One of the most common solutions to maximize the extra space that bay and bow windows create is building seats. Having additional seating is an ideal way to turn this added space into a snug haven. The possibilities are endless when designing built-in seats for your windows. Renewal by Andersen® of New Mexico shares some ideas to render your window seats as stylish as they’re functional.
Camouflage the Cabinetry
Built-in seats can stand out on their own but can also blend in with other components of your interior decor. If you’re opting for the latter, you should ensure that they go well with existing elements. For consistency, pattern their wooden base after the look of your cabinetry or shelving. Uniformity can work wonders for your interior design.
Leave Storage Open
Skipping the cabinet doors in your window seat can add more visual element and catch attention. Open storage brings a sense of depth to the area, highlighting the extra square footage your bay or bow offers. You don’t have to limit this design concept on the base alone. As your expert window contractor, we recommend that you use the open cabinets for footwear storage.
Accessorize with Abundance
When your bay or bow can only leave a tiny space for the seat, up the style factor to make this space more inviting. Pull off an eye-catching window seat design by dressing it up with various decorative pieces. You can outfit the cushion with posh fabric or hang a pair of tasteful artworks are some design ideas that you can try.
