Bay Window Seating Styles
A bay window seating provides a cozy place to sit and read in the sun on a winter day. Creating a bay window seating can make a bay window look attractive and comfortable place. There are several styles of bay window seats. One example is bench seating. There are several bench seating options for your bay window. The bench can be designed to follow the angle of the window and have one section for each of the windows in the grouping. The benches should come to the bottom edge of the window sills and ideally be at least 15 inches off the floor for the most comfortable seat. The benches can be made with doors or drawers beneath the bench for additional storage. You may opt for open shelves to hold books or baskets. A hinged top on the seat would also provide a storage bin, making the most of the space. Include a cushion made to fit the top of the seat. You can coordinate the cushion with window treatments or other accessories in the room. Making the cushion 3 inches deep will bring the height to that of a typical chair. If space allows, add a few throw pillows for comfort.
