Bay Window Sofa

Divine sun filled windows with views are the perfect places to host a selection of cushions, a tray for your beverage, a soft throw and maybe a place to keep your books. By filling the recess of a window, you can extend the comfortable seating places in your home. Different decorative styles and shapes can enhance the comfort level and look of a window. The bay windows extending outwards from the house’s facade will add a charming character to both the interior and exterior of the building if the window seat is designed to complete the overall architecture and interior design style. Take a look at the 36 Cozy Window Seats and Bay Windows With a View and let us know which style suits you best and which window seat you could accommodate in your living, dining, bedroom or children’s room.

Make more of a bay window – If your house has a bay window, you have the perfect excuse to put in a window seat. If you prefer a lighter look than the built-in bench seats you’ve seen, consider a customised sofa that fits snugly into the space you have at hand, but lightly floats rather than solidly squats there.

Bays with window seats – Bay windows are very common in British homes, particularly Victorian, Edwardian and 1930s ones, and there are many ways to dress them, depending on the shape of the bay and the window size. A built-in window seat paired with Roman blinds offers comfort in style. Mix and match prints and plains for your blinds, upholstery and cushions to create that perfect spot to watch the world go by.

In fact, in some homes, the bay window area becomes the dining room. For a unique take on bay window seating, fill the window with a couch that doubles as a “booth” for a round table. Below, a Saarinen table makes a modern splash, while striking curtains and sculptural lighting draw the eye upward.

If a home has a bay window, you are likely to find it in the living room, and we’ve got the pictures to prove it! Interestingly enough, even traditional homes are branching out and incorporating new elements into bay window seating, such as trendy fabrics. Below we see an tribal ikat print mixed with more formal botanical-motif pillows. A nice combination, don’t you think?!

Kristen DockeryI really want one of these bay windows in my dream home. I think that it would be so relaxing and so fun to have for my kids. I think that this would encourage them to read and I think that it would help them like to read for fun. I can’t wait to have a beautiful home and be able to have everything I have ever wanted in a home.NPGreenLovely photos! Definitely feeling inspired to make my own reading nook now. Unfortunately, I am renting my place, so most of these ideas, although looking stunning, can’t be implemented as it is forbidden to alternate the flat (according to my tenancy agreement). I will have to be creative, maybe buy a cosy sofa and place it near a window. Will also have to choose the right clean window with lots of sunlight and a nice view of London… I think, I got carried away a bit.

Make a feature of a window – Bay windows, and window nooks in particular, are a perfect way to create additional seating while maximising floor space. Custom-made window seats can elongate or widen the room and, when paired with additional ottomans or chairs, they allow for more seating possibilities. If you have a similar setup in your house, consider building a banquette, add some storage underneath, a plush seat topper and some colourful cushions for an instant cosy corner where you can retreat and simply watch the world go by.

The next featured space is double the fun… Yes, we have the elusive double bench! While the window itself technically isn’t a bay window, we love the way these homeowners had fun with this picturesque nook by making an unexpected seating choice. We think you’ll agree that these curved benches are true conversation pieces.

I have a bay window in my dining room. I’ve always wanted a window seat. Now, maybe, I can get hubby to make me one. I want to store my canning items in it. I hate going into the attic to find them.

Bay window is a generic term for all protruding window constructions, regardless of height. The most common inside angles are 90, 135 and 150 degrees, though triangular bays formed of two windows set at 120 degrees may be found.

You continue to amaze me with your ability and willingness to tackle anything! I like that you put the height of the window seat the same as a standard chair. So many window seats are too high in comparison to the height of the table, unless you are seating small children there. I was looking at the 10 Dreamy window seats that you posted and noticed several, if not all, are the taller height, even taking the thickness of cushions into consideration. Good eye! Great job!

I’ve never actually considered a curved sectional couch, but I’m browsing the pics with living room décor ideas, and I begin to think the overall impression is pretty interesting. Even if you are a fan of straight lines in furniture, take a peek below and I’m sure you will be pleasantly surprised. Wouldn’t it be a great idea for a bay window nook?

Drapery – In the case of bay windows, you have the option to drape the entire window and bench, which can make it much less fussy to close the drapery at night. You can then use additional shading to filter light even when the drapery is open, for maximum options.

Speaking of comforts, one approach to decorating a bay window area is to fill it with pillows and other welcoming items. A throw invites residents and guests to cozy up with a book. Don’t forget the reading material, as well as a side table for setting drinks and other items.

At the same time, knowing when to keep it simple is half the battle. When a clean-lined space and a breathtaking view are involved, few bells and whistles are necessary. The lack of clutter on the bay window seat below makes a big statement. And we like it!

Sometimes the best bay window seating involves chairs, as shown in this next modern dining space. Once again, we have a compact Saarinen table that perfectly fits the space. Padded seating adds a sense of grandeur, while a bowl of green apples is design perfection.

Bay windows became a hugely popular feature of residential Victorian architecture in the British Isles from about the 1870s and hold a continuous appeal up to this day. They are used to increase the flow of natural light into a building, thereby also making a room appear larger, and to provide views of the outside which would be unavailable with an ordinary flat window. They can be found in terraced houses, semis and detached houses as well as in blocks of flats.

You’re window seat turned out awesome! We just built a similar one in our kitchen. It was quite a bit less complicated because we didn’t have to build up any of the drywall as the way our windows and wall are set up, all we needed was a frame for the box. (smaller area). We also lucked out that our vent was already two feet out from the wall so we only had to add a half moon vent that fit over the the existing floor vent and then cut an opening in the front. My question for you is what type of paint you used for your window seat?? I’ve never worked with painting furniture before and since people will be sitting on this, I want to use a good paint that’s easy to work with but will hold up to wear and tear. Will you share what paint and type of brushes you used for painting? Thanks and again its beautiful!
