A seating nook for bay or bow windows is an excellent addition to any home. These window seats offer a cozy spot to admire outdoor views, read a book or just relax with your morning coffee. A great way to start beautifying this serene alcove is to pick the right cushions for the space. Renewal by Andersen® of Oklahoma shares four tips on choosing the perfect cushions for your bay or bow window seat:
1. Decide Between Pre-Made or Custom
Custom cushions are your best choice, especially if your bay or bow window seats have awkward angles and curves. Otherwise, you can look for a long, rectangular cushion and pillows in your local store to fill the gaps. Be sure that the cushion is not too high for the seat.
2. Keep Cushions Secure
Look for cushions that can be secured via ties or Velcro strips. This will ensure that cushions for your custom windows stay in place, making the seating area more comfortable.
3. Consider the Color Palette
You’ll want your cushions to complement the space’s color scheme, while also looking inviting and cozy. Light hues like soft gray and creamy white provide a neutral background for your pillows. On the other hand, trendy, vibrant prints add visual interest to the space. If your bay or bow window also doubles as a dining nook, opt for fabric colors that can hide dirt and stains.
4. Use Extra Textiles to Add Charm
Spruce up your seating nook with pillows, fabrics and other design accents. Pairing dark, neutral cushions with perky, colorful prints adds comfort and aesthetic appeal to the space. You can also install matching curtain panels for extra texture.
