Whether you choose to read on an electronic device or you still love the feel of a paper book, a book nook is the perfect way to incorporate your love of reading into your home. Creating a space dedicated to reading gives you a place to relax, recharge, and escape.
There are no rules when it comes to creating a book nook but you should align the design with your home's existing architecture. It can be something as simple as an alcove in your living room, to a secret room dedicated to reading. Some things to consider when planning your book nook include:
- Shelving: Take inventory of the space and determine where you can incorporate built-in shelving. Consider a floor-to-ceiling installation for a dramatic effect.
- Natural Light: Day time reading is made even better with plenty of natural light flooding your book nook. If there isn't already a window in this space consider installing a ribbon window near the ceiling for maximum light.
- Seating: Bringing in a cozy armchair would certainly work, but what about a window seat? Building permanent seating in the book nook helps create a truly one-of-a-kind space.
