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 best window style for a DIY project. For the homeowners who want to take on creative projects, there are virtually endless possibilities to revamp your window with a lot of imagination 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, rational twist to your home while utilizing a space that is already there – your bay window.
Storage: A bay window is a wonderful place to stock belongings that should be hidden, yet in a convenient
spot. Instead of putting your winter clothes all the way
down to the basement, simply store them in a bay
window storage unit a few feet from your closet in warm
months. Storage units are also ideal for holding
kitchen supplies for special meals. Tuck your
table cloths and fancy silverware in a safe area where they
cannot fall or be touched. Add a flower pot or pillows on top to coordinate
the bench into your space.
Saving Seat: To highlight and add even more efficiency
to your storage place, add a seat cushion. For windows in your kitchen, consider sliding your kitchen table near
the bay window. This will not only free 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 outlook to gaze and enjoy
beautiful days while still being productive. Decorate
your desk with some flowers to take place where a lamp would normally
sit. Plus, they will the suitable amount of sun and smell
- Reading Nook: Escape in comfort and silence 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 described above, but booklovers can add a twist. Instead of closing off the front of your bench, make dividers to make a mini, horizontal bookcase underneath your nook. This allows you to be hooked on your nook without the requirement to move once you finish a book - you simply dive into your next novel an arms-length below you.
