5 Cozy Nook Ideas You'll Crave

We all crave a cozy spot in our home to relax and unwind from the hustle and bustle of life. Here are five perfect ideas for carving out a comfortable space in your home to sip on a cup of tea, take a catnap, or read a good book!

Window treatments

Create a cozy at-home getaway with a window seat reading nook that showcases a beautiful view. Add seating made from built-in drawers to store your books and throw blankets. A padded cushion and a few fluffy pillows create a cozy spot for rest and relaxation.

The Loft Nook


Make over your attic space or a storage room above the garage into a dreamy loft. Use a platform bed instead of a bed frame to fit this narrow spot. Built-in cubbies for baskets add handy storage for extra throws and books. Add sconce lighting or battery-operated string lights for a cozy glow!

Corner Reading Nook


Any empty corner in a spare room is just begging to be turned into a cozy reading nook! Add a comfortable upholstered armchair and ottoman, a floor lamp for task lighting, and a fringed throw for warmth on those cool evenings. Consider adding an area rug to keep things warm underfoot. Hanging small pieces of art low on the corner wall will also amp up the cozy factor. Need a spot to rest a cup of tea? Add a small chest of drawers or end table to your corner reading nook!

Add Textiles and Shelves

Small living room

The living room is one of the most-used rooms in your home. Make it cozy by adding textiles and shelving for books and decorative objects. An upholstered ottoman in a color and print you love will give your living room warmth and texture, plus it's perfect for propping up your feet. Displaying your favorite books and collections from your travels will fill your room with treasured memories.

Dreamy Makeup Vanity

Beautifully Blended

If your bathroom doesn't have a built-in makeup vanity, add one to your bedroom using a small table. Scour vintage and antiques stores for a small vanity table and add an upholstered chair in a beautiful pattern. Make it a cozy beauty zone by adding a small vase of flowers, art, and a lighted makeup mirror.
