Baby Room Design: Window Seat Inspiration
Window seats can be not only fun in your nursery, kid’s room or playroom, but also practical. A window seat can be the perfect spot for reading or relaxing and can also serve as a wonderful storage area for toys and books. Check out our nursery design ideas below incorporating window seats in your nursery!
The window seat in this stunning nursery is beautiful, filled with fun pillows and drawer storage underneath. Luxurious window treatments can dramatically dress up a window seat space.
We fell in love this pink and green palette...So feminine and fresh! The window treatment & shelves add pizazz to this cute corner in a little girl's room. Drawers underneath the seat can hold clothes, toys and more.
A fun blue & red boy's playroom is designed with built-in seat/bench, bamboo roman shades, striped red, white and blue walls and assorted pillows. Tons of space below for organizing books and games.
Use baskets and other containers for organizing stuffed animals, games and books.
This assortment of fun pillows in pink and yellow is a pretty palette for a baby girl's nursery.
Window Seats made from IKEA Bookshelves:
IKEA hacking. It sounds like something illegal. In reality, it's something creative people do all the time. Purchase an inexpensive piece of IKEA furniture, bring it home and doctor it up to make it look like a built in piece of furniture. This can be as simple as a new coat of paint, changing out knobs or adding some pillows. Either way, IKEA-hacking is a well known hobby - popular enough to have inspired a dedicated website www.ikeahackers.net to the repurposing and modifications of IKEA products. Who new??We found several window seats that were made using IKEA bookshelves (the Lack bookshelf or the Expedite Shelving Unit). Click on image for original source and more ideas.
