Peace & Quiet

Reading is a process that requires concentration and focus, and like that it is quite logical that your reading nook should be in a calm surrounding. This will enable you to relax and unwind after a long day. It should exude with serenity, so the best solution is to choose a distant corner in your house and transform it in a tranquility nook. This does not necessarily have to be a huge space, only enough for you to feel comfortable. It could quite easily be a small closet space, an unused pantry or a transformed storage facility.

Warm & Cozy

After you have established an isolated space to create your nook the next step is making it as comfy a possible. There is no better feeling than diving into your seat, snuggling in and parting with the real world for some time. The best way to achieve this cozy ambient is by placing a big armchair or a mattress. Do whatever feels more comfortable and top it off with a set of small cushions and blankets. Another thing that can really contribute to the whole ambient is that you add scented candles or incense sticks that will surely put your mind at ease.

Illumination

Perhaps one of the most important things when it comes to creating a reading nook is considering the lighting in the space. The best possible option is, of course, enabling as much of natural sunlight into the room. This is why it would be a good idea to create a nook somewhere near a window. If that is not possible, then make sure to invest in some good illumination of the space. Your reading nook should not be dark and gloomy, as this could greatly damage you eyesight.

Storage & Organization

Lastly, make sure that all your reading material has its own place. While most of us would gladly create an oversized library, the best idea is to add shelving and some drawers. This way, your books wouldn’t be scattered around. It is also a good idea to make it functional in a way that everything is at the reach of your fingertips.

Many will agree that reading is one of the truest pleasures in life. A good book has an ability to take you to a completely new world. It can alter your mind, your vision of the world, help your grow and develop throughout life. With these simple tips, you will create a portal to another dimension in the comfort of your home.
