What Houzz contributors are saying:
A bench built into a bay window will typically have an angled shape that doesn’t allow for a full width of standard rectangular drawers. In this case, the choice comes down to a flip-up top or a smaller set of drawers. The option that allows easier access is usually the more practical option — otherwise you might not ever bother to take out those items you’ve stored.
Kitchen. What kitchen would not benefit from a large window like this, letting in natural light all day long? Notice that although the ceiling of the bay is separate, the bay does have its own walls. This indicates that structure needed to be addressed. But with the structural changes, the homeowners gained extra storage; note the drawers designed into the window seat.
