Smart Storage Ideas for Extra-Functional Window Seats

Bay and bow units offer tremendous storage space potential. With the right idea, you can add more function to your attractive window seats.

Extra-Functional Window Seats

To maximize the niche bay and bow windows, get inspiration from these bright ideas by Renewal by Andersen® of Orange County:

Have an Instant Mudroom

A window seat situated by the entryway makes a neat place to stash dirty footwear. It offers a nice perch to sit on while putting on or removing shoes, sandals, or boots. You can dedicate the entire base for storage or just have cubbyholes on the side. Either way, it’s a clever solution to keep your lovely flooring free from muddy footprints.

Frame Your Window with Shelving

Installing built-in bookcases is a smart solution to fill your empty walls sandwiching your bay or bow units. This is a brilliant idea, especially when you intend to turn your window seat into a reading nook. The sneaky shelves make your favorite titles within reach while adding more interest to your home design.

Actually, you don’t need a window seat to pull off this concept. Outfitting your gliding windows with these storage units works wonders too.

Lose the Doors

An open window seat storage lends the spot a 3D look. Unlike enclosed cabinets, cubbies offer depth to the eye. The added dimension helps produce an illusion of space, creating the impression of a roomy floor.

Enjoy Warm Hugs after Bath

When building a window seat in your bathroom, use the heating duct to toast towels stored inside the base. This way, you could wrap yourself in warmth after taking a shower or soaking in the tub.
