With the announcement of a third lockdown across the UK, we will all be spending a lot more time indoors. While this is tough news for everybody, one of the plus points is that you have plenty of time on your hands to enjoy a whole stack of good books. All you need now is the perfect place to enjoy them. So, in this blog post, we are going to suggest a few ways that you can create a beautiful reading nook.

Choose Your Space

You may have plenty of space at home, but even if you don’t, a reading nook only requires a small corner. Ideally, it will be in a quieter part of the house where you can really enjoy your book without distraction.

Put in Some Soft Furnishings

First, you need the perfect chair that invites you to sink into it. You can then add some cushions and pillows for added softness. During the colder months of the year, a fluffy blanket or throw will ensure that you stay nice and toasty.

Add in a Bookshelf

Not only does a bookshelf have a practical function, but it also gives you the chance to see all your books on display and get excited about the ones that you still have left to read. One of our surprise books would make the perfect addition to your shelf.

Get the Lighting Right

There is nothing that can ruin a reading nook more than bad lighting. If you can put your reading nook next to a widow, this gives you the opportunity to enjoy the natural light during the daytime. A reading lamp is the obvious choice for when it gets darker, but you could also light a candle or two. Choose a scented variety for an even greater sense of relaxation.

Bring in the Natural World

Your reading nook should be a place where you can relax and unwind. A greater connection to the outside world is a proven way of boosting your mood and reducing stress. So, why not add a houseplant or two? Just make sure that you remember to water them!

Put in a Bluetooth Speaker

Some people like to listen to their favourite tunes while reading. Others prefer calming ocean noises. A Bluetooth speaker is a convenient way of giving your reading nook audio access. You could even start listening to audiobooks.

By putting a combination of these ideas into practice, you can create the perfect reading nook and a calming environment to escape the stresses of the modern world.
