So we created this space that that we wanted to have as a get away to read a book, play a game, take a nap or catch a movie. It is a built in alcove in the upstairs hallway that overlooks the entryway. My problem was that I had too many ideas for this space once it was done, I really started leaning towards a library nook rather than a hangout nook. Now I’m not opposed to doing a library at a later time because I also think that would loo awesome in this space, but for now I went with what we initially created this space to be which was a reading/hangout nook (especially for our grandkids) …. I mean who doesn’t want a sofa bed in a loft area with window opposite to watch the rain, snow or sun! (Shopping deets at the bottom of the page)
This space initially came about because we had a room in our rental house were we converted a twin bed into a daybed and used it a lot to watch tv, read and/or nap (pic below). We used that room so much that I asked if we could carve out some space in the upstairs of our new home to have a similar space and my fabulous husband made it happen!
