A reading nook and my own writing space is something that I have wanted for a long time. Since I am living with my grandmother, there is not any place that I can make a reading nook. Well, there is a back bedroom, but that’s the guest bedroom. Not that we get many guests, but it’s a hot box back there year round. Plus when I suggested using it as an office before my grandma wasn’t too crazy about the idea.
Mainly my writing office is in my room. I use a big table that takes up a lot of space because my desk from my parent’s house broke. I planned on getting an actual desk, but then my grandparents got me this huge TV for my room. Which was nice, but it does fill the table. Especially with my printer on there as well.
Hanging it on the wall is out of the question because there are two windows there. I suppose I could move my bed to where the windows are, but the problem with that is there is a radiator there. Even if I turn the radiator off it still radiates heat. Plus we have noisy neighbors on the side where the windows are.
Anyway, I’m rambling on here. Haha. My main point is when I get my own place I’d like to have a reading nook and a writing office. Preferably separate rooms for each, but I’d be happy with having them to same room if I had too.
What am I looking for in a reading nook? I am looking for a room that I can fill with bookshelves. I would also like to have a window seat with a beautiful view. A plush comfy couch and a lazy boy. Maybe a few cool paintings and some book posters.
What am I looking for in a writing space? A good level desk with drawers. A comfy chair that provides excellent back support and comfy. A couple of bookshelves so that books surround me. A drawing board where I can map out ideas. A medium-sized conference table for when I’m editing and need to see the layout of my book right in front of me. A big bay window with a window seat in case I need to take a moment and think. And a lock on the door in case I’m on a deadline or don’t want to be bothered.
Here are some reading nooks and writing spaces that I found to be unique and cozy.
