Being on lockdown does not need to be boring… While reading is a great way of keeping your mind off some unpleasant things, you can jazz up the experience by transforming some rooms of the house into even more comfortable ones! Play around with some materials you already have at hand and set up a cosy corner as per your preferences.
Here are our best ideas for your personalised reading corners, whereby you can enjoy a good book, watch funny videos, write your memoirs, or just keep up with the news.
Make your baby dream
Why not set up a small reading corner in your child’s room? You may enhance the warm and relaxing atmosphere with the help of soft lights, stuffed animals, cushions and his/her favourite toys.
A teepee for indoor adventures
You don’t have a teepee? Don’t worry! It is very easy to make, using a few pieces of wood or bamboo, twine or rope, and some fabric you have at home.
A little ray of sunshine in your life
The confinement can be depressing at times… Fortunately, you can recharge your batteries with natural light! Set up your reading corner under or near a window, and you shall brighten up your days with some vitamin D.
Indoor bucolic surroundings…
In a corner, far from the back and forth movements of the house, bring your favourite plants and flowers, add some cushions and throws, and create an intimate and peaceful space.
Adding some peps
Revamping the living room
Have you ever thought of altering your living room? Revamp this convivial space where the family can gather. Indeed, with the help of a mat, demarcate the space of your reading corner. Then, above all, cushions galore! With your favourite books on the floor, everyone can lie down and enjoy a good read. Illuminate the space, with lamps, or even garlands and candles. You can choose to have an armchair and a lamp next to it, for an even more comfortable reading corner.
A cosy library
Give your office or library a more relaxed look with pouffes, mattresses, futons and other accessories.
And the balcony revives
It’s up to you now and you can be as inventive as you want. Build your little bubble filled with fictional or historical characters for optimised reading.
