Reading nooks are the ideal way to turn a corner of your home into a refuge and sanctuary for enjoying a good book or magazine. While the location is important, inspiring lighting to make you enjoy your reading nook is even more important. Lighting can make the difference in you staying for 5 minutes, or lingering until you finish just one more chapter.
Even though you feel like you have enough light in your reading nook, make sure you have at least 2 lighting sources – and one of them should be a natural light source. This enables your nook to be used at multiple times of the day for reading, but also for relaxing, taking a look outside, and even daydreaming. A second lighting source can be a lamp, an overhead light, or a wall sconce. Sit in your reading nook at varying times of day to assess what type of lighting you are lacking.
