How to Get the Perfect Window Seat Cushion

Without a good cushion, any window seat is just a waste of space. You should spend a lot of time conceptualizing the design of this furniture to get it right but never forget about the comfort of the seat itself.

How to Get the Perfect Window Seat Cushion

Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta explains how you can have the perfect cushion for your bay and bow window seats.

Use Store-Bought Cushions as a Foundation

When it comes to windows as well as hinged and sliding patio doors, customization is an excellent idea. Seats, however, may not necessarily require made-to-order upholstery.

Regardless of the size and shape of your window seats, there is nothing wrong with buying mass-produced cushions. The trick is to find a product that matches the dimensions of the seat, but gaps can be dealt with, as we’ll see. 

Think About Usage

Much like when comparing exterior doors, understand how you will use the seats when exploring fabrics. For instance, select a material immune to stain or spillage if you are going to use the seat as an eating nook. High-maintenance pieces of furniture can be a pain.

Velcro the Bottom

The base of window seats are usually bare and smooth, which may cause the cushions to slip or move when in use. To secure them, use Velcro tape. Make sure you know how to remove the adhesive properly before you install the tape to avoid damaging the seat surface.

Fill the Gaps With Extras

To fill the empty spaces in the seats and to introduce more layers of comfort to the primary cushion, add pillows. From an aesthetic perspective, it is a wonderful opportunity to lend more character to window seats.
