A well-placed window seat can make any room in your home more inviting. It offers you – and even guests – a great new place to sit down while enjoying a gorgeous view or natural lighting. With a few drawers or hidden compartments underneath for more storage space, they can even become cozier nooks where you can snuggle up with a good book.
Here are some other ideas you should consider.
A Day Bed in the Attic
To add more living space to your home, clean out your attic. Make the new space more inviting with a day bed in front of the window. A collection of potted trees and plants will add a calming feel to the room.
Create a book nook in a deep but narrow dormer window for one adult to cozy up with a favorite read. Place a heating vent under the bench to keep the occupant warm and toasty during chilly weather. Hang two sconces above to keep things illuminated at night. One must-have accessory for a window seat like this one is a small throw.
There is no need to fight for the best seat in a basement playroom. Place a cozy bunk-style window seat against each window for reading and napping. The drawer storage underneath each provides space to stash toys and books. Make the room feel like a cabin on a ship with brass porthole mirrors and ocean waves inspired wallpaper.
Living Room Window Bench Seat
Pair a bench window seat with the built-in bookshelves in your living room. Add visual interest with metal grille fronts on the drawers underneath the seat. Include two small wall sconces with linen shades to add light whenever needed. Complete the window seat with decorative pillows.
