    Ten Cozy Reading Nook Ideas

    Reading Nooks Book Nooks #readingnook #farmhouse

    Creating a cozy reading nook is a great way to utilize extra space and create charm in your home at the same time. Whether large or small, a reading nook is a place to escape the stress of every day life and do a little extra dreaming. Just before selling our previous home, we converted an underused coat closet into a beautiful and useable book nook. It became one of our family’s favorite features of the home, but we didn’t get to use it for long. Since we enjoyed it so much I am looking for ways to incorporate a book nook or reading area into our current home. Here are 10 cozy reading nook ideas I am using for inspiration.

With that in mind I started thinking about all the areas that need to be addressed when sprucing up a home’s exterior.

    Increase your home's property value

     

    Hello and welcome back to Home Ownership 101! Today’s topic is home investment. When we talk investments, we usually think about things that have an initial cost that slowly gain value over time. In terms of our homes, this can include big renovations,  and other improvements, design choices that just keep on giving many years into the future. With spring coming, many people are making plans to invest in their homes, but it is important to place priority on those projects that will yield the best return over time, which is most often a new kitchen or bathroom.
