A windowsill is incomplete without decoration. The windowsill is the covering of the parapet along the sill of window frames. Originally, the windowsill was really intended as a bench by the window. This also explains why it is so named. But nowadays it is also a place where you can place nice decorative objects. Of course it also depends on what space it is and how big the windowsill is. Different decoration ideas are possible for every size and for every room. We show the best!
1. Windowsill sofa
The windowsill is actually intended as a bench by the window. And although nowadays there are also many other nice decoration ideas to dress up the windowsill, you can still see the windowsill often used as a sofa. This is a super nice idea for the living room or kitchen, but such a seat can also be very nice in the bedroom. Make it cozy and comfortable by placing seat cushions and nice decorative cushions.
2. Plants on the windowsill
Plants like the sun. And where is there more sun in the house than at the window? Right, on the windowsill! This is also the main reason why it is a good idea to decorate the windowsill with nice plants. Especially when it comes to a narrow windowsill, nice plants are a great idea. Use nice pots and combine different plants and cacti to create a nice urban jungle in your home.
3. Windowsill as a bookshelf
If you are a real bookworm, you will never have enough storage space for your book collection. It is therefore a nice idea to use the windowsill as a bookshelf. Just like a real bookshelf, you can create stacks of books or place books vertically next to each other. Of course you could combine this.
4. Windowsill as a showcase
A showcase is always a good idea at home. This is a cupboard with an open character, where you can place various nice decorative objects. This is often a mix of different objects, such as books, plants, pots, frames, candlesticks, you name it. On the one hand this is functional, but on the other hand it is also very decorative.
Herbal vegetable garden on the windowsill
Do you like fresh herbs? Create your own herbal vegetable garden on the windowsill. The windowsill near the kitchen is of course the most ideal, because you have all the fresh herbs within reach, but it is also not a bad idea to use the living room windowsill for this. Isn’t it great to have fresh basil, coriander, oregano, dill, rosemary and rush every day ?! You can place the pots with fresh herb plants on the windowsill, but you can also hang them up.
6. Shelf on windowsill
Window sills can be finished in different ways. Some windowsills are tiled, others are plastered tightly. Don’t you like the finish of your windowsill? Good news, because you can easily refinish it with the help of a plank. These can be different boards. A wooden shelf, a tree trunk shelf, a marble shelf, you name it. Don’t you think your windowsill is big enough? Then take a shelf that is slightly deeper than the windowsill.
7. Extra window sill space with clamping boards
Do you still not have enough space, and do you want to create more space near the windowsill? You could do that with clamping boards. These are boards that you can clamp to the windowsill. Below you can see the super nice round clamping boards from Navet Sthlm. They are available here !
8. Windowsill workplace
Because it is always wonderfully light at the windowsill, it can also be a very good idea to set up a workplace there. If you don’t need a lot of space, you could use the windowsill. You could of course create more space with a deeper shelf. If you want to turn it into a fully-fledged workplace, you could also think of a wall desk , which you make on the windowsill as a kind of extension.
9. Windowsill lounge for cat or cat
Do you have a cat or a cat, and are you looking for a comfortable lounge area where the cat or cat can relax? The windowsill is the ideal place, because it is especially nice and warm there. You can make your own board, but there are also special windowsill beds for sale.
10. Children’s room window sill decoration
The above windowsill ideas are nice for the living room, bathroom, kitchen or bedroom, but for the nursery they are a lot less interesting. For the nursery it is much more fun to place toys or fun children’s books, for example!
