How to set up a reading corner

Creating an ambient for reading can bring benefits to the routine. After all, reading is a quite healthy habit, and it brings numerous benefits to our daily life. It stimulates creativity, improves concentration, expands vocabulary and writing skills and, on top of that, it has the power to transport the reader to another universe.

It’s not surprising to know people are creating environments to relax at home. We do need a space to relax. A corner or a room where you will forget the day-to-day shenanigans.

A reading corner can be done anywhere in the house without needing much change. Check out the tips and enjoy!

It doesn’t matter if you are thinking bedroom, a balcony or just a tiny space in the living room. The most important idea to follow here is that your reading corner will be cosier and comfy.

Think about accessories like ottomans to support the feet, blankets, and pillows. If you can’t find this corner, you still can find a perfect solution thinking about a solution is to distribute futons or pallets on the floor for the moments. Pillow, a suitable lamp on a small table will do the trick too. The ideal is to find a quiet, comfortable, and light place.

Essential Items

I remember thinking about hygge corners in the house as the ultimate interior project to go for a couple of years ago. That was trendy. And it probably is still now, for a simple reason – the accessories and items that transform your home.

It’s always worth remembering that it’s good to use creativity and what you already have at home. Sometimes it means that a key piece such as a sofa, a chair, or an armchair that were forgotten but now they fit perfectly in the space.

Be patient when choosing the key pieces, checking which is the most comfortable option, so you will avoid future problems such as back pain. Remember you are looking for a comfortable place to read with peace of mind.

Another essential furniture piece would be some support for the books, it can be a bookcase, a magazine rack, or even a bedside table to accommodate all the things you need. Get creative and make it happens!

The Perfect Lighting

Lighting is essential to create a nice environment at any room of your home, so why it would be the same when it comes to the reading corner? This ideal lighting can be perfected through a good lamp, pendant, or lampshade.

Natural lighting would be the perfect match in this case. It is clean, efficient and eco-friendly. But if you have no options, the yellow lamps are the most suitable for this moment. That’s why it’s worth planning your little corner on the porch or in the garden, so you’ll be able to enjoy natural lighting and, on top of that, observe nature.

Play With Décor

Décor can change the mood of any room in your home. How about using your creativity investing in a good decoration when it also comes to the reading corner? The reading corner is your safe place at home, a place of refuge for us, whether to read, have a cup of coffee, or even to rest.

Therefore, with little furniture and objects, we were able to give it a new character. You can place a shelf with little plants, or distribute them on pendants, or simply choose some pictures you like and put on the walls. Even small accessories are welcome.

Ideas on How to Decorate a Dining Table

Who does not love a dining table?

It is certainly one piece that I would spend a lot of time choosing the best model for my future home.  But I also know that choosing the best dining table can be a tricky thing.

Depending on the space we have, you can invest in a dining table that will be functional and not only a piece of decoration. A table that will be compliment the style of any room in your house and draw anyone’s attention.

On the other hand,if we have a somewhat more functional and less elegant dining table, this article is the ideal one for you. 

We are going to show you the best tricks to decorate it and that it remains a totally unbeatable result.

Rectangular Table

Here is my favourite type of table. Do not ask me why, but when I think about a perfect dining table, everything that comes to my mind is an elegant and rustic wooden rectangular table that can be functional and placed as a decorative piece as well.

You can make multiple combinations that fit well your style and space. Or simply mix elements such as a vase and some books, or some candles and ornamental figures.

Symmetrical Tables

Here is for the trendy ones. The symmetric tables are perfect adding to small spaces. You can place a vase in the centre or at one end of the dining table.

You can opt for a simple or rather minimalist design, or choose one made of a material that best matches the table. The idea is always adding a wow factor to the table.

Round Tables

We usually see round tables as a less functional one because of its size and shape. You will not need to fill them to make them totally elegant and with a personal style.

You will do the opposite. In fact, the trick is not to overload them. But use ornaments in a clever way to bring a minimalistic style to this.

You just need some flowers to give it some colour. Or you can always use smaller pieces to give it an elegant touch to it.

Other Ideas

You do not need to rely on the shape of your table to choose the best decoration. Just let your imagination runs wild, giving your personal touch to it.

You can always DIY your table adding different colours, textures, and features to it.

Glassware and trays are another quite popular options that will bring some life a more decorative elements to your table.  

Plants are also a timeless decorative and creative feature. But if you have cats, like I do, it will be a bit trick to keep them far from it. Plants gives any dining table luminosity, freshness, joy, and vitality. It is like having a touch of nature in your room.

And I am happy to know that the industrial style become a trend for 2021 and it will be also a trend next year. Not only for it’s modern touch, also because it prioritizes the use of materials. This type of style make it possible to reuse the elements that are featured in the structure of the house such as concrete, wood, and other raw materials.

Plants, we need them outdoors and indoors as well. Bringing nature indoors is a perfect way to make make your rooms stand out. It makes the spaces more pleasurable.

But it doesn’t need to be only featured in natural plants. You can always use those elements in fabrics and decorative objects made with natural elements, for example.
