Windows are not only essential to provide natural light to our homes but also open to the outside and expand our vision. Window seats allow us to take advantage of these advantages comfortably. Reading, listening to music or just looking out of the window are some of the activities we can develop while enjoying a bit of sunshine on a wintry day.
This space can become a very special corner for us and as we will see below it can be used for many things. Any relatively low window can be used to build a bank next to it.
Depending on the room in which we mount the bank next to the window we can give one use or another. From a simple place where we lie down to think to one in which we can share with family and friends.
So when we take advantage of a window located in the living room, we will use it as a living area or as a dining area. In both tasks we will have a wonderful space.
But it can also be located in a bedroom, adult or child, and then we will use it as a charming little corner to lie down to read or study.
You can even install shelves on the sides and then have a fantastic library with space to read.
Now we will look at the decorative styles, in any we can create a bench under the window, whether classic, rustic or contemporary. In the minimalist style decorations you can easily create a bench next to the window.
In any style in which we have decorated our house can fit perfectly a seat next to the window. Simply create a large enough shelf and place some cushions to make it comfortable to sit on it.
As you can see in these images you can even go a little further and prepare a bed with storage in that space or a whole rest area.
The options are very varied as you have seen, you just need to decide on a solution and put it into practice. You will enjoy your window as you never thought to do it.
