Cozy up with a reading nook
The weather outside may be frightful, but a reading nook is so delightful. Warm up this winter by making a quaint reading nook for your Milwaukee home. Take a look at some easy ways to create your literature oasis below.
- Get cozy: You want to make sure that your reading nook boasts a comfortable seating area—but also a space that is going to keep you awake and prevent you from dozing off instead of reading. Look for upholstered chairs and comfortable benches, items you can easily find at an antique or thrift shop.
- Let light in: You don't want to strain your eyes when reading, so make sure the area you choose for your reading nook is abundant with light. Natural light is the best form, so it's great to situate your chair near a window. If you're someone who likes to read at night, purchase lamps as well.
- Use your creativity: "A lantern-lit reading nook covered by a sheer canopy is perfect for reading goodnight stories. Drape a bed canopy or delicate white curtains from the ceiling and pair with a hanging lantern for a cozy, cave-like space that kids will love to curl up in," states the Huffington Post. When it comes to creating a reading nook for you or your children, think outside of the box.
