Creating that Perfect Reading Nook

Just how popular are outdoor living spaces in the United States? According to’s Home Improvement survey, about 67 percent of U.S. consumers are aiming for remodeling come springtime, which will include patio additions and enhancements.

If you already have an existing patio, all you have to do to breathe new life into it is to get new furniture. Your choice of furniture depends on what your outdoor living space is most used for.

For instance, if your patio is mostly a nook for you and your family to read bestsellers, you’ll enjoy furniture made from bamboo or rattan. These materials are malleable so the pieces are made with slight curves, which are perfect for lounging and relaxing. For optimum comfort, cushions with ultra-soft pillow inserts are recommended for your new furniture. A good option is durable inserts made from 100 percent spun polyester.

Your selection for the cushions’ design also plays a big role in completing the look of your reading corner. Cushions with dainty paisley designs will feel just right, as well as cushions with colorful geometric prints.

A reminder when choosing fabric for your cushions: check to see if they are made from a fabric that can withstand the elements. A good choice is Bella Dura. This fabric is anti-microbial and does a good job of keeping mildew and stains away. What’s more, it’s soft to the skin so you wouldn’t mind staying outdoors all day to finish an entire book.
