Before the word most commonly referred to specific brand of e-readers, a nook was known simply as a recessed or hidden away space in homes that was known for its comfort, seclusion, and security.

Whether your home’s nook is used by your family for eating breakfast, reading a good book, or just kicking back and relaxing after a long day, it’s important to make sure it is free from distractions, irritations, and annoyances—including temperature changes, outside noises, and unwanted light (or a lack thereof, depending on your preferences).

As with every room in your home, the lighting in your favorite nook can play a major role in how you feel when you enter that space. If the lighting is easily controlled at all times of day, you can easily feel energized and revitalized in the morning or relaxed and calm in the evening. The easiest way to accomplish that is by installing the right blinds or shades in your nook.
