These Awesome Window Seats Are The Perfect Reading Nook
We love to read, anytime, anywhere. But there are some places where we particularly like to read and today we’ll turn our attention to the window seats, the perfect reading nook.
It’s no wonder window seats are often the most loved element in a home. They offer comfort—especially with a thick cushion on top—and views to the outdoors. They create a sense of coziness and security, thanks to the niche that defines a window seat – the homey heaven for daydreaming, reading or even napping.
If you have a space in your home with a view and lots of sunshine, this is the perfect place to have a window seat with lots of cozy cushions, a tray for beverages, a luxurious throw and maybe even some shelving to store books with some accent lighting – the dreamy reading nook you have imagined.
They also provide extra storage when fitted with drawers, cabinets, or a simply hinged bench top. A window seat with storage is a practical and beautiful solution to most homeowners biggest need – more storage space.
You don’t have to change the structure of your house to create a space dedicated to your favorite books. All you need is a few items ( a bench, a cushion and a few pillows), a comfortable area, lots and lots of books and a keen eye for design. This architectural feature can work in just about any area of the house, from the kitchen to bedrooms.
Large and luxurious or small and modest window seats are fabulous additions to any room decorating, no matter your style. Whether it is traditional, transitional or contemporary, you can add both style and functionality to your home with a window seat.
