Bay windows are a versatile upgrade for your home. Apart from maximizing natural lighting, ventilation and outdoor views, they also add extra square footage to your interior. The most common way to use this space is to turn it into a cozy seating nook. With the perfect balance of color and style, it can make your home feel more warm and welcoming. Let Renewal by Andersen® of Columbus, Ohio, share four design ideas from which to take inspiration.
Vintage Bathroom Storage. If you have a vintage-style bathroom, consider preserving its character. Incorporate a window bench that reflects its theme with the added benefit of ample storage. Opt for deep drawers to easily place toiletries and towels within arm’s reach of the tub and sink. A soft, slipcovered top provides a touch of color within the space.
Cheerful Landing. There are times when an architectural feature that works best in one part of the home poses an issue in another. If you have a high ceiling, for instance, it can be impressive in your entryways, but give your staircase a hollow feel. Having bay windows with built-in seats along your staircase landing make for a sleek transition between the upper and lower halls. Depending on your home’s theme, you can dress up the windows with draperies to achieve a dreamy ambiance.
Kid’s Playroom. You can keep your playroom organized without sacrificing style by installing wide, curved window seats. Their smooth lines tone down the look of the big window units. Meanwhile, their deep drawers make toys, puzzles and books accessible to all members of the family. Be sure to add plump pillows to make it cozier for unwinding, reading or cuddling.
Dazzling Sanctuary. Create an elegant statement for your master bedroom by designing a sunlit retreat. You can beautify the seating nook with rich-colored furnishings and window treatments, making it the room’s focal point. Consider including a molded plaster ceiling for the best results.
