Creating a Cozy Reading Nook in Your St Charles Rental

Woman Relaxing in Her St Charles Reading NookFor book lovers, there is nothing better than a comfortable, cozy reading nook. Irrespective of whether you are renting your house, you can easily achieve the space you want. There are countless options that St. Charles renters like you can create a cozy reading nook in your home without making any permanent changes. With the right elements and a little creativity, you can make a reading nook that invites total relaxation.

To achieve the perfect reading nook, the best place to start is with the things that help you feel comfortable. It might be an oversized chair, some plush throw pillows, or your favorite throw blanket. Or, maybe you enjoy having pictures, flowers, or houseplants around you, giving an element of color and natural beauty to your indoor spaces. No matter what things make you feel calm and happy, create your reading nook by bringing these things into the space.

One of the best ways to create a reading nook is to add a comfortable chair to a peaceful corner of your favorite room. Even if your style calls for overstuffed upholstery, classic leather, or clean modern, go for a chair that invites you to sink into it and stay awhile. Install a floor lamp and a favorite throw, and you’re ready for long afternoons deep in a great book.

For some, no reading nook would be complete without close access to your prized book collection. If so, have one or more bookshelves near your reading nook space. There are many different ways to style bookshelves, such as tall freestanding styles and space-saving shelves hung directly on the wall. It’s not a big deal which shelving you select, take some time to create visually appealing displays of books, keepsakes, and treasured décor items. This will make your bookshelves more personal and help you craft a space where your favorite things surround you.

If natural light is what you are looking for, it’s simple to create a window seat reading nook. This is true even if your St. Charles rental home doesn’t already have a built-in window seat in the house. To create a cozy window seat reading nook, place a storage ottoman, chaise longue, or pile of floor pillows under your favorite window. To dress up the space, even more, put narrow freestanding bookshelves on both sides of the window and a couple of houseplants on the sill. Before long, you will get a sunny and airy window nook perfect for relaxing at home.

Apart from cozy seating, bear in mind to style the walls around your reading nook. For maximum drama, put a large piece of artwork that draws the eye and lends personality to the space. Another good idea to personalize your space is to add a gallery wall. Print and hang a collection of favorite photos, small artworks, or other décor items to achieve the right look and feel. Along these lines, just about any spot in your rental house can become the cozy reading nook you’ve always wanted.

It doesn’t matter how much space you have to work with, by using some of these tips, you can create a reading nook in your St Charles rental house easily – no construction required!
