Sorry we don't understand your question. Are you referring to the heater vent?

Love this idea, my windows are too high for window seats (I thought).. but this is a great solution.

i have a 2 story home. the stairway is open and the treads and handrail are stained oak to match the living room floor and the risers are white. the living room walls are painted a sage green.the original staircase was closed in with spindles that continued to the second level bedroom all were stained a dark mahogany which i stripped and redid in oak. i am currently redoing the upper levelbedroom and will since the upper floor is semi open and i am painting it a light tan with white trim i am wondering if i should paint the spindles white and strip top rail and stain it to match the handrail coming up the stairs

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Off the Beaten Path: Delightful Alcove Spaces
This alcove is also a perch. Built for a small child, another place to watch the world go by, curl up with a book or take a nap. Certainly a nice place for a time out.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Cuddly Nooks for Every Room
An alcove way up high. Who says window seats have to be chair-level? Climbing a short ladder up to this fun window seat separates you from everyone and everywhere else. I would feel like a little bird perched in my nest.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 10 Elements of the Just-Right House
Even in the most unlikely of places.
Laura Gaskill added this to Carve Out a Neat Little Nook
Accessible only by ladder, this reading nook is a magical spot where kids or grownups can get lost in a book. And just think how easily this sliver of space could have been forgotten. Instead of being filled with dusty decor, it is a useful sitting spot, complete with bookshelves.“All of us hate wasted space, and if you have a nook with no charm and no usefulness, it usually ends up being a repository for castoffs,” says Williams. “Boxes that never made it to the attic, clothes you’ve been meaning to donate, the exercise bike that you were definitely going to use every day … those things love nooks, too.”The lesson? Come up with a purpose for your nook. And make it as inviting as possible.Aim High: What to Know About Adding a Library Ladder
“… you may find that your nook becomes one of your favorite spots in the house.” — Laura GaskillI’m a big nook fan, but I’d never thought of some of the clever solutions nooks can solve; in this article they are rounded up in the same place. Gaskill shows us how to create a mini-mudroom with a nook in an entryway, a tucked-away desk space in a bedroom that won’t affect your sleep, a mini command central in a kitchen, a cozy space for a child’s bed and more. Full story: Carve Out a Neat Little NookDid something you saw on Houzz strike a chord with you this week? Please share it with us in the Comments section.
