A reading nook is a good idea for any home because, you know, you may not only read there, but also chat with friends, entertain yourself anyways with any gadgets your have at hand, have tea and coffee, play with pets and do many other things that come to your mind. A reading nook can easily become your favorite space in the whole home and you’ll never want to leave it. But how to create a super cozy space? Here are some tips.

Where

Start by deciding where you want your new reading nook to be placed. The most popular place is a corner of a living room. Why a corner? Because it’s better to pick a section of the room that could potentially feel a bit secluded. If it’s not secluded enough and you feel you’ll be disturbed here, switch to the bedroom as it’s already a cozy space so that’s an advantage.

Furniture

A complete reading nook setup might include a comfortable chair or lounger, a side table or an ottoman and maybe a bookshelf. Since a reading nook is usually a small space, multifunctional furniture is a very practical option. There are plenty of combos to consider such as benches with storage underneath, tables with bookshelves or even special reading chairs with built-in storage.

Speaking of reading nook chairs, choose a super comfortable one that has the right style, shape and size for you. If it’s not a lounger, you should also consider adding a footstool so you can truly relax. There are plenty of matching combos out there so look for the ones that best suit your needs, style and budget.

Lighting

The lighting is always important but plays a special role in the reading nook which is why you should ideally pick a spot close to a window if possible. In any case, you should also have sufficient artificial light as well so a floor lamp seems like a great choice. If the space is too small or you just don’t feel like a floor lamp, think of having a pendant one. It takes zero floor space leaving more room for furniture.
