One of the best ways to make the most of your bay or bow windows is to create a seating nook where you can sit, relax and enjoy the beautiful outdoor view. However, it’s also an element that can be challenging to decorate. To style this spot, it’s essential to pick cushions that fit your needs and preferences. Renewal by Andersen® of Austin shares some tips below:
Look for Heavy-Duty Fabrics
When it comes to your cushions, you’ll want a fabric that won’t wear out too fast and won’t pull easily. Apart from that, it’s essential to think about the function of the seat and the people in your home. If you’re using the space as a dining nook, for instance, you may opt for a material that can be quickly cleaned or is dark-colored so dirt and stains don’t show easily. Leather, for instance, may be a great choice if you have kids as it can be wiped clean, but not if you have pets that may scratch it.
Consider the Color Scheme
Your cushion should blend well with the space’s color palette and looks comfortable to snug in. Lighter colors like white and beige offer a muted background for your vibrant throw pillows and other design accents. Conversely, trendy prints and bright, solid-colored cushions create a striking focal point for the space. You can choose matching curtains for your custom windows for extra texture.
Keep the Cushions Secure
If the surface of your window seat is bare or smooth, the cushion may slip or move around too much. You can stick Velcro adhesives to the undersides of your cushion to keep it in place or look for cushions that come with ties.
