Encourage Reading

Today’s selection of patio and deck furniture includes outdoor chaise lounges and daybeds are ideal additions to a reader’s haven. Arranging a comfortable book nook outdoors may be one way to provide a place to foster good reading habits in the younger set.

Literacy experts say that those who read regularly themselves and to their children are most likely to create a love of reading in their kids. When sunny days and a light breeze beckon, reading outside is an enjoyable pastime. Setting up a spot on the patio or deck for book lovers is one way to encourage reading.

Deck Furniture

HomeDesigning.com recommends creating a division that separates a reading niche from the rest of the patio. Place a piece of furniture, such as a free-standing bookcase, perpendicular to a wall to partially enclose the area. To prevent sun or water damage to books in the case, homeowners may consider using one with glass doors or place it under an awning.

To create a good-looking book corner, books should be organized well. They can be arranged alphabetically, by subject or color and with hardcovers separated from paperbacks.
