Reading nooks need plenty of light provided with solar screen shades
Dec 8 2010
As winter sets in, thoughts of setting up a cozy corner for reading and relaxation arise. There are only four ingredients for an ideal reading nook - comfortable seating with back support, good lighting, a nearby bookcase and a place to set down a snack or cup of tea.
A reading nook with good light and a comfortable chair can be a spot for relaxation in the home.
According to ApartmentRatings.com, a nook can be set up in any room where it will be comfortable for the reader. Task lighting from a table lamp, wall sconce or floor lamp is needed for a bright light to focus on the reading material.
A small bookcase will provide a space for favorite books or a stack of magazines and it can also do double duty as a place to set down a beverage, a clock and a table lamp.
Many people move an upholstered chair or recliner next to a window to take advantage of natural light for day reading. Solar screen shades are a good choice for a reading nook because they can eliminate the glare of sunlight, but allow natural daylight to filter into the home. They come in a variety of colors and finishes to match any home decorating scheme.
