18 Cosy Corners in Singapore Homes to Curl Up Forever In
Every home needs at least one cosy corner. They are astonishingly multifunctional: great for curling up with a good book, taking a quick nap, hanging out with family, or for just doing nothing in. From lazy lounges to welcoming nooks, we bring you the cosiest of corners in Singapore homes:
1. Take advantage of your generous windows and set up cushioned bay window seats for comfortable lounging. We like the wooden border surrounding this alcove, which helps to define the space.

2. To take the relaxing up a notch, surround your cosy corner with plants, which are known to boost tranquillity. Notice how the entire structure is mounted from the ceiling using thin wooden poles. This see-through and ‘floating’ design lends a light and airy feel to the space, preventing it from looking cluttered.

11. A platform area was carved out from the open-plan living and dining area in this BTO flat to serve as a cosy corner. Furnished with a couple of beanbags and defined by the industrial style spider lights, the space provides the perfect setting for conversations, away from the distraction of the telly.

12. Cosy corners can be crafted for watching television, which was what was done in this bedroom so that the activity won’t disturb sleep. The alcove sits on a slightly raised platform that is clad in a darker wood flooring compared to the rest of the bedroom, which helps to delineate the area.

13. Evoking a sense of serenity and zen, this comfortable daybed features gentle hues and a clean, minimal aesthetic.
14. Fashioned from plywood, this pared-back reading nook comes with open shelving at the sides for storage and tomes.

15. This cosy corner sits by the entrance of the home, functioning as more than a lounge area. A shelving unit sits at the side as a catchall tray for keys and other knick-knacks, while a thin rod hangs above to collect various accessories.

16. Here’s a dream alcove for bibliophiles. Lots and lots of storage for books surround a cushioned bay window area, perfect for whiling the afternoons away whilst reading.
17. Who says a cosy corner can’t be in a kitchen? Here, a built-in bench at the end of the cooking space works as a relaxing spot for breakfast while the homeowner catches up on his email.
18. This cosy corner sits literally at the corner of the living room, serving as a less formal area for lounging and relaxing. Featuring underneath storage, it’s built around the flat’s structural column, helping to camouflage the pillar.
