    Carve out of cabinets Here’s a similar design, but this time the window doesn’t project out of the back of the house. Instead, the team at VC Design Architectural Serviceshave built storage around the glazed area.The cabinets are wide enough to form a seat in the window, with a couple of downlights above for evening reading. The bottom and right-hand surfaces are wood to signify the best way to sit for a view of the garden.

    Include a window seatThis design feature not only brings daily pleasure, it can also provide the same benefits as an overhang outside. “A couple of our projects have window seats,” Daniel says. “They’re quite deep, so you get views but not direct, bright sunlight.”

    Go all roundThe home office area of this contemporary extension has a built-in seat that overlooks the garden. The designer hasn’t just taken the traditional storage-below route, but surrounded the window with cupboards to keep the work area clutter-free. Repeat the look with push-to-open cupboard doors and spotlights above that highlight the feature.Smart ways to store paperwork and declutter your home office

    …or even to create one from scratch, especially if you’re extending the back of your house and creating new windows (see how this could work in the home office pictured above).
