Creating the Perfect Reading Space

Creating the Perfect Reading Space

Are you an avid reader that simply loves to slip away into your own world with a book in your hand?  If you are serious about reading, then you should probably create a special place to read.  But, if you have a family, finding a space of your own can be difficult.  Luckily, today, we are going to learn a few tips that can help you create the perfect reading space anywhere in your home.

Use Candles to Enhance the Mood

A great way to turn an ordinary room into a peaceful reading environment is by lighting some candles.  Oxford library candles make a perfect addition to any reading area and it can set the mood as well!  This will allow you to bring down the lights but still have enough light to read by. Not only can a candlelight set the mood; many candles have a pleasant smell that can eliminate odors. But, remember to be very careful with candles and only burn them if you are going to be in the room.  Just one candle knocked over can cause major damage to your home and threaten the life of your family.  

A Comfortable Chair

No reading area would be complete without a comfortable chair to relax in.  Depending on your personal style, you can choose from many different styles of chairs.  Some readers may enjoy a plush recliner chair, while others would prefer the warmth that a soft leather chair provides.  But, you don’t have to spend a lot of money when purchasing a chair for your reading area.  There are many places that sell used furniture and you can find a really good deal on a preowned chair.  You can also buy a good-quality used chair from a flea market or garage sale.  Websites like Craigslist are also a good place to find a used chair, but remember to be very careful when dealing with people that you don’t know in person.  There are quite a few scams that happen on these sites, so make sure that you meet in a safe and well-lit area.

A Sturdy Bookshelf

Another must-have piece of furniture that you need for your reading room is a bookshelf.  Bookshelves will give you a place to keep your books safe and organized.  Make sure that the bookshelf you choose is sturdy and large enough for all the books you own.  As a book lover, you probably have a ton of books that need a proper home.  Depending on the layout of your reading area, you can choose from differently shaped bookshelves to maximize your storage capacity.

These are just three of the items that you can add to your reading area to give it more character.  Having a cozy space to read will help you relax and it will give you a place to call your own.  This area doesn’t have to be large.  In fact, you can even set up an amazing reading area inside a walk-in closet.
