Bay Window Seat

Either contoured or a straight fronted bay window seat with storage.

Enhance the beauty and refinement of your bay window

with a custom-made seat.

Bay window seat with either front or top access?

Front access via room facing doors provides convenient storage underneath the bay window seat. Of course, front access causes less disturbance for people, pets or items currently using the seat. By matching the style of the doors with other cabinet doors in the room can connect and allow the flow of the living space. Top access offers cleaner lines, but will require removal of soft furnishings, people and pets. Consider weight and what will be stored before designing as top access may provide slightly stronger support.

History of the bay window and the seat.

The bay window’s history dates back to medieval times when it was used to provide more light and warmth to a room. It became popular in the Victorian era as a way to showcase a home’s wealth and style. Today, bay windows are still a coveted feature in homes and provide a cozy nook for reading, relaxing, or admiring the view. Having a window seat also gives you a little more storage when you need it.
