Love a good book? Create a reading Nook! A Place to Relax and Unwind

Written by Lauren Cook | 2/24/2020


It’s cold outside and some of us are still choosing to stay at home on the weekends due to the pandemic. This creates the perfect opportunity to pick up a book and get cozy. It’s nice to have a dedicated space to reading, or a reading ‘nook’. My reading nook is simple: a recliner in the corner of my living room and a table for my cup of coffee or tea. However, there are many different ways to create a cozy little space for reading!


First, you’ll want to find a space that is quiet and sort of isolated away from the main gathering areas of your home. A place where you can relax, concentrate, and focus.


Next, you’ll want to find some comfy seating. This can be a cozy chair, bean bag, a bench, a pile of fluffy pillows on the floor, or a combination of different seating as seen in the photo below.

Adequate lighting will be important unless you have an E-reader or tablet. I have an E-reader but I still prefer to have some dimmed lighting. You can install a fixture, or simply use a lamp you may already have around the house.

Add a little end table, a cup of coffee or tea, and you will have yourself the ultimate space where you can relax and unwind.
