I love window seats. They are the perfect place to store things, sit and tie your shoe, or relax and read a book. Sometimes we build them in a kitchen and call them breakfast bays, but if it is a seat built under a window-it’s a window seat. They can be plain or fancy, adorned with cushions or simple slabs, in the end, they evoke a warm inviting feeling in the room.
We sometimes use window seats to hide radiators or heating and cooling ducts. A piano hinge at the window side allows for a lift up lid. Bookcases under the seat can be wonderfully self serving.
The addition of a reading light makes a window seat even more practical and inviting. A cozy window seat can be a real asset to any room.
