A window seat adds so much charm to a room – beckoning you to enjoy a bit of relaxation in a cozy spot. Some are large enough for napping, others invite you to curl up with a good book for an hour or two. Here’s a variety for you to enjoy – you might find you have a favorite!
The seat above is brightly painted with colorful pillows to match. The addition of drawers creates an ideal spot for extra storage in the home. Mom can sit here with a magazine and watch her kids playing outside in the backyard.
A beautifully arched window is a crowning statement in this cozy alcove that affords the convenience of a built-in bookcase. You can’t help but feel a little glamorous lounging under this grand window.
Rich, wood trim creates a cozy nook that feels like a big old hug while relaxing on the window seat. You could just sit here and daydream while gazing outside at the trees and watching the birds. Leave a window slightly ajar to enjoy the fresh scent of nature to enhance the experience. This little nook is so inviting.
An all-white alcove is flanked by a pair of bookcases and overhead reading lights. Drawers underneath the seat provide a space for extra pillows and blankets. Lighter colors create a fresh decor.
A built-in window seat always looks good in a bedroom and this one enjoys a vaulted ceiling and colorful pillows in fun patterns.
Even the family dog has a hard time resisting the urge to enjoy a built-in seat. It’s a convenient spot for humans to put on their shoes (or take them off) in the mud room.
This particular seat is deeper than most for extra comfort with a thicker mattress pad on top. I like smaller rooms for sleeping so this little nook is right up my alley for catching nightly zzzz’s.
A beach style seating nook enjoys a great view of a palm tree outside, with a wooden surfboard as decoration indoors.
A smaller window seat creates a place to sit and put on your pants or shoes if your flexibility makes it difficult to bend over. Narrow drawers underneath are a great place to keep your socks or slippers.
