A window seat is an underrated element in many homes—if we ever have one, we usually take it for granted and never bother with maximizing its potential. In reality, however, this small sofa seat plays a huge role in transforming your home from being mediocre to upscale in an instant. To help you embrace the beauty of this unique architectural feature, we've put together a few ideas that will make it easy for you read, nap, chat, or simply sit and gaze outside: 

If you're the type who goes for function over style, a simple and minimalist-inspired window seat will do. Achieve this look by keeping the design basic, sticking to light hues and avoiding statement accessories.

RL Tip: If you'd like to add an unexpected pop of color, try painting the window frames in a cool-toned color to maintain the vibe you're going for. 

Can you imagine waking up in the morning, making yourself a cup of coffee and sitting on this beauty as you get ready for the day? Not only does a window seat in the kitchen make a great breakfast nook, it's also a clever way of adding extra seating if you like entertaining guests in your cooking corner.
