Window Seat Ideas

Sexy Nerd and I are planning to build a window seat beneath the windows in our dining room. Well, really Sexy Nerd is going to build it while I blog in my pajamas, but I'm still planning to take a chunk of the credit.

Here are some photos I've gathered from various sites for window seat inspiration:

I love everything about this room, especially the wall color.

Sexy Nerd hates this photo! Not because of the design, but because I realized when I saw it that we could create this exact space if we (he) moved our washer and dryer upstairs (and built a place for them upstairs, of course).

I've been saving these photos to my computer over the past few years, so I unfortunately don't have links (if you see a photo you recognise, let me know and I'll link it back to where it belongs!) This has taught me the importance of adding my url when I post a photo of my home online (if only it weren't such a pain! Does anyone know of a shortcut for this?)

For our window seat, I'm leaning toward having large baskets for storage underneath, like in the second photo, and a clean, natural finish, possibly without any cushions, like in the last photo. Though, I'm not really sure those two photos combined would result in a pretty window seat.

Which photo is your favorite?


  1. There is something about window seats that has enormous appeal to almost all of us. I also love the photo of the fireplace inglenook. You have a beautiful blog. It is a pleasure to visit here. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  2. that first just plain awesome.

    love the window as well.

    happy weekend.


  3. We have an older farm house on the property I would love to remodel and fix up. I think a window seat beneath the upstairs window (the one that overlooks the pastures and woods to the south) would be so nice! Thanks for the ideas!

  4. I too love window seats but have never lived in a place where i could have them....

  5. I love it that you'll take the credit while you blog in your jim jams!! That sounds like me!!!


  6. I just put in a window seat last week! Hopefully I'll find the time to share it next week...the pictures aren't that great, though! Thanks for sharing your inspirations at the Tuesday To Do Party!

  7. I always emailed this website post page to all my associates, as if like to
    read it after that my links will too.
    Here is my page my computer is slow

  8. Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  9. I actually like the first photo the most. It just spells a relaxing country space for me. As for your plans, I think it’s possible to combine the basket ideas with the clean look of the last photo. You just need to be extra creative with the window treatment to make it beautiful. Anyway, I would love to see how “Sexy Nerd” accomplished the task.
