How to Better Your Bay Window

Bay windows come in an array of angles, sizes and home styles. No matter what your bay window looks like, there’s normally one common 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 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 need to 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 steps from your closet in warm months. Storage units are also perfect for holding kitchen supplies for special occasions. 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.

  • Space Saving Seat: To accentuate and add even more practicality to your storage place, add a seat cushion. For windows in your kitchen, contemplate sliding your kitchen table close to the bay window. This will not only clear up your kitchen space, but will also be a convenient and naturally lit place to have 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 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 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 suitable 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 acknowledged 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 requirement 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 a quick fix to place a couch or table with flowers in your bay window area. You can make your home look elegant and utilize the space without any added effort.
