How to Better Your Bay Window

Bay windows come in various angles, sizes and home trends. No matter what your bay window looks like, there’s regularly one common theme: it is the best window style for a DIY project. For the homeowners who love to tackle 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, functional twist to your home while using an area that is already there – your bay window

  • Simple Storage: A bay window is a wonderful place to stow away belongings that need to be hidden, yet in a handy spot. Instead of storing your winter clothes all the way down to the basement, easily 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 occasions. Tuck your table cloths and fancy silverware in a safe area 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 clear 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 hard 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 spot to place it is by your bay window. You’ll have the perfect view to relax and enjoy beautiful days while still being productive. Spruce up your desk with some flowers to take place where a lamp would generally 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 begging to become a reading nook. This project is made just like the seat acknowledged 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 beneath 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 chic and utilize the space without any extra effort. To install or learn more about bay windows, visit our showroom in Mankato, or call our professionals at 507-625-6933.
