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.
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.
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
- 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.
