As you examine your home for the perfect reading nook, look for spaces that are rarely used and are away from noisy spaces or a lot of foot traffic. You may have a corner of the family room that looks nice, but if your kids could come in anytime to play video games, it would not be very relaxing. Likewise, if you have an under-used space in the kitchen right by the constantly revolving back door, you probably won’t be happy with your nook.
Look for spots in your home away from the main areas of entertainment and activity. If you have room in your bedroom, this is the perfect place for a reading nook. Space Wise suggests designing your special space in an area of your home as far away from distractions as possible. The corner of an office, a spare bedroom, a sunroom, or the master bedroom are all excellent options for a cozy reading nook.
