How to Better Your Bay Window

Bay windows come in many different angles, sizes and home designs. No matter what your bay window looks like, there’s usually one constant theme: it is the perfect window style for a DIY project. For the homeowners who love to begin creative projects, there are virtually endless possibilities to revamp 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 utilizing an object that is already there – your bay window

  • Simple Storage: A bay window is a great place to stock belongings that need to be hidden, yet in a convenient spot. Instead of storing 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 sunny months. Storage units are also ideal for holding kitchen supplies for special meals. 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 highlight and add even more practicality to your storage place, add a seat cushion. For windows in your kitchen, contemplate sliding your kitchen table near the bay window. This will not only free up your kitchen space, but will also be a comfortable 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 utilize 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 area to place it is by your bay window. You’ll have the perfect outlook to gaze and enjoy beautiful days while still being productive. Decorate your desk with some flowers to take place where a lamp would usually sit. Plus, they will the perfect 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 asking to become a reading nook. This project is made just like the seat acknowledged 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 end 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 put a couch or table with flowers in your bay window location. You can make your home look elegant and utilize the space without any added effort.
