7. Nice nicheNow, here’s a book nook that takes things to the next level. Rather than positioning your child’s dedicated reading area on floor level, take design cues from this cool kids’ zone and carve out a reading loft instead. Your budding bookworms are sure to get a kick out of the elevated hideout, not only because it affords them privacy but because they’ll feel like the king or queen of their castle, too. If I were to make one small tweak to this book nook though, it would be to add recessed shelving to the alcove. This would save youngsters from climbing up and down the ladder every time they finish a book to fetch a new one.
