How to Create a Perfect Reading Nook
Nesting With Grace. We have a window seat and it seemed WAY too complicated to attempt ourselves. Until my brother-in-law showed us how it easy it was! This is a follow up post to that post. It is true. I actually think after watching my brother-in-law complete this I could actually duplicate it. And a huge thank you to him, he is teaching all of us so much!
Turn unused space around the house into extra seating and storage with a minimum of carpentry—and get a snug, homey haven for daydreaming, reading, even napping. It's no wonder window seats are often the most loved element in a home. They offer comfort—especially with a thick cushion on top—and views to the outdoors. They create a sense of coziness and security, thanks to the niche that defines a window seat. And they provide extra storage when fitted with drawers, cabinets, or a simply hinged bench top.
Whether you live alone or in a lively collective setting, a space devoted to reading and reflection would be welcome to most. For kids it can even just be a little corner they can call their own and create their own creative little world.

Window benches with storage offer charm and character to a room, make it appear airy, and give you extra space to keep stuff. Not only does this piece of furniture make the window the focal point of your room, but it also turns the otherwise unused floor space into a useful area. They are sturdy. The padding gives it a sophisticated look. And, if you decide to amp up the look, you can do so with cushions and pillows of your choice. Some storage benches are flip top with a box under the seat to store things.
