Is there anything more comforting than a cozy reading nook? Even just browsing through photos of these sweet setups makes us instantly feel calmer. To aid in creating our very own reading nooks, we'll be stealing the following ideas from Instagram.

5. Consider corner-specific seating.
6. Use the rule of four.
In quite a few #readingnook photos, we've noticed that many people have the following four items: a seating area, a small table, a plant, and a light source. This is perfectly demonstrated in the above nook created by @michoneharris.
7. Transform a closet.
One of our favorite reading nook trends on Instagram has to do with closets. Essentially, bookworms like @no7renovate are taking the doors off their closets so they can turn them into reading nooks. As you can see in the above photo, even a small closet will do.
