A cozy window seat: Get the look at a fraction of the price

Snow day! Snuggle up with a great book. Cozy window seats are the ultimate spots for winter dreaming.


The best place to snuggle up on a blustery, snowy day? A cozy window seat!

If your home isn’t blessed with an original window seat, you can still get this charming look. It’s easy to fake it.

For example, Just Cabinets offers some lovely (but affordable) bookcases in a variety of heights. Center a small loveseat under the window, flank with bookcases and… voila. Instant charm.

If you’re looking for a more built-in look, bookcases can be mounted to the wall. Use cabinets for the seat. And, finish the entire space with wood trim. It’s a built-in at a fraction of the price of custom woodworking. The DIY Network offers a tutorial with simple, easy to follow steps.

Accessories complete the picture. Don’t forget to add a small table (for cocoa, naturally), a warm throw, plushy pillows, and of course, loads and loads of wonderful books. It’s the ideal spot for dreaming on a snowy day like today.
