Nook - I have a converted closet that I would like to create like this. Do you have any suggestions how I can place the seat in my nook?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Off the Beaten Path: Delightful Alcove Spaces
Found space in an upstairs hallway now serves as a cozy reading and napping nook.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Cuddly Nooks for Every Room
Do you have a double-door closet in your upstairs hallway? Turn it into a reading area. Loft areas and open hallways also work well as small library spaces.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Kid Spaces: Making Room for the Brood
Alcoves. Once upon a time, your charming hallway nook may have been your very own reading spot. However, it may be time to hand it over to the kids. Swap out your novels and back issues of Vogue for picture books; giving them a comfortable place to relax will also encourage them to read. You can always sneak back in for a relaxing glass of wine after bedtime.

this is just a nook - but we might end up with a nook instead of a book shelf, can the nook be large enough for a sleep over guest?
