Building a nook by the window has always posed a challenge for many people: how to make the most of the space under the window so it feels comfortable and adds charm to the whole room? By using miniature sofas, pillows, cushions, even small mattresses, a wonderful window seat can be created. Window seats can become your favorite spot in the home, provided that the ledge is wide enough to accommodate a seat or you can choose to add miniature sofas to create the dreamy seat you have been thinking about.


Divine sun filled windows with views are the perfect places to host a selection of cushions, a tray for your beverage, a soft throw and maybe a place to keep your books. By filling the recess of a window, you can extend the comfortable seating places in your home. Different decorative styles and shapes can enhance the comfort level and look of a window.
