Window seats are a beloved feature of a home that are regarded as something special. Many home buyers get excited when they see one in a home. It’s pretty easy to install a window seat if you don’t already have one; if you have a bay window or a corner with windows, that works best. However; you can create your own easily with some bookcases or cabinets on either side of a window if it has enough wall space and fashion a seat in between. Then comes the fun part: the decorating. Styling a window seat is a simple, fun project because it’s a small space that can have a huge impact. Here are 10 ideas with some tips on styling a window seat.
