Special Nonexistent Furniture

Pick a window with a lovely view of the outside for your window seat. A bay window is ideal because it offers additional views and lots of warm sunlight.
For the comfy feel of a built-in window seat without the construction, pull a bench or ottoman that's at least 18 inches deep and 4 feet long up next to your window. 
A soft cushion piled high with plush pillows and a snug blanket creates a cuddly seat.
Add window treatments to adjust direct sunlight. If you don't have a window and are creating a corner seat, add a mirror to create the illusion of one.
Surround the window seat with shelves, books, and mementos at arm's reach. Once you sit down, you won't want to get up!

Create a peaceful retreat for reading, relaxing, and 
daydreaming. Search your home for the ideal sunny window—preferably in a corner or alcove—to set up your window seat. They can be found in just about every room and range from built-in structures to unused spaces turned into clever spots to curl up on. For a casual, family-friendly feel, add a window seat in a kitchen or breakfast nook. In a home office or playroom, a window seat offers a stylish storage solution. Mix colors and patterns to create your own style and match your décor. Follow our five easy tips to make your window seat a charming and comfortable spot.
