3 Window Seat Design Tips Interior Designers Want You to Know, Homes & Gardens

Homes & Gardens asked interior designer Tara Benet about window seats, one of the latest design trends sweeping the home decor scene. “Window seats are an attractive way to integrate hidden storage,” said Benet, whose minimalist design philosophy primes her to see potential ways to declutter in every facet of a room. Benet believes that window seats are great for all kinds of spaces, though she emphasizes that the need for hidden storage is especially right “for certain spaces such as playrooms, where there is lots of clutter that needs to be stowed away.” Window seat cushions present an opportunity to add a pop of color and texture to a space, building depth via simple fabric choices.
