Interior Motives – Relaxation by a window

-

Window sills are typically thought of as just something that comes at the bottom of windows, a part of the frame that goes unnoticed in our everyday lives.

roselandHowever, with a little bit of creativity, you can turn your window sill into a fashionable yet functional piece of furniture via some simple interior decorating.

By constructing a boxed in area (that will serve as the frame) beneath a window sill that has enough space, you can then add molding and paint it to match the color of your decor. If you are not handy, most remodeling contractors can build this addition for you.

Next, you can have a cushion made that fits the top of this frame; add some decorative throw pillows and wala, you have a cozy and relaxing place to sit and gaze out into the sky. Ahhhh…relaxation!

Not only can you turn the window sill area into a comfortable sofa-type seat, you can even add additional utility by having a storage space underneath it, or even use it as a toy chest for children.

I have one client who stores all those large kitchen appliances that you do not use on a regular basis in hers, like the stand mixer, food processor and toaster oven. Think of the counter space you can free up with this option. I like the idea of storing shoes, gloves, mittens, etc… If you have limited closet space or lack a mud room, this extra storage can really help clean up the clutter.
