Everything You Need to Know About Creating a Window Seat
Window seats are becoming more and more popular on the Gold Coast every day. And why wouldn’t it be so? Window seats are often the escape some people crave in a busy world. There isn’t a better place to kick back, relax and do some reading than in your very own corner of the universe. But building a window seat can be quite tricky. That’s why the team here at Foam World has put together this handy blog post on everything you need to know about creating a window seat.
There are mainly three types of window seats, namely: shelf, box and cabinetry. Shelf types are usually designed like shelves as their name suggests and have storage areas under the seat. Box types look like boxes obviously, and provide more of an enclosed feel. On the other hand, cabinetry types are modular units with doors and drawers.
There are lots of materials to choose from when it comes to the frame of the window seat. You can opt to use hardwood, plywood, MDF or maybe even kitchen cabinetry. This will largely depend on the functionality and location. In terms of the covering, try using outdoor fabric. This will ensure your window seat will handle sunlight and potential foot traffic well.
This is perhaps the most important aspect of your window seat. If your mattress or foam isn’t comfy, it sort of defeats the purpose of having a window seat. Luckily for you, Foam World can produce comfortable foams cut to size for your window seat.
The place where you put your window seat is very important as that will have an effect on the “feel” of the window seat. A kitchen window seat is a great idea for a spot to relax and chill out in while you’re waiting for something to cook. A window seat in your entryway can create a welcoming ambience. On the flipside, a window seat in your living room can ensure extra seating space for your guests. These are only a few options, but you can put a window seat virtually anywhere there is a window. The choice is yours!
