Window benches are designed to fit in front of windows. Window benchec are a great addition to your rooms. They can also provide additional storage,which is also a smart idea. Window benches also can be built in several ways. For instance, the window bench does not have to take up space that could be used for storing items. If a window bench and shelf are combined into one piece, the bench will serve two purposes. The bench will be built to the most comfortable height for a bench, and instead of the front being covered and empty space boxed up and unused, the front of the bench can be left open to use for storage of books or other trinkets. A simple but tiny curtain rod installed along the top of the bench shelf space will allow objects in the shelf to be covered and hid.
