    Window Seat Ideas

    Add interest and utility to a wall by flanking a window with a pair of closets or built-in cabinets. Put a window seat in the middle, and within this 2-ft.-deep space, you’ve gained storage, a sunny reading nook, and reflective surfaces that bounce daylight into the room.

    Love the shelves facing towards the window seat.

    Built-ins that you would never guess are there.

    Another wall sticker "headboard" I really like, to keep a ghetto bed from looking... well... ghetto.

    Recess a seat between built-in bookcases, and invite readers to take a load off. This seat's creamy white paint and chunky baseboards complement the window's raised-panel casing. | Photo: Eric Roth |
