Built-in Seating

Built-in seating creates a cozy corner. - Design Ideas from Exciting Windows By Mini Blind King in Anchorage, AK



Add extra seating and storage


Built-in seating feels cozy and inviting – and it can be very versatile, providing not just an additional place to sit, but additional display space for pillows or even storage underneath. It can maximize space in a tight area or create a new casual place to read, have a meal, chat, or just look out the window.

Built-in seating can be manufactured to complement almost any building style. It can be upholstered or not; it can have simple and straight lines or lots of detail; it can have seat backs or not; it can have closed shelving inside, open shelving or no storage at all.

where to add built-in seating


Best of all, built-in seating can go almost anywhere in your home:

– Most popular, in a breakfast room or kitchen, for added places at the casual family dining table
– In the window of a bedroom or living room, to create a lovely place to daydream and view the outdoors
– In the den or home office, for a quiet space to talk on the phone, answer emails or respond to texts
– In the foyer, to put on shoes and socks, and drop off your stuff when you come in the door, but do watch for clutter!
