A Space All Your Own: Windows & Reading Nooks

For busy homeowners looking for a quiet sanctuary right at home, a reading nook can be a wise investment. Because it lacks a technical definition, your reading nook can be any shape and size that you wish. This distinction is important, as it plays into the kind of windows you can match these spaces with!

Private Spaces

Most nooks are small areas often situated in the kitchen or in a corner of a living room or den. The choice of windows in Sacramento, CA, for this kind of nook will depend on the extent of privacy required. Casement windows are an excellent option because they are wide enough to let a lot of light in, yet slim enough that they can be placed a little higher for better privacy.

Public Spaces

For those who don’t desire as much privacy, you can create a cozy reading nook within your living room. This space within a space can be an area you can retreat to when you need a little time to yourself without detracting from the openness of the room. You can achieve this by installing bay or bow windows. These extend outward from your home and can be paired with a cushioned reading area that allows a great view of the outdoors.
