Convert to built-in seating
Sitting on a chair with a book is so passé. Lounge by the bay window instead by plumping up with cushions and adding seat padding to let you bask in the sunlight or enjoy the city lights.

Create more storage or display space
Go for low cubbyhole cabinets, or tall display cabinets that slide, hide, or rotate. Especially useful for rooms without much of a view.

Create more storage, display, even desk space
While not literally a storage, this homeowner jazzed up the area to make the bay window less of an eyesore by doubling it up as a display unit for her bag collection. She also added a built-in desk with drawers that can be used for working, doing makeup etc.

Sleep on it
Got a good view from the bedroom? Extend the area and build a platform bed above it. A more functional approach would be to add storage facility under the bed extension.
