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. (Major Princess and the Pea vibes.)

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.

Make A Window Seat

And curtain it in, so they can “camp out.” A dust ruffle provides a perfect spot to discreetly stow book bins.

Turn A Closet Into A Fort

Tuck bins and books into the upper shelf, build in a low cozy “bunk” for reading and use the lower level for toy time (twinkly lights optional but highly encouraged).

Or Go For a Big Floor Pillow

Assemble a comfy pillow pile on the floor, string a festive pom-pom garland and call it a day.
