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 normally one constant theme: it is the ideal window style for a DIY project. For the homeowners who want to tackle 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 using a space that is already there – your bay window.
Storage: A bay window is a wonderful place to stow
away belongings that should be hidden, yet in a handy
spot. Instead of storing your winter clothes all the way
down to the basement, easily store them in a bay
window storage unit a few strides 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 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 highlight and add even more practicality
to your storage place, add a seat cushion. For windows in your kitchen, think
about sliding your kitchen table over to
the bay window. This will not only clear up your kitchen space,
but will also be a comfortable and naturally lit place to
appreciate 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 difficult
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 area to place it is by your bay window. You’ll
have the perfect outlook to relax and enjoy
beautiful days while still being productive. Spruce up
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 peace with this simple spot. For the quiet rooms in your home, your bay window is begging 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 under you.
