Better Your Bay Windows

How to Better Your Bay Window

Published on

Bay windows come in various angles, sizes and home styles. No matter what your bay window looks like, there’s normally one common theme: it is the best window style for a DIY project. For the homeowners who love to begin creative projects, there are virtually endless possibilities to transform 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, rational twist to your home while utilizing an object that is already there – your bay window

  • Simple Storage: A bay window is a wonderful place to store belongings that should be hidden, yet in a handy spot. Instead of putting your winter clothes all the way down to the basement, simply store them in a bay window storage unit a few feet from your closet in sunny months. Storage units are also excellent for holding kitchen supplies for special get-togethers. 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.

  • Space Saving Seat: To highlight and add even more benefit to your storage place, add a seat cushion. For windows in your kitchen, think about sliding your kitchen table close to the bay window. This will not only free 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 utilize every day, which makes the hard 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 spot to place it is by your bay window. You’ll have the perfect view to gaze 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 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 begging 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, 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 complete a book - you simply dive into your next novel an arms-length beneath you.
If you have a bay window, but aren’t into DIY projects, it is an easy fix to set a couch or table with flowers in your bay window location. You can make your home look elegant and utilize the space without any extreme effort.
