A custom window seat can be skillfully designed to fit in unique spaces in your home. These are ideal because no two homes are exactly identical. A custom window seat is the only way to fit high-quality seating area around your window.

Unique Homes

Homes are full of differently shaped rooms, which isn't a problem when choosing furniture to fit in your home. However, when it comes to finding a window seat, you are unlikely to buy one off the showroom floor that will fit. No two homes have the exact same size windows and so custom designed window seats are required.

Custom window seat designs can make sure that all of the available space around your window is used to provide the best seating experience possible. Padding could also be fixed to the walls to make it even more comfortable to rest against.

Unique Design

Everybody wants something different from their window seat. Some people just want to have extra seating areas in their home, while others need it to be mounted over the top of a radiator. Some people want extra storage space included in the design. Custom window seat designs can include cabinets or shelving underneath.

Another option is to designs the window seat to convert into a desk by removing the top cushion. Window seats are very flexible pieces of furniture which can be converted into virtually anything.


Custom window seat designs also make it possible to choose various fabric designs for the cushions. This makes it possible to tie the design into other parts of your room which should make it fit in much better.

There are many different fabric options available, including leather, cotton and various other fabrics. Man-made fibres are some of the most popular types of fabric used for window seats because they are so affordable. It's important to make sure that you are choosing the right fabric for the job. If you have pets or young children, certain types of material may not be suitable.

Materials like leather will create a posher look, however, working with leather will be much more difficult.

Designing Your Own Window Seat

You don't need to pay a professional to design your own window seat for you; you can do all of this work yourself. If you measure the space you have available for the window seat, you should be able to plan your own seat.

You will be able to consider the use of different materials, fabrics and designs. There are plenty of designs on the Internet which can be customised to your individual requirements very easily. The easiest option might be to construct storage units and then fix a seat to the top of these cabinets. Flat packed cabinets are even suitable for this.

Window seats can be customised and made to suit any purpose. Spend time doing this properly and you will get a very comfortable and stylish window seat for all to enjoy.
