Windows make for absolutely perfect display areas in your home. It’s no wonder you see so many homemakers showcasing something of theirs in a huge, beautiful bay window. And everything always just seems so perfectly placed, well thought out, and almost as if the window was specifically made to hold those very items.
It’s one of the reasons I find myself wanting a house with a bay window a few years down the road. Whether you use it for a reading nook, make it your cat’s own personal space, or decorate it with something you enjoy collecting, it’s a great place to personalize and make your own so that you can show off your personality and make your home extra cute.
If you’re struggling for ideas on what you should put in your own window displays, look no further than our compiled ideas below.
There are quite a few people out there that claim to be tea and coffee enthusiasts. What better way to walk the walk than putting on display all of your different teas or coffees? You can even include different pots (decorative or functional), cute place mats, different mugs you have, and even other specialized items that go along with your collection. Perhaps you have a french press machine that’s more for display than it is using. Maybe you’ve got a legit matcha set for your favorite Japanese style tea.
Okay, maybe library isn’t the word. But a window display full of books sounds like a dream come true to me. Bay windows often have little shelves going up the sides, so putting your favorite mystery thrillers, cookbooks, manuals, and self improvement books in these slots would be perfect for the display. Throw down a little pad or two on the bay window seat for a comfy place to sit and read your books.
This is probably my personal favorite on this list. No matter what house plants you own and what pots they’re in, there’s no better place for a collection of greenery than right by a window. They get the sunlight they need and you get the perfect place to showcase your collection of rare, beautiful, and weird plants. I myself already have a window display of all my succulents. I could only wish that it was a bay window instead! Some day when I own my own house and can afford to put in a bay window, you better believe I’ll have all my succulents on display right there.
