If you’re lucky enough to have a large bay window in your home, we hope you are making use of it. These little design features are not super common in homes anymore, but they can make such a cozy spot for reading and relaxing.

If you don’t have a bay window already framed in, maybe just a really nice sunny window that you’d love to make use of, you can take notes from some of the designers included in our window seat decor collection below. They got creative with storage shelves, wood benches, and built-ins with bookshelves to create cozy lounge spaces. Add some soft upholstered cushions, accent pillows, throws, and supplemental lighting to get the perfect reading or breakfast nook to enjoy coffee, snacks, or your favorite read. For a modernized look, go for neutral colors, and keep the clutter and décor to a minimum for a clean feel.

Let’s take a look at how these different modern window seat ideas turned out below. You might see something that inspires you to install or renovate one of your own.
