Bay windows and bow windows are impressive additions to your home. They provide you with a comfortable and convenient place to sit and relax. Maybe you want to read a book and sip some tea, or you want somewhere to take a quick nap before you get on with your day. However, not all window seats are created equal. Here are some ideas for making your position even more comfortable.
Build a Base with Cushions
Take a moment to think about the dimensions of the window seat that you are trying to upgrade. Cushions make a good base, even if you already have some lying around the house. See what is most comfortable, but in some cases, you may need to take a trip to the store to find some other options that work better. Don’t worry about gaps that you see, since they can be filled in later.
Consider Different Uses
Now you’ll have to think about the different uses you have in mind for your window seat. This can help you decide what fabric you want for the cushions and pillows you add so that you can relax without standing up to find that your body is aching. If you are planning on eating and drinking while perched in your window seat, then you should find materials that can resist stains and spills.
Add Some Velcro
The next idea you can try is to add some velcro. This prevents the cushions from slipping and sliding off every time you sit down or stand up. The tape can help keep the cushions in place as long as you are careful about it. Experiment with velcro and tape and see which material works better for you. However, if you are unimpressed with how well the tape works, then velcro could be the solution that you are looking for when you need to make your window seat cushion more stable.
Fill in the Gaps
Now it’s time to deal with the gaps that you noticed earlier. This is where you are encouraged to add as many pillows as you want. It helps give the window seat some more character and aesthetic appeal than it had before. By the time you’re done, you might not even want to get up.
