How to Better Your Bay Window

Bay windows come in many different angles, sizes and home designs. No matter what your bay window looks like, there’s regularly one common theme: it is the best window style for a DIY project. For the homeowners who want to tackle creative projects, there are virtually endless possibilities to transform 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 using an area that is already there – your bay window

  • Simple Storage: A bay window is a great place to store belongings that must be hidden, yet in a handy spot. Instead of storing your winter clothes all the way down to the basement, conveniently store them in a bay window storage unit a few steps from your closet in summer months. Storage units are also excellent 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.

  • Space Saving Seat: To emphasize and add even more benefit to your storage place, add a seat cushion. For windows in your kitchen, think about sliding your kitchen table close to the bay window. This will not only free up your kitchen space, but will also be a convenient 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 aspire to make your own or you’d rather just buy a desk, a good spot to place it is by your bay window. You’ll have the perfect view to relax and enjoy beautiful days while still being productive. Design your desk with some flowers to take place where a lamp would usually sit. Plus, they will the suitable amount of sun and smell good too.

  • Reading Nook: Escape in comfort and peace with this simple spot. For the quiet rooms in your home, your bay window is asking to become a reading nook. This project is made just like the seat described above, but booklovers can implement 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 demand to move once you end a book - you simply dive into your next novel an arms-length under you.
If you have a bay window, but aren’t into DIY projects, it is a simple fix to set a couch or table with flowers in your bay window area. You can make your home look elegant and utilize the space without any added effort.
