If I had to think of one word to describe a window seat, I would have to say "cozy". When conjuring up an image of a window seat, I envision pillows, soft light, a book, a blanket and of course, sunshine spilling through the window. What a perfect spot to watch nature, read a story, chat with a close friend or even take a nap. Window seats add instant charm and character to a house while giving you much needed storage space. Adding a window seat in your home can help to eliminate that "spec home" feel making it feel more like a custom home. Think you don't have the right space for one? You don't always need a bay window or a bump out. Check out these pictures of some great window seats and see if you can make space for one (or two) in your house.
