Refurbish Furniture Pieces

A reading nook is a small area, and it may appear difficult to transform the space without making any major changes.

Identify a theme you would want to see in your reading nook, and center your main furniture pieces on this theme. For example, staining naked wood with varnish for a rustic aesthetic.

Incorporate Pillows

You can then get creative with the pillowcases to achieve a stylish finish on your reading chair.

Succulents and Artificial Plants

Plants have a way of generating a peaceful aura wherever they are placed or where they grow. Small plants on your bookshelf or your reading table offer simplicity and beauty without occupying a lot of space if you have one. The hint of green delivered by these small plants creates a balance as it is decorative in a not so obvious manner. Small plants are a more natural way of decorating as opposed to purchasing knickknacks.

Use Lamps

Lamps are timeless and classic décor pieces that have been used over the years to bring elegance and sophistication to a place. They are particularly beneficial in a reading nook as they are decorative and provide extra light when it’s dark, ideal for reading. If you have any lamps lying around the house, whether it is a big standing lamp or smaller tabletop lamps, consider moving them to your study nook for instant improvement on how your space looks and feels.
