How to Better Your Bay Window

Bay windows come in many different angles, sizes and home trends. No matter what your bay window looks like, there’s usually 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 change 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, practical twist to your home while utilizing a space 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 handy spot. Instead of sending 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 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 collaborate 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, consider sliding your kitchen table near 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 utilize every day, which makes the hard 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 location to place it is by your bay window. You’ll have the perfect scene to escape 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 suitable 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 begging to become a reading nook. This project is made just like the seat described above, but booklovers can add 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 need to move once you finish 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 wonderful and utilize the space without any extra effort.
