A window seat is a useful piece every room could use. Except for floor-to-ceiling windows, you can install it next to almost unit, especially the bay. A slender banquette is perfect for a wraparound family of double-hung fixtures in the corner. A daybed creates a snug, napping spot by the large casement or sliding window.
While any home area is a great candidate to put a window seat, there are certain places that are more perfect for it. Renewal by Andersen® of Denver suggests you install them in these places:
A cushioned seat with cubbies by your Colorado Springs window can turn your entryway into a mudroom. It offers a warm welcome, allowing you to conveniently remove and store your shoes. The base storage would eliminate any trip hazards and make the area clutter-free. Without letting the dirt in the shoes reach the vestibule, a window seat is an excellent addition to help keep your entire home clean.
Kitchens have become a social place for accommodating guests and exchanging conversations with the family. Even if you already have two to four stools by the island, you could never have too much seating. Putting a window seat in the kitchen is trickier than you imagine, though. With limited square footage, this fixture might narrow your pathways and make it harder to move around.
As an experienced Denver window company, we only recommend adding a seat when the paths within the cooking zone are at least 36 inches wide. Otherwise, we suggest installing a bay or a bow unit first to increase your kitchen’s floor space.
As one of the most unutilized areas in most homes, a window seat would provide this spot a good purpose. With a comfortable cushion and sufficient backrest, it could suddenly become a lovable nook for reading.
