Window seats call to mind quiet days and comfy book reading by the light of the sun or even a very bright full moon. While these décor options are sometimes thought of as old-fashioned, they can add a charming touch to any Florida home while still bringing in great amounts of natural light to any room.
This modern, full-wall window seat is large enough for a sofa or a day bed. It creates an expansive view both outside and in, and the light it brings to the room is enough to illuminate a large part of the house.
Who says window seats just have to look outdoors? This is a great way to utilize a wall and create a cozy nook for relaxation. This type of renovation can work with any house or any syle of décor. And it’s a particularly great option for the kids!
Even homes without the space for full bay windows can have window seats. This example shows how small space doesn’t have to limit you. It’s perfect for a bedroom or an office, and the addition of the bench isn’t impeded by the slanted ceiling.
If you have the wall space and room design to accommodate it, setting a deep-set window seat off with floor-length curtains is a great way to create a private little space for yourself – or anyone else. It becomes a room within a room, and with that view, it’s a wonderful little refuge for some peace and quiet.
