It’s so nice to sit on the window-sill, drink coffee and read favorite book watching the world outside. Yes, an ordinary window-sill can become a sofa, your working place and even a library.
Often the design of the window space is restricted only by flower pots and beautiful curtains. But there are many ways to turn the window-sill into a functional and original interior detail.
The simplest way to use the sill is to put your favorite things, collections and souvenirs. But don’t go overboard as it can turn into a sloppy store of mixed items.
You can use the sill as a working place as well. This is especially comfortable if your house doesn’t have free space for a full-fledged private office.
A cupboard-sill or a locker-sill is a great idea for storing various things: from cosmetics to canned fruits and vegetables. Put cabinets or sliding-door cupboard under the window and you’ll see how much useful space you have to store necessary things.
It’s so nice to sit on this small sofa being surrounded by favorite books! Just stretch out your hand, take a book, lean back comfortably on cushions – that’s it!
It is a great pleasure to wash dishes watching the world outside. You can install this kind of a sink-sill in your kitchen or bathroom.
Wide window-sill is also great as a hubble-bubble area.
But even a small sill can be cozy and functional.
In a nursery it can become a perfect game area. You can store toys, books and plasticine in boxes at the window. Cover the sill with a bright mattress and it will become a place for reading or rest. Clost the space under the window by fabric and make a puppet show or a garage for a toy autopark there.
If you have pets, think about them when designing the window area. They love sitting on the sill to wait for you to come home and watch the street. Put a piece of artificial fur or a small mattress. Your canine friend will be happy about personal square centimeters that it mustn’t share with flower pots.
