An extra seat is a bonus for any space, especially in a passage or secluded corner with a window. Window seats can be cozy nooks where you can enjoy the view from outside or do the things you normally do in relative solitude. It’s important to have a comfortable mattress and some cushions. The best thing apart from the view is the added storage space you get beneath the seat. You may also see Living Room Window Designs
Think about a smart home office with an elegant furniture and state-of-the-art gadgetry. A filing cabinet would seriously harm the looks of the room. Now, a filing cabinet under the window seat would a different thing altogether. Especially if the cabinet has an elegant exterior. It does not matter whether the window is in an alcove or more open.
A sofa placed below or against a window is also a window seat. It is likely to be a living room or a waiting room. The immediate vicinity can be furnished with bookcases, a table and suspended flower holders. If the window seat is your favourite haunt, then you would do well to decorate the surrounding area with storage boxes for your mobile and laptop accessories. If you love books, you could have a mini book or magazine shelf.
You can fashion window seats out of places you may never have thought of. Be creative. If you have an existing cabinet with an open surface, voila! Just fit a mattress onto it. Get some cushions and your window seat is ready. Again, it does not matter where the wall cabinet is. It could be the kitchen cabinet for all you care, provided the kitchenware is all deposited inside the cabinet.
