Better Your Bay Windows

How to Better Your Bay Window

Published on

Bay windows come in an array of angles, sizes and home designs. No matter what your bay window looks like, there’s usually one common theme: it is the perfect window style for a DIY project. For the homeowners who love to tackle creative projects, there are virtually endless possibilities to change 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, functional twist to your home while using an area that is already there – your bay window

  • Simple Storage: A bay window is a great place to stow away belongings that need to be hidden, yet in a handy spot. Instead of putting your winter clothes all the way down to the basement, conveniently store them in a bay window storage unit a few feet from your closet in warm months. Storage units are also excellent for holding kitchen supplies for special get-togethers. 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 tie the bench into your space.

  • 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 near the bay window. This will not only clear up your kitchen space, but will also be a cozy 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 utilize 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 escape and enjoy beautiful days while still being productive. Spruce up your desk with some flowers to take place where a lamp would usually sit. Plus, they will the right amount of sun and smell good too.

  • Reading Nook: Escape in comfort and quiet 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 explained above, but booklovers can add a twist. Instead of closing off the front of your bench, construct 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 below 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 chic and utilize the space without any added effort.
