I love the bay window! - I love this bay window. We are building something similar. The window are supposed to be 7' tall and the center window 5' wide. Angled windows are 7' tall and 2' wide. I'm worried it might be too tall and skinny. What are the dimensions of this center window? could you include a full picture of the windows and seat from top to bottom? Thanks!!

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.

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.

Please help with couch placement in a room with a window seat - We have a beautiful window seat and I do not know where to put the couch except infront of it due to the layout in the room. I was looking thru your photos and the one that has the couch infront of the window S.A.N design group, confirmed what I felt that the couch should not go in front of the window. Does anyone have any other recommendations. The window seat is directly across from the fireplace and the tv is mounted on top of the fireplace. The entrance to the room is on the right wall and left wall and then to the right of the fireplace is the entrance to the dining room. We live in an old victorian house. Thank you so much!

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...
