Bay and bow are functional replacement windows that offer several key features including ventilation, daylighting, and storage. You can also turn them into cozy seats. [company_name] shares some design ideas on how to style your bay and bow windows as functional seats in your home.
Many homeowners turn bay and bow windows into a reading nook. Small living rooms can benefit from the added seating the most. For example, instead of investing in another couch, you can turn to the bay window as an added seating area. Create a unified look with matching cushions for the seats, including bay and bow windows. If your living room faces a great view, an oversized bay is an ideal choice. You can add window treatments like Roman shades to maintain privacy.
As with small living rooms, bedrooms with limited space can benefit from the extra seating. Clear some floor space by making your bedroom bay or bow windows the main seating nook. You can also benefit from the ventilation features that bay or bow windows offer. You can choose operable designs like double hung windows and combine them with fixed picture windows to create a bay or bow. You can also add more function by using the space underneath the seat as storage for spare blankets and pillows.
A cozy banquette placed flush on the wall is a welcome and space-saving addition to any kitchen. Custom upholstered cushions with proper back heights combined with a small circular table complete your dining nook.
You can also create a small pantry with the added space from your bay and bow. You can store food items and appliances that you don’t use regularly. You can opt for open shelving or drawers for storage spaces.
