Creating a Cozy Reading Nook in Your Cedar Park Rental

Woman Relaxing in Her Cedar Park Reading NookFor book lovers, there is nothing better than a comfortable, cozy reading nook. Even though you are renting your house, you can always achieve the space you want. There are plenty of ways that Cedar Park 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 set up a reading nook that invites total relaxation.

To create the perfect reading nook, the best way 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, perhaps you enjoy having pictures, flowers, or houseplants around you, providing an element of color and natural beauty to your indoor spaces. Regardless of what things make you feel calm and happy, create your reading nook by bringing these things into the space.

One of the best approaches to create a reading nook is to add a comfortable chair to a peaceful corner of your favorite room. Even though your style calls for overstuffed upholstery, classic leather, or clean modern, choose a chair that invites you to sink into it and stay awhile. Put a floor lamp and a favorite throw, and you’re prepared 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 that is the scenario, provide one or more bookshelves in your reading nook space. There are several choices to style bookshelves, from tall freestanding styles to space-saving shelves hung directly on the wall. Irrespective of which shelving you prefer, take some effort to create visually appealing displays of books, keepsakes, and treasured décor items. This will make your bookshelves more personal and encourage you to stay in a space where your favorite things surround you.

If you enjoy natural light, you can quickly create a window seat reading nook. This is real even though your Cedar Park rental home doesn’t already contain 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 each side of the window and one or more houseplants on the sill. Eventually, you will have a light and breezy window nook perfect for relaxing at home.

Apart from suitable seating, it is also imperative to style the walls around your reading nook. For maximum drama, provide a large piece of artwork that draws the eye and lends personality to the space. Another easy way to personalize your space is to have a gallery wall. Print and hang a collection of favorite photos, small artworks, or other décor items to achieve the desired ambiance. In this way, just about any spot in your rental house can become the cozy reading nook you’ve always wanted.

No matter how much space you have to work with, with these steps, you can create a reading nook in your Cedar Park rental house easily – no construction required! Would you like to know more ways to personalize your rental home? Call us at 512-806-0606 or contact us online today!
