Nooks are those cozy little spaces where our secrets are kept; the small pockets within our homes. While their odd-shape attributes may pose a bit of puzzlement as to what to do with location, the quirky area can be a featured place in your home.
Perhaps the traditional use of a nook is that of the breakfast nook. Many of these small kitchen spaces are transformed with a built in table and benches for informal meals. The nook helps create a sense of closeness; bringing family and friends physically and- consequentially- emotionally together.
Bar Nooks have become another common option. Many times a micro-bar, the small space allows for the festivities without an overwhelming presence. Particularly when your hosting area is a distance from your kitchen, this can be a lifesaver.
Like cozying up under the covers as you begin an adventure in a new book, reading nooks too can provide a cave of warmth and the right atmosphere. The space can be fitted with a long bench chair that extends the length of the space; giving the reader the ability to lean up against each of the walls. Another option could be a hanging chair; providing a whimsical alternative.
As many of us can attest, during the period of the great COVID shutdown, finding an optimal office space seemed a tough task. With the new craziness of home life, finding a location off on its own was a necessity. Nooks can provide this; they tend to be those places tucked into the unexpected away from the insanity of the rest of the house.
Whether sitting for intimate conversations between a few or for a sole adventurer, nooks are great for seating areas. Often paired with a window, nooks provide a space to watch the happenings outside or to watch the memories being made within. A small table can also be added to the space to make it more versatile.
