How to Set Up a Reading Nook at Home

Have you ever wanted to turn a room in your house into a reading nook? A comfy place where you can curl up and escape from the world?

These cozy corners are perfect for utilizing unused space and turning it into a relaxing haven to be enjoyed after a long day. To help you create one yourself here are some reading nook ideas to help you bring it all to life.



Does your home have a space that doesn’t seem to fit into your overall layout? If you said yes, you may have just found the perfect spot for a reading nook. Whether it is a corner, a hallway, or even a closet - don’t let that space go to waste. With a little imagination and design inspiration you’ll quickly see it become your favorite place.



Make yourself a warm and relaxing atmosphere with a comfy chair, plenty of pillows, throws, and gentle lighting. This is your time to get creative! Consider your palette and play around with accent colours and patterns to create a space that is both aesthetically pleasing and comfortable.



No reading nook is truly complete without a space to showcase your favorite books. Whether it's underneath a reading bench, a storage unit such as the Dali bookcase, or floating shelves there is no better place to store your book than where they are within reach.



With all your essentials in place it’s time to put the finishing touches to set the mood. Consider adding a nesting side table or one with a decorative top to hold your cup of coffee and create a cozy ambience. Pair this with a vintage record player, plants or a unique art piece for a space you won’t want to get up from!


The best home reading nooks are the ones you'll use. A comfortable reading spot is an invaluable addition to your home, whether it's for a few minutes of peace and calm or for hours of all-out reading marathon.
