How to Better Your Bay Window

Bay windows come in various angles, sizes and home designs. 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 want to take on creative projects, there are virtually endless possibilities to revamp 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, functional twist to your home while using a space that is already there – your bay window

  • Simple Storage: A bay window is a wonderful place to stock belongings that must be hidden, yet in a beneficial 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 perfect 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 practicality 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 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 utilize every day, which makes the hard work so much more worth it!

  • DIY Desk: Whether you aspire 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 scene 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 perfect 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 longing to become a reading nook. This project is made just like the seat explained 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 demand to move once you finish 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 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 extreme effort.
