Take your child’s inner nerd outside and create a special place for them to get lost in their favorite stories. When thinking about how to create the best reading corner for your child, you need to focus on a few key points, namely soft and comfortable seats and reading lights.

When it comes to sitting down, you can choose from different options, whether it’s a mom or dad chair big enough for you to snuggle. If you’re a fan of mid-century design, you can choose between a full-size and a mini version of the same Eames rocking chair, because who doesn’t love a mini version of anything? If you want a cushion that can hold a few kids for the average children’s book club, choose bean bags, floor mats, and bean bag chairs.

find the right place

A reading nook doesn’t have to take up much space in a kid’s room. It’s okay to find a quiet place away from distractions (like the TV), but keep your parents focused so they can join in reading when they need to.

be a good person

Seating is a must, whether it’s a comfy chair, a fitted sleeping bag or a comfy pillow and rug on the floor. Make sure the space is open and bright: If you don’t have windows or plenty of natural light, add lights so kids don’t have to read pages on dark days or after dark.

Choose child-friendly storage

An adequate supply of books is the most important ingredient and a place to store books. Make sure the books are within reach (not too high or piled in towering piles) so that the little ones can grab them and walk away, hoping to put them back when they’re done. For pre-readers, it’s a good idea to display picture books with their covers facing out, if possible, so younger children can recognize at a glance the book they’re looking for.
