How to Better Your Bay Window
Bay windows come in various angles, sizes and home trends. No matter what your bay window looks like, there’s usually one common theme: it is the ideal window style for a DIY project. For the homeowners who want to begin creative projects, there are virtually endless possibilities to transform your window with a lot of creativity and a little bit of work.
From Pinterest and DIY design bloggers to your own mind’s creations, possibilities abound that will add a creative, functional twist to your home while transforming an area that is already there – your bay window.
Storage: A bay window is a great place to stow
away belongings that must be hidden, yet in a convenient
spot. Instead of sending your winter clothes all the way
down to the basement, simply store them in a bay
window storage unit a few steps from your closet in warm
months. Storage units are also excellent for holding
kitchen supplies for special get-togethers. Tuck your
table cloths and fancy silverware in a safe place where they
cannot fall or be touched. Add a flower pot or pillows on top to tie
the bench into your space.
Saving Seat: To accentuate and add even more efficiency
to your storage place, add a seat cushion. For windows in your kitchen, contemplate sliding your kitchen table near
the bay window. This will not only open up your kitchen space,
but will also be a cozy and naturally lit place to
enjoy family meals or chat with friends. Transforming
your bay window nook into a seat is a DIY project that
you can purpose every day, which makes the tedious
work so much more worth it!
- DIY Desk:
Whether you want to make your own or you’d rather just buy a
desk, a good location to place it is by your bay window. You’ll
have the perfect scene to escape and enjoy
beautiful days while still being productive. Design
your desk with some flowers to take place where a lamp would generally
sit. Plus, they will the right amount of sun and smell
- Reading Nook: Escape in comfort and quiet with this simple spot. For the quiet rooms in your home, your bay window is longing to become a reading nook. This project is made just like the seat acknowledged above, but booklovers can add a twist. Instead of closing off the front of your bench, create dividers to make a mini, horizontal bookcase underneath your nook. This allows you to be hooked on your nook without the need to move once you finish a book - you simply dive into your next novel an arms-length below you.
