will make all your reading materials easily accessible and organized.
