3 Napping Nooks You'd Want To Sleep In

It's time to curl up and get cozy!


Who doesn't love a good midday nap? Especially for those who work from home, it's nice to take a break from all your scheduled tasks to recharge and power up every once in a while. 

Aside from being a dedicated spot for quick escapes, these cozy corners can be incredibly versatile too—they can double as reading nooks, an extra seating area or even a clever way to set up sleeping quarters for when you have guests over. 

To inspire you to build your own, we've put together three napping nooks you'd want to while away the afternoon in!

Achieve your own personal cave by setting up your napping nook at the end of a long hall. This is a great way to build you own space while still being close to the living area where the rest of your family could be hanging out. 

RL Tip: Stick with neutral hues to keep the small space bright and breezy.

Don't let the space under the stairs go to waste. Add a daybed and a few pillows to make it extra comfortable. Keep things interesting by picking out different textiles to add depth into this simple spot. 

RL Tip: Ask your trusty carpenter to add a few drawers at the foot of the bed—easy, sneaky storage!

If you're really running low on space, carve out a hole that's big enough for a single bed in a hollow wall. Make it extra snug by adding a thick duvet and a few big pillows to ensure a sweet slumber. 

RL Tip: Add two electrical outlets where you can plug in a small light or even charge your phone.
