Spend More Time in These Cozy Reading Nooks

In a hectic world where everything is digital and online, having a quiet time alone with a favorite book is luxurious to say the least. There are many people who would love to add a reading nook in their homes but have little to no idea on how they would like their reading nook to look like. A reading nook is a particular part of a home where a person will find comfort and quiet while having a great time with a book or two, and there are a lot of designs that can fit any style of a home.


surrounded by all the precious books

A reading nook is meant to have enough space for all the books that a person will and have collected. The more space for books, the better! This is why this reading nook is just as perfect as it can be since it has several shelves for a large collection of books.



hidden chamber of comfort

Reading nooks are often in an open space, besides a large window to allow natural light in. However, open windows may not be available for some homes, and noise can be a nuisance. This hidden reading nook can prevent noise, provide the comfort of books without the noise or any other disturbance.


a cozy chair and steampunk lamp

A cozy, classic upholstered couch is never a bad mix with a steampunk floor lamp. Add a lovely side table to hold the books and comfortable pillows and have a personal reading nook that fits any small corner of the home.



the sunniest spot of all

Reading needs an ample amount of light and is necessary for a reading nook. Choosing the sunniest part of the home and making it a reading nook is perfect.  A couch that complements the color of the wall and usually in neutral colors is ideal for this type of reading nook.

lovely  blue bench for a perfect reading nook

Creating a nook does not mean spending money for a small space of the house. Repurposing old furniture can be a perfect option for people who want to achieve the best reading nook bench, complete with storage for books. The use of light-colored finishings can even make the reading nook bench a lovely place to stay on for hours.



canopy spot for intense reading sessions

For homes that do not have much space, setting up a  canopy for a makeshift reading nook is also a lovely idea. Using dainty fairy lights will help the nook stand out from the rest of the room. The canopy even gives a little more privacy for a person than other designs.



using the best part of the Attic

Attics can either become a room or a storage area that accumulates dust. The attic is also a place where the noise can be minimal and the light that comes in is abundant. Building a reading nook in the attic using pallet wood and cozy country pillows will be a great option rather than keeping the attic just as a storage area.

This setup is also very flexible since changing the flowers and the pillows can easily make it ready for warm, summer days.

While benches and couches are lovely as a reading nook, cocoon chairs are also very desirable since comfort is part of it and cocoon chairs are aesthetically beautiful.

Kids will not find this design boring and will probably want to spend time reading, and snoozing in this cozy little place.



lovely idea of maximizing space

The space under the stairs often gets left unused or just used for storing knick knacks, but making it into a reading nook is one idea that can be a better option to maximize space. It can be fixed with the right light, a little decor made with love and a cozy couch and earthy tone pillows and you have a reading nook that even kids will love.
