Our house has three large (2.5m wide x 1.2m deep) bay windows upstairs. One in each of the bedrooms. The size allowed us to use them as a space for a bed, a desk, a sofa, a TV and gaming console recess, grand-kids paraphernalia and even a mattress, pillow and bed linen etc, storage area when our daughter and partner moved back in for two years while their house was being built.

Never really used for their original design purpose - a window seat, although the sofa period came close.

The tip about securing cushions/mattresses to open seats is something I'll keep in mind when it comes to covering out window seats!
