The Perfect Reading Nook
Creating a comfortable and cozy corner in the home has become an important and popular choice for homeowners. Today we wanted to share what makes a perfect reading nook stand out from the rest so you can create a quiet oasis in your own home! If you have a love for reading and taking some quiet time for yourself, then this Shop the Look feature is for you! Let’s explore how you can create the perfect reading nook for your home!
How to Recognize a Reading Nook
Typically, a reading nook is either a quiet corner of the home or a small dedicated room for quiet reflection and other activities like reading. Within this area, you will often find comfortable seating, an array of bookshelves or shelving, books, and cozy textiles. Good lighting is also an important factor that plays into the overall design.
A reading nook has often been described as “mini-worlds created within your bookshelf” and that couldn’t be more true! As our lives become busier and busier we need to find little pockets of stillness and quiet time to recharge. Whether you’re into crime thriller books or those to help develop a positive mindset, creating a little corner of your home dedicated to reading and other quiet activities like meditation, increases its effectiveness.
Creating a reading nook is possible in any home. All you need is a quiet and secluded corner of your home. This could be an area of “dead space” that hardly gets used or even by transforming a large window into a window seat specifically for reading. If you can find an area that has lots of natural light – even better!
This style often includes:
- Comfortable and deep seating
- Soft and cozy textiles to add more comfort
- Good natural lighting and focused task lighting
- Organised bookshelves
