Window seats have gained widespread popularity in recent years for their light-filled spots and cozy alcoves that offer comfortable places to kick back and relax. Let’s face it, we are drawn to the small, little enclaves in a home. These tightly-fitted nooks and crannies not only provide architectural interest but serve as functional seating and in some cases storage – not to mention space boosters. In addition to providing useable seating, window seats offer comfort as well as serene views to the outdoors. As long as there is a walled niche area in front of a window, a window seat can be used in any room in the house – from kitchen banquettes to bathroom voids. Window seat cushions can take a bland, awkward space and turn it into a comfy and decorated one that may just end up being a much-loved room focal point. When deciding on what to do with an existing nook or if you are thinking of adding a new one, consider the following 3 ways to make over the seating area using a custom cushion.
