    I have a heat vent right against the wall in the middle of the bay window. How do I accommodate that?

      You create a long narrow "box" with a heat vent deflector inside, pointed out to the front of the storage unit. Find a vent cover to dress it up & allow the heat to go out into the room.

    Yes I'd like to do this. However I would like a freestanding not attached to the wall. Also, Put a draw in the middle with a metal pullout for bigger, heaver items. I would like to change the front to match the rest of the room.

    I would love to do this! Would I extend a cold air return the same way as suggested for the heat vent?
