The reading corner is the perfect space to curl up and escape into an amazing world as you flip the pages of your latest book. We help you design that precious little nook with some easy DIY ideas.
1. If you have a small apartment and you think you can’t create a reading nook, do a double check. Look around and you’ll find the perfect space right by the window. A reading corner should have lots of natural light and what better way to take in some great views, while you ponder on the story you’re reading, than a lovely window sill? Spread out a vibrant floor cushion or a custom-made mattress and prop yourself up on a soft, cushy backrest. No hammers, no nails required to create this space. It’s that simple.
2. Invest in one of those high-backed plush chairs, if you are willing to shell out some extra bucks. Make a unique wooden foot rest–paint it, varnish it, paste a cushion on it. If you don’t already have a wall-to-wall bookshelf, get a tall shelved stool for your books that doubles up as a coffee table.
