How to Better Your Bay Window
Bay windows come in various angles, sizes and home styles. No matter what your bay window looks like, there’s regularly one constant theme: it is the perfect window style for a DIY project. For the homeowners who seek to take on creative projects, there are virtually endless possibilities to change your window with a lot of creativity 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, practical twist to your home while utilizing a space that is already there – your bay window.
Storage: A bay window is a great place to stow
away belongings that should be hidden, yet in a handy
spot. Instead of sending your winter clothes all the way
down to the basement, easily store them in a bay
window storage unit a few steps from your closet in sunny
months. Storage units are also excellent for holding
kitchen supplies for special occasions. Tuck your
table cloths and fancy silverware in a safe space 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 accentuate and add even more efficiency
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 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 wish 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 scene to relax and enjoy
beautiful days while still being productive. Spruce up
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 silence 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 acknowledged above, but booklovers can put in 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 requirement to move once you end a book - you simply dive into your next novel an arms-length under you.
