Build a Book Nook

Dr Seuss Quote 2

Crawling into a cosy book nook could be just what your little ones need to inspire a love of reading. There are some wonderful creations out there which alas, require either a natural talent for carpentry or a recent lottery win! I’ve therefore deliberately picked those which appealed to me for their simplicity and as something many of us could possibly entertain doing ourselves opposed to just mentally adding them to our dream home. So get searching for any unused tiny spaces in your house then crawl in, climb up or sit down and enjoy these pictures to help jolt the creative ideas in you.

Is there a cosy spot to light up under your stairs?

Perhaps there’s room for a reading shelter in the attic?
