Better Your Bay Windows

How to Better Your Bay Window

Published on

Bay windows come in an array of angles, sizes and home styles. No matter what your bay window looks like, there’s regularly one frequent theme: it is the best window style for a DIY project. For the homeowners who want to take on creative projects, there are virtually endless possibilities to transform 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 a space that is already there – your bay window

  • Simple Storage: A bay window is a wonderful place to store belongings that must be hidden, yet in a convenient 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 strides 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 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, consider sliding your kitchen table close to the bay window. This will not only open up your kitchen space, but will also be a cozy 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 use every day, which makes the difficult work so much more worth it!

  • DIY Desk: Whether you wish 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 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 normally sit. Plus, they will the right 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 begging to become a reading nook. This project is made just like the seat described above, but booklovers can put in 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 requirement 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 quick fix to put 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.
