Roman shades provide an attractive window covering for a reading nook
Apr 28 2011
A reading nook for lazy weekend afternoons and relaxing before-bed reads can be set up in the corner of a room with a minimum of fuss.
A specific area of the home can be set aside for comfortable reading.
Re-arranging furniture in a room helps designate a specific spot as the nook. It can be an alcove, an unused closet or a small section of a room, according to ApartmentTherapy.com.
A comfortable chair and a side table to set down books, a snack, a clock and a lamp. A bookcase will provide a place for favorite books or a stack of magazines and it can also do double duty as a place to set things down instead of a table.
If located near a window, natural light will be available to read by during day hours. Task lighting from a table lamp, wall sconce or floor lamp is needed for nighttime reading, the website states.
The best window covering for a reading area is one that will allow the reader to manage the light easily. Available in a range of fabrics and colors, roman shades are stylish window treatments that have a softer look that works best in a residential setting. Light-filtering roman shades allow natural light to permeate a room without giving up privacy.
