Installing a window seat is a great way to make the most out of your new windows. Apart from the usual benefits you receive from a window, creating a window seat physically extends the floor space of your interior by providing a lounge area. Renewal by Andersen® of Eastern NY, the window installation expert, offers tips on choosing the perfect window seat.
When designing your window seat, comfort should be a top priority. Your new window bench can either be topped with a cushion or left bare. The choice really depends on what you want to do with the window seat. If you intend to create a lounge area, it’s probably best to arrange some cushions on the window seat. Depending on your preference, you can choose one large cushion or several. Leaving it bare is great for a quick sit-and-lounge setup. Add some pillows to your bare window bench to improve comfort and aesthetic appeal.
Don’t Limit Yourself to One Window Style
Just because bay windows already have a built-in seat area doesn’t mean that it should be your only choice for a room with a window seat. After all, some home styles don’t work well with a bay window. Any window design can do. For instance, filling a corner wall with picture windows, and then installing a wall seat or a row of short cabinets will achieve the same effect. If you have a specific window style in mind, you can talk to the experts at Renewal by Andersen of Eastern NY and we will provide custom windows for you.
Consider Heat Resistance
Because you’ll be spending time lounging on your new window seat or bench, consider the heat resistance of your new windows. Renewal by Andersen windows feature energy-efficient High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass that boasts high heat resistance, ensuring a comfortable experience when you recline and rest on your new window seat.
