Window Seat Plans

A window seat is an attractive addition to any room and adds seating and storage in one great package. Choose free window seat plans and customize them to fit your space.

Children's rooms, den or family rooms are all popular areas for window seat plans. Use plywood or MDF to create budget seating and decorate with cheery paint.




Add style to a room with hardwoods and stain to create an elegant reading nook that is stylish and functional.

Use ready-made cushions or sew customized cushions to fit your new seat, using fabrics to complement your room. Window seats provide storage for children's toys and sports equipment, sewing supplies and bulky items. There are many versions from which to choose, including portable and paneled styles. The additional cubbies included on one style are perfect for the kid's room.
