How to Better Your Bay Window

Bay windows come in many different angles, sizes and home styles. No matter what your bay window looks like, there’s regularly one frequent 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 inspiration 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 a space that is already there – your bay window

  • Simple Storage: A bay window is a perfect place to stock belongings that must 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 meals. 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 tie 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 over to the bay window. This will not only open up your kitchen space, but will also be a cozy 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 use every day, which makes the tedious 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 location to place it is by your bay window. You’ll have the perfect scene to relax 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 peace with this simple spot. For the quiet rooms in your home, your bay window is longing to become a reading nook. This project is made just like the seat described 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 complete 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 set a couch or table with flowers in your bay window area. You can make your home look wonderful and utilize the space without any extra effort.
