Built-In Book Nook
Open a new chapter in the story of your home with this stylish built-in window seat and bookcase in a just couple of weekends.
The project starts with a broad bench seat that offers a comfortable place to relax while you read under the built-in puck lights overhead. Underneath, you’ll find a serious amount of storage space. Two tall bookcases that flank the bench are the perfect place for books or for displaying your favorite collectibles. The transformation this project brings to the style and feel of a room is nothing less than astonishing. No less amazing is that the project is easy to build, a breeze to install, and remarkably affordable. This plan will show you how to plan and build a book nook to fit your space.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
