25 Tricks to Make Your Bedroom Feel Extracozy

Guest Room DIY Decor

Reading Nook or Guest Room? It Can Be Both!

If you have a tiny room in your house that can't fit much besides a bed, you might want to consider transforming it into a cozy reading nook. Sounds relaxing, right? Layla and her handy husband, Kevin, from The Lettered Cottage, decided it was the best use of space for this cramped 6-by-6 room in their house — but they didn't stop there!

They crafted a DIY daybed that serves as a reading spot by day and a crash pad by night. Adding a sconce and a small demi-table as a night stand also helped to provide a bedroom vibe without taking up precious space. We love how the baskets in the cubbies can stash anything from board games to toiletries, depending on whether or not they have an overnight guest.
