Renovation: How to turn a bay window into a desk or vanity

If you think the bay windows or deep window ledges that come with the newer flats and apartments are a waste of space, you can actually make use of them and turn them into something more functional!

Bay windows are often seen as a wasted "feature", and lots of homeowners don't know what to do with it. However there are ways to utilise this deep ledge or window seat to suit a variety of purposes. 

Build on top of it to create additional usable surfaces, such as a desk or vanity. For a built-in desk, customise the table such that it extends outwards beyond the edge of the bay window to ensure enough legroom while you sit at the desk.

Also, to achieve the standard desk height (750mm), add a row of drawers below the desk top for useful storage.
