Reading corner ideas: how to create and style your own literary haven
Style a nook that’s strictly for reading and relaxing
There's nothing like a favourite reading corner, a cosy place where you can curl up and lose yourself in a book. From a favoured window seat to a comfy chair, a reading nook is the perfect place to forget your troubles and venture into someone else's world.
How to create a reading corner
First, choose your spot. You’ll want a space that’s quiet and, if possible, away from distractions, such as dishes that need washing. Somewhere that you can escape reality in. Maybe it’s the corner of a bedroom, or perhaps it’s in a conservatory or lesser-used dining room.
Next, consider your comfiest reading position and choose a chair to accommodate your many reading sessions to come. You could choose an armchair or sofa, a hammock, swing chair or floor cushions.
Finally, add the finishing touches. This might include shelves to stash books, a light source for late-night reading, somewhere to prop your coffee mug and decorative touches too, such as artwork or even a decorative canopy.
