The ABC's of Using Your Night Nook

Updated: Dec 2, 2020

As we await our inevitable Shark Tank appearance, we wanted to give a quick rundown of what you can expect from your Night Nook including what it does, how it works, and some best practices for using it:

Shark Tank


What does it do?

Let’s start at the beginning. The Night Nook was designed for the night owl who wants to enjoy some quality time in bed with their partner, without having to compromise on their sleep schedule. Ideal for those that want to cozy up with a good book, the Night Nook makes it possible to read in bed without disturbing your sleeping partner.

How to Use It:

When you’re ready to use your Night Nook, simply open up the legs on each side until they are at your desired angle. Then just get nice and comfy and place the Night Nook in the preferred position, and you’re ready to go!

How does it Work:

By attaching a light-blocking fabric to its interior frame, the Night Nook creates a comfortable and spacious area for the user to partake in their favorite after-dark activities. The fabric drapes loosely over the sides, giving it an open and airy feeling and allowing each side to be opened and closed as desired.

How to Store It:

When it comes time for daily storage, simply fold the two sides inwards and your Night Nook will fold completely flat, ready to be stored out of sight. This was designed with the spatially challenged NYC apartment in mind, making it ideal for keeping under your bed, in your closet, next to your nightstand, or just about any other nook or cranny you can find.

What kind of Assembly is required?

Good news for the millennials who have never picked up a hammer before, the Night Nook comes ready for use with no assembly required. Just pop open the box and you’re ready to go!


What can you do in your Night Nook?

Just about anything you would normally want to do at night… and that’s the whole point. This is was designed for reading in bed, but it can do so much more. We’ve seen it used for anything from drawing to snacking to knitting, and everything in between!

Where to Use It:

Though initially intended to be used in bed, the Night Nook is useful in any dimly lit environment that you’re sharing with another person. Other applicable situations include:

  • Studying at a desk while your roommate is sleeping (i.e. college students)

  • Passengers to use during a nighttime car/plane ride

  • For parents that are sharing a room with a young child that is sleeping

When to Use It:

If it wasn’t obvious by now, this whole thing is based around giving you the freedom to enjoy lying alongside your partner in bed, without waking them up! Developed to be used just before bed, the Night Nook is also incredibly useful for those times when you wake up in the middle of the night and just can’t seem to fall back asleep. Sleep experts suggest that after 20 minutes of unsuccessfully trying to fall asleep you should engage in an activity such as reading that will relax your mind, as continuing to stress about sleep can lead to chronic insomnia. This previously required you to get up and go to another room, but thanks to the Night Nook you can now read from the comfort of your bed.

At the end of the day, this is all about addressing the fact that although most couples naturally have independent sleep schedules, they shouldn’t have to sacrifice getting to spend time in bed together.
