A window seat is a great way to make the most out of your new replacement windows. Apart from functioning as a window, it also physically extends the floor space of your interior by providing a seating or lounge area. Seamless Exterior, Inc. offers tips when creating a window seat.
Any Window Style Will Do
Just because bay windows already have a built-in seat doesn’t mean that it should be your one and only choice for a room with a window seat. Some home styles, after all, don’t exactly work well with a bay window. Any window design can do. Filling a corner wall with picture windows, and then installing a wall seat or a row of short cabinets will achieve the same effect.
Cushions or Bare Seat
Any windows contractor would say that your new window bench can either be topped with a cushion or left bare. The choice really depends on what you want to do with the window seat. To make it into a real lounge area, install some cushions, either one cushion or several separated into pairs or threes. Leaving it bare is great for a quick sit-and-lounge setup. Add some pillows to your bare window bench to improve comfort.
Windows and Heat Resistance
Because you’ll be spending some time lounging on your new window seat or bench, consider the heat resistance of your new windows.
