If you are someone who loves to settle in and relax after a long day with a good book and some time for yourself, then a cozy reading nook in your bedroom can prove to be the little corner of peace that you need.
The following are a few tips on how to create your reading nook:
Find the Perfect Spot
Is there a corner or alcove in your room that you think would make the perfect nook? If so, you have accomplished the first step. Next, you will need to decide on the kind of seating you want to use and then find a way to brighten up the space, so you can read your book without having to strain your eyes.
An occasional chair like the French Lorraine Chair can be perfect for your nook, and when it is dressed up with your favourite cushions and a luxury knit throw, you will find yourself settling down in absolute coziness.
For lighting, you can choose from a beautifully detailed table lamp, or you could light a few soy candles to create more of a peaceful and relaxing ambience in your reading nook.
You may also find yourself wanting to somehow seclude your reading nook from the rest of the room, so it feels like more of an escape. To do this, you can simply place a dresser or bookshelf perpendicular to the chair’s placement, so it acts as somewhat of a partition to separate the reading nook from the rest of the space.
Create the Atmosphere
Finally, you can add a few more small touches to bring everything together and really personalise your hideaway. The sweet aroma of soy candles or other sweet scents you enjoy can also help relax you while you’re in your new reading nook.
