How To Create The Perfect Reading Nook

To say home life has changed is an obvious understatement. But with all changes, there are some silver linings if you care to look for them. While spending more time at home can have its challenges, there’s also no better time than now to create the sort of calm and healing space at home that life demands of us now. 

A good old-fashioned reading nook is a space dedicated to solitary pursuits, the original one of those being reading. But whether it’s reading or streaming content, the principle is still the same, a reading nook should be your safe space to spend time – away from the normal pressures of life.

 

HOW BIG SHOULD MY READING NOOK BE?

The size of your reading nook will depend on a few factors, firstly, how much space you can allocate and how many people realistically the reading nook is intended for. Traditionally, a nook was for one person, but there’s obviously no hard and fast rules here.

CHAISE LOUNGE, OCCASIONAL CHAIRS, BOOKSHELVES AND LAMPS

These are the traditional elements that make up a reading nook. A cosy corner, preferably with a window for natural lighting would be an ideal position for your nook and your chosen pieces. But you may have some other under-utilised area of your home that would make for a cosy nook, such as a corner of a large bedroom, or even a spare bedroom.

READING NOOK, COSY CORNER OR MEDITATION SPACE

Let’s be honest, the act of reading a book, or even a magazine is not the only way people pass their solitary time anymore. Many people now prefer to stream content, play video games or chat with friends online. Meditation is also a solitary pursuit that a lot more people have recently embraced.

THE MANY USES OF TODAY’S READING NOOK

The elements of what makes up your reading nook will be determined by how you choose to spend the majority of your time in your dedicated, cosy space. But there’s no reason, assuming space allows, that you can’t create a reading nook that caters to a variety of uses. For instance, aside from the traditional pieces for a reading nook, such as a chaise lounge, or chair and a lamp, the addition of a beautiful ottoman or floor cushion could then allow the reading nook to also be used as a stylish meditation space.
