We have built a few custom windowseats over the years and they are such wonderfully useful built-ins. They provide seating and storage at an inviting, well-lit location, perfect for reading.
The white window seat shown here was installed in a client’s residence in Malvern, Pennsylvania horse country.
It featured five large drawers; one with a with custom lift-out wooden tray for storing smaller items above. The drawer fronts are raised panels and the fluted stiles help complete the traditional look.
The warmer, cream-colored window seat demonstrates a custom shape, other than the more frequently seen rectangle. This more simple and modern-looking piece was well-used in a lake house kitchen. The drawers stored games and toys and whatever needed to be hidden away. The pulls are matching wood. Installed over a transition between the tile and cork floors, the windowseat is a perfect fit!
Do you have a spot that could benefit from a beautiful and functional window seat? They enhance any room and can be tailored to every decor.
