Window Seating and Secret Storage

Yes, me again - with the built-ins....but this time I want a built in window seat with storage to either side.

Sullivan Conard Architects traditional family room

And super stealth storage underneath....

Bench and Mantel traditional family room

The other option would be drawers underneath....

window seat with GREAT pillows and color  family room

Great Room traditional family room

But drawers seem much more complicated to build, no?

Whats your vote?  Stealth storage underneath or visible drawers?


  1. I think it depends what you want to store in them! If it's things you won't be using frequently, I'd choose the stealth storage. But if you're going to store things you use often, drawers would be more convenient!

  2. Drawers! :) Sorry for the stalking, I am catching up on, like, a month of posts :)

  3. I agree with Holly. It you won't use it often then go for stealth. But drawers would probably be used most often and don't require rearranging the pillows and such on top (can you tell I'm lazy?:P).
