How to create a reading nook

A reading corner is a good idea for every home, because there you can not only read, but also chat with friends, still converse with all devices, drink tea and coffee, play with pets and do many other things, other things that are conveniently make sense to you. A reading nook can easily become your favorite spot in the house and you’ll never want to leave it. But how do you create a super cozy room? Here are some tips.


First, decide where to place your new reading nook. The most popular place is a corner of a living room. Why a corner? Because it’s better to choose a part of the room that feels a bit secluded. If it’s not secluded enough and you feel like you won’t be bothered here, move to the bedroom as it’s already a cozy space. So that’s an advantage.


A complete reading nook can include a comfortable chair or chaise longue, a side table or ottoman, and possibly a bookshelf. Since a reading corner is usually a small space, multifunctional furniture is a very practical option. There are many combinations to consider, e.g. B. Benches with storage space underneath, tables with bookshelves or even special reading chairs with built-in storage space.

When talking about corner reading chairs, choose a super comfortable one that’s the right style, shape, and size for you. If it’s not a day bed, consider adding a footstool as well so you can really relax. There are many matching combos. So look for the combinations that best suit your needs, your style and your budget.


Lighting is always important, but it plays a special role in the reading corner, so ideally you should choose a spot near a window. In any case, you should also have enough artificial light for a floor lamp to seem like a good choice. If the space is too small or you just don’t feel like a floor lamp, consider a pendant light. It takes up no floor space and leaves more room for furniture.


To really make your corner cozy, you should also add some accent details like some comfy pillows, a blanket, and some mood candles. Any accessory that you like and that goes with the style will do! Make yourself as comfortable as possible in your corner and spend a lot of time there.
