Seating Selection For Cozy Small Spaces
For a cozy nook space select furniture that is plush, has upholstered arms and a cushioned back.
Or if it’s a bench nook – add a thick bench cushion.
Cozy Small Spaces Need Pillows and Throws
Add comfort with lots of pillows and throw blankets.
These will provide warmth to cuddle up with and also visual interest, style and texture!
The Corner Nook
Create a cozy nook in an empty corner of a room.
This is a great use of space in a living room or bedroom.
Add a chair with an ottoman, ambient lighting with a table lamp, floor lamp or sconce and a side table to hold a snack or a drink.
Add a few small bookshelves or floating shelves to hold books and display decor!

Hang art in the nook area to add pattern color and style.
Window Seat Nook
A window seat is the perfect spot to create a cozy nook!
Perfect for naps, a cup of coffee, admiring nature or reading.
Make sure there is a plush seat cushion to sit on and window treatments to lower to block the sun.
A window seat nook is a gorgeous design idea for a bedroom!
Not only is it a great use of space but it also provides a spot to sit and change as well as a spot to unwind with a cup of tea or glass of wine!
Loft Alcove Bed Nook
If you have an attic space , loft or a room with a low peaked ceiling, create a bed nook!
This is a cozy location for a spot to nap and read!
Layer in soft bedding and add a sconce or two for reading.
Remove the doors of a closet and you instantly have a cozy nook for reading and napping!
Add a floor cushion or add a bench with storage.
I love this kids’ bedroom cozy nook! So fun and adorable!
Add a few shelves on one end, some art and a beautiful ceiling light creates a zen, tranquil seating area.
I love this green wall color that draws your eye in and makes the nook look and feel even cozier!
My favorite green paint colors are:
- Sherwin Williams Evergreen Fog
- Sherwin Williams Acacia Haze
- Clare Paint Current Mood
- Behr Back To Nature Paint Color
Design tip: use Samplize Peel & Stick paint samples to test colors in your home.
You can easily move them around your room, it’s mess free and delivered right to your front door!
Under The Staircase Nook
Creating a nook under a staircase is a great use of space that’s hidden behind the wall!
This is brilliant.
Open it up and add a bench or builtin with storage to add versatility to the staircase area.
