Anyone else miss the good ole days when kids read books instead of plastering iPad’s with emojis? While leading by example (ahem) is the best way to encourage, we’re positing that a rad kids-only reading hideaway will work wonders, too. Take inspiration from the amazing nugget nooks below, and consider a weekend DIY project with your mini-me.
Hang A Swing
In a corner alongside a table or bookshelf. Then fill it with cozy cushions, shearling hides and furry friends.
Try A Stack Of Bedrolls
That your kids can pull down and spread out on. Then move your books collection to cute canvas baskets.
Use Your Bunk Bed
Try a criss-cross bunks arrangement, and fill the space next to the “1st floor” bed with cozy textiles and wall-mount bookshelves.
Build A Bench Into Your Bookshelves
If going custom is an option. (A cozy chair or settee placed just below the bookshelf works just as well.)
Suspend A Tent
A hanging canopy + beanbags tucked into a corner = the perfect reading hideaway.
