You can enlarge the sill (depth-wise) on a low window so it becomes more of a substantial shelf. It then doubles as a long end table for nearby chairs while conserving floor space. If the view is spectacular, people want to walk right up to the window for the full effect. I would not opt for deep shelf units underneath unless storage is a dire need or the view is unremarkable.
