Better Your Bay Windows

How to Better Your Bay Window

Published on

Bay windows come in many different angles, sizes and home trends. No matter what your bay window looks like, there’s normally one frequent 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, practical twist to your home while using a space that is already there – your bay window

  • Simple Storage: A bay window is a wonderful place to stock belongings that must be hidden, yet in a beneficial 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 strides 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 accentuate and add even more efficiency to your storage place, add a seat cushion. For windows in your kitchen, think about sliding your kitchen table near the bay window. This will not only open 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 use every day, which makes the difficult 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 area to place it is by your bay window. You’ll have the perfect view to gaze and enjoy beautiful days while still being productive. Design your desk with some flowers to take place where a lamp would normally sit. Plus, they will the right 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 begging to become a reading nook. This project is made just like the seat described 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.
If you have a bay window, but aren’t into DIY projects, it is a simple fix to place a couch or table with flowers in your bay window space. You can make your home look wonderful and utilize the space without any extreme effort.
