Creating a Cozy Reading Nook in Your Richland Rental

Woman Relaxing in Her Richland Reading NookFor book lovers, there is nothing better than a comfortable, cozy reading nook. Even though you are renting your house, you can still achieve the space you want. There are several methods that Richland renters like you can create a cozy reading nook in your home without making any permanent changes. By utilizing the right elements and a little creativity, you can establish a reading nook that invites total relaxation.

To build the perfect reading nook, the ideal place to start is with the things that help you feel comfortable. Maybe it’s an oversized chair, some plush throw pillows, or your favorite throw blanket. Or, possibly, you enjoy having pictures, flowers, or houseplants around you, bringing 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 fastest 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, get a chair that invites you to sink into it and stay awhile. Place a floor lamp and a favorite throw, and you’re gear up for long afternoons deep in a great book.

For others, no reading nook would be complete with close access to your prized book collection. If so, include one or more bookshelves to your reading nook space. There are many options to style bookshelves, from tall freestanding styles to space-saving shelves hung directly on the wall. Irrespective of which shelving you prefer, it is necessary 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 like, you can easily create a window seat reading nook. This is possible even though your Richland 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 two sides of the window and some houseplants on the sill. In a short time, you will have a bright and airy window nook perfect for relaxing at home.

Together with comfy seating, it is also essential to style the walls around your reading nook. For maximum drama, include a large piece of artwork that draws the eye and lends personality to the space. Another effective means to personalize your space is to include a gallery wall. Print and hang a collection of favorite photos, small artworks, or other décor items to develop the overall appearance. In this fashion, just about any spot in your rental house can become the cozy reading nook you’ve always wanted.

Irrespective of how much space you have to work with, by taking these steps, you can create a reading nook in your Richland rental house easily – no construction required! Would you like to know more ways to personalize your rental home? Call us at 509-572-5440 or contact us online today!
