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 regularly one common theme: it is the perfect 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 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 great place to store belongings that need to be hidden, yet in a handy
spot. Instead of sending 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 warm
months. Storage units are also perfect 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 coordinate
the bench into your space.
Saving Seat: To highlight and add even more benefit
to your storage place, add a seat cushion. For windows in your kitchen, consider sliding your kitchen table over to
the bay window. This will not only open up your kitchen space,
but will also be a comfortable 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 use 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 area to place it is by your bay window. You’ll
have the perfect scene to gaze 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 perfect 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 longing to become a reading nook. This project is made just like the seat explained above, but booklovers can put in 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 finish a book - you simply dive into your next novel an arms-length under you.
