Do you have room renovation envy but not the reality TV renovation show budget?  Use bean bags to quickly and easily change up a room whilst staying super practical and super affordable!

Who doesn’t love a dedicated time out space for reading (or mindless scrolling) and relaxing that also looks fabulous?! Add a bean bag to the bookshelf in the corner of the room and voila! instant reading nook.

We’ve scoured the internet and found a few of our favorite bean bag reading nook ideas.

not just for reading…

your cosy corner can be multipurpose, use it for:

  • Listening to music,
  • Journaling,
  • Crosswords, Sudoku etc.,
  • Snoozing,
  • Gaming,
  • Watching movies,
  • Catching up on TV/Netflix/Stan
  • And of course reading books, magazines &, kindles

We love this simple grey setup by Jeanne Oliver for her teen.

Grey walls, grey shelves and grey bean bag = super zen.

You could recreate this look with our grey linen look classic tear drop shaped bean bag:

This sweet setup pairs the print curtain with a complementary colored bean bag.  Add in a matching colored storage containers, a floral cushion in similar colors and a rug to complete the look.  Thanks Susan Aumann
You could recreate this look with:
  • our mint green velvet tear drop shape bean bag
  • some storage cubes (from Bunnings)
  • curtain fabric (from Spotlight)
  • and a floor rug (from Kmart)

I would battle the kids to sit in this super hero nook!
A classic tear drop bean bag, geometric wallpaper and some super cute prints with contrasting frames to match the shelving.

No Bookshelf?
No worries!

Ditch the bookshelf in this idea from real simple dot com’s corner room makeovers: grab a bean bag, wall sconce, tiny work of art, a low table and a pile of books – so simple!

COSY: giving a feeling of comfort, warmth, and relaxation

Not just for kids…
For a little more sophistication (although I can’t go past the super hero’s inspo!) use a luna or coastal lounge shaped bean bag for more structure,

or recreate this look with a pot plant and one of our faux fur bean bags.
