Jumpstart Your Day: 5 Ideas for Your Reading Nook
Convert a plain corner at home to a cozy haven for you and your books
We all have a special corner at home where we can relax and take a break. If you love to spend some quiet time with your books, you can transform a plain corner or space at home into a comfy reading nook or library.
Here are five ideas that you may want to consider.
If the space allows, you can turn a bedroom corner into a reading nook for you and your kids. Simply install curtains that can separate it from the rest of the room. Add a rug and a couple of floor pillows as well. To keep your reading materials organized, you may have a mini shelf and wall shelves, too.
RL Tip: Make your reading corner vibrant by opting for pillows and curtains in cheery hues.

If you have an extra room at home, you may choose to turn it into a mini library. Add a shelf that can cover the entire wall then put your favorite reads on display. While you can add chairs and maybe a sectional sofa, you can be extra adventurous by adding a hammock instead! Complete the laid-back vibe by adding a couple of indoor plants.
RL Tip: Consider an area near the window so you can enjoy plenty of natural light. This helps you save on electricity, too.

Most of us would love to enjoy the company of our books alone. If you want to create a reading nook while having a special place that's only for you, you may convert one part of the bedroom into a hidden nook, complete with sliding doors. Take inspiration from the photo above. Install open shelves to keep your reads organized then repurpose old windows into doors.
RL Tip: Make sure that this part of the house is well-lighted. Consider using LEDs to save on costs.

If you live in a condo home with limited floor space, proper space planning is of utmost importance. Separate your reading nook from the rest unit by having a shelf or cabinet to serve as divider. Aside from displaying your books, this shelf can also hold accents and decor pieces.
RL Tip: Personalize your nook by decorating it books and other knickknacks. Aside from adding wall decals, you may also hang and display your favorite titles from the ceiling.
