Are you craving a space that is all your own, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life?

Perhaps having a comfortable corner where you can curl up with a cup of tea and an addictive read is the stuff that your dreams are made of.

If you don’t have enough space in your home to claim a room as your own, there may still be a great solution for you.

In this post, uncover four creative ways in which you can build out a little nook that is all your own, without giving up any of your current living space.


Stair Into Space

Whittle a cozy book nook out of the wasted space under your staircase.

Play all the Angles

Angled ceilings and walls can be a nuisance. Play them to your advantage. Transform them into the coziest of reading nooks.

Hallway to Heaven

Hallways that stretch endlessly from one end of your house to the other can make you feel closed in.
Open them up with a quaint little corner just for you.

Cut it Out!

If you want to dedicate a corner of your room to the activity of reading but you just don’t have the space, consider cutting that space right out of your wall. And while you’re at it, why not get creative with the shape of your cut out?

Build in the Space

Consider a built-in reading nook as another great option, with the added benefit of extra storage and integrated lighting.
