Finding the Space for Your Reading Nook
If the kids have moved out and you have an extra room to spare, this is the perfect opportunity to convert the space into your own personal library and reading area using bookcases and library walls. This gives you plenty of room to bring in floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, sofas, plush chairs, and more to make your at-home library special. You'll have ample space for decor and accents, like the perfect wall art, calming oil diffusers and candles, and figurines that elevate your refuge.
However, not everyone has such a large area in their home. If you're working with a much smaller space, picking the right spot to convert to a reading nook is crucial. Even the smallest, most compact living rooms can feature this beautiful addition.
Look around and get creative. Consider where you currently do most of your reading, where you store your books, and what your ideal reading nook would look like in your mind. Then, go from there.
A few excellent options for creating reading nooks in smaller spaces include:
- Converting a walk-in closet.
- Choosing a breakfast nook in your kitchen.
- Making a station that you can easily move throughout your house if you can't find one dedicated area.
You're sure to follow wherever your books are, which is the most important thing. Identifying your available possibilities is the first step in accomplishing your goal.
