I think we can all agree that on a rainy day there’s nothing better than snuggling up with a cup of tea and a good book. The only thing that could enhance such a delightful experience is having a dedicated reading nook specifically designed for ultimate comfort. Read our Ellecor blog to find out what you need to create the perfect reading nook!
A Comfy Chair
You can’t have a reading nook without a plush chair. Find a chair that’s comfortable but still provides good support. Choose colors that will be calming to you and facilitate rest and relaxation.

Lots of Cozy Blankets
Of course, you’ll want to have some cozy blankets at your disposal for chilly days. A blanket can be a great way to add a pop of color to the space. If your chair is a neutral color, choose a brightly colored blanket that’ll add both color and texture to the space.
Really Good Lighting
To fully enjoy your reading nook, you need to have good lighting so you don’t strain your eyes. If you can, place your reading nook next to a window to provide natural reading light. Also, make sure you have a lamp on hand for those dark winter days or night time reading. Make sure that it’s a soft, warm light that isn’t hard on your eyes.

Someplace to Put Your Drink
You’ll need someplace to put your tea while you read. A small end table should suit your purposes fine. An end table is another great way to add a pop of color. Don’t forget to have some coasters handy!
Someplace to Put Your Feet
Place an ottoman near your comfy chair so you can prop your feet up while you read. There are a lot of options when it comes to ottomans. We suggest choosing one that’s cushioned to provide yourself with the utmost comfort while you read.
Don’t Forget the Bookshelf
If you have space, put a bookshelf near your reading nook. That way you can have all your favorite tales handy for when you sit down to read. Keep the shelves stocked with old favorites and books that are on your “must-read” list!
