How to create a cosy reading nook
Like to escape in a good book? Then maybe you should consider turning an area of your home into a reading nook; where you can read without distractions. With a few key furniture pieces and somewhere to put your collection of books, you’ll soon be ready to get lost in the latest page turner.
2. Build a library wall
If you have lots of books, you’ll need somewhere to store them. One idea is to create a bank of bookcases. To achieve this, simply line up a few bookcases in a row along a single wall. For a tidier, uniformed look, use ones that are of the same design and height.
4. Include a footstool
There's nothing more relaxing than putting your feet up with a good book. So why not treat yourself to a cushioned footstool. Pair it up with a plush armchair and a snug blanket and you’re all set for a reading session.
5. Lay a patterned rug
Add pattern and colour to your reading nook in the form of a statement rug. For some warmth and texture, go for a shaggy style that you can bury your feet into after kicking off your shoes.

Creating a reading corner for kids
Having a dedicated area for reading in a playroom or child’s bedroom can foster a love of books from an early age. A space like this should be cosy and inviting, away from the distractions of TV and technology. Decorate it with cushions and some blankets to make it a comfy place to read in.
Reading corner essentials
Instead of having a chair or stool in their reading corner why not opt for a beanbag instead. Available in a range of sizes, styles, colours and fabrics, beanbags provide a relaxed setting for reading.
