At Renewal by Andersen® of Kentucky, your trusted window company, we install bay and bow windows that create the perfect space to install a window seat. They provide cozy niches that can enhance the functionality of the rooms they serve. To maximize the potential of your window seats, consider these tips:
Mimic Existing Cabinetry
Emulating the style of existing woodwork is an effective way to make your window seat blend in with your home and not seem like an afterthought. Unless you deliberately want to make your window seat stand out, designing it in a way that meshes with the other components of your living space is a great idea.
Frame with Open Shelving
Open shelves offer excellent storage and display opportunities. Installing them over and under the window seat helps create a comfortable reading nook. In addition, open shelving lends a sense of depth to the space, making the room look bigger than it really is.
Accessorize With Abandon
Seats built into replacement windows in tiny rooms demand more amenities than those in bigger areas. An attention-grabbing style can make up for the scarce space. Using arresting fabrics and hanging interesting pieces of artwork in the space helps enhance the beauty of your window seat.
Use Base for Ottoman Storage
Use the are under your window seat to store furniture, like an ottoman. Rolling ottomans can provide additional seating when necessary and convenient landing spots for trays. With cabinet doors, you can magically tuck the ottoman away out of sight when more room is desired.
