How to Create a Cozy Reading Nook, your personal sanctuary!

How to Create a Cozy Reading Nook, your personal sanctuary!

Have you been wondering what to do with that little unused, dead or awkward space in your home? Or you have been thinking of ways to breathe life into your reading nook perhaps?

Not only do nooks helps maximize living space, they help provide a personal sanctuary in which you can get lost in the books alone or have a family reading time together, yet it is a perfect avenue to keep the reading culture in your home! Below are a few ideas to get you started.

Comfortability is Key.

Are you an avid reader or just someone who likes to have a quiet place to think? Begin with a comfortable armchair, our Havana Indigo Armchair or Brooke Armchair are both comfortable reading chairs. Do not forget a place for your cup of tea or some plants- for lovers of nature, see our Rose Hydrangea Bouquet for example, which adds a softness to the setting. 

While picking a suitable spot is important, even more important is the lighting of your reading nook. Lighting can make the difference in you staying for five minutes, or lingering until you finish just one more chapter and then another, a useful tip to is to ensure you have at least 2 lighting sources:

  • One of them should be a natural light source. This enables your nook to be used at multiple times of the day for reading, but also for relaxing, taking a look outside, and even daydreaming.
  • A second lighting source can be a lamp, whether it be a floor lamp or table lamp. Sit in your reading nook at varying times of day to assess what type of lighting you are lacking.

Add a great cushion with a feather insert for added comfort and the icing on the cake is your throw for cooler days! Hamptons Style has all of your needs for a classic and styling Hamptons home.
