6 Ways To Decorate & Dress Your Window Sills!

Unfortunately, too many times we forget the details of our house. Small nooks and crannies don’t get paid any attention to and parts of the home go bare. Window sills are one of those places. Which is a shame since there are so many wonderful, adorable ways to decorate them!!

Check out these 6 ways to decorate and dress up your window sills … and have them become more stylish than ever in just one afternoon!

1. Create a reading nook.

Are the ledges of your window sill wide enough to hold a book? If so, you’ve got a perfect place to create a small, adorable reading nook. Add pillows for comfort and ease and maybe even a light for some evening skimming. This is such a relaxed, romantic way to dress up a larger window sill and of course, a prize for the avid reader and lover of the written word.

2. Create a tiny garden.

Showcase your green thumb with beautiful, small plants in different types of canisters. Tea cans, mason jars, glass bottles or even some old fashioned pots … there are so many possibilities. Add pretty, delicate and bright flowers or even some kitchen herbs to create an organic, natural beauty spot for your home.

3. Create something eclectic and artsy.

Maybe you can’t decide what to make your window sill become. Maybe you’ve got a lot of nick-knacks that have gone unused. Create something eclectic and interesting by adding it all together and forming a mish-mash of beautiful, wonderful things that represent you.

4. Create instant romance.

Your window sills become instantly more romantic by adding some candles … and lighting them in the evening hours. More light will come through and the glow will be perfect for a relaxing evening or rainy day.

5. Create a seat.

If you have the room, or even if you create the room …. make your window sill a place to take a load off and have a seat. Add a bench or add a pillow (if your ledge is big enough), the natural light and view is always better than staring at the TV screen or wall.

6. Create storage space.

If you’ve got an unused window sill in your craft room or home office, use it as storage! Don’t let the space go to waste. Add folders, boxes or jars of “stuff” to dress up the window and utilize the room for your own sanity and organization!
