Creating a Cozy Reading Nook in Your Boise Rental

Woman Relaxing in Her Boise Reading NookFor book lovers, there is nothing better than a comfortable, cozy reading nook. Even if you are renting your house, you can surely achieve the space you want. There are various choices that Boise renters like you can do to 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 acquire the perfect reading nook, an excellent approach 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.

Probably the most efficient way 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, aim for a chair that invites you to sink into it and stay awhile. Place 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 this is the case, install one or more bookshelves in your reading nook space. There are many creative ways to style bookshelves, like tall freestanding styles or space-saving shelves hung directly on the wall. It doesn’t matter which shelving you choose, 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 you aim for natural light, it’s easy to create a window seat reading nook. This is true even if your Boise 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, place narrow freestanding bookshelves on both parts of the window and some houseplants on the sill. In a little while, you will get a bright and airy window nook perfect for relaxing at home.

Besides comfortable seating, it is essential 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 smart option 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 get the perfect 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 utilizing any of these ideas, it is possible to create a reading nook in your Boise rental house easily – no construction required!
