sorry but I cant help with this question. I only built the cabinet. I am a cabinet maker, not a carpenter. A general contractor or carpenter can help you with your question. Sorry again and good luck.

Thank you. I am buying a bank own home, that has a great possible window seat. I need to take pictures and measurements . I think it is a lot higher.
I will post a picture soon.

This house I measure without a tape measure, and it is approximate 28 ". Is it too high ?

Love this window seat, but where do you place the heater? - Thank you!

The Heater can be placed on the wall behind it or underneath it! In this instance, the heater was forced air type so I have it venting out from the toe kick area. If it were on the wall radiating, I would have had to create some vent grilles on top.

sorry for the delay in answering your question. In regards to the window, I have no idea. I only do cabinet work.

Interiors by Melanie Robinson
I'm trying to envision the room as you mentioned. First of all, I LOVE the window seat~ how charming:) Have you ever considered arranging the room on an angle? Would that be possible? If you have a couple of chairs to add to the arrangement with the sofa? First move all furniture back and bring the area rug in at a 45-degree angle. Next, try bringing the sofa in on the short side angle of the rug. Do the same with the 2 chairs on opposite side. Add a coffee table and side tables, along with lamps,accessories. I know a photo would explain this so much better, and I will try to find one. The drawback is you will probably need an electrician to put some floor outlets in so the cords are not visual and strung across the floor.If you arrange that and tweak the chairs,sofa, and still don't like it, can you put the sofa on the left side of the room, pulled away from the wall, and add chairs across from it with each angled in? This time, try it with area rug straight, not angled. Just keep playing with it, while trying to keep in mind that the purpose of the room is probably a reading/watching tv area. I can see how this is a bit of a challenge, but I would just add panels to the windows, and a comfortable cushion & pillows to the window seat and let it be its own area.

Try taking the TV off the fireplace wall and put it on the side wall. Move the sofa to the opposite wall of the TV. Bring in 1 or 2 chairs and a small side or center table to flank the fireplace (maybe host or side chairs from the Dining room). Then fill the window seat with a seat cushion and pillows.

You have a custom cushion made for it, add throw pillows and it's done.
Just add a small table in front of it and perhaps a small chair and even a little area rug and you have a great, cozy seating area.

What you don't do is put a sofa in front of it like this photo - the window seat might as well not even be there...
