Bay windows are a beautiful addition to any home, but did you know they serve practical purposes too? Understanding the benefits of bay windows can help get your creativity flowing and give you ideas for how you want your home to look and feel, inside and out. The home improvement professionals at Garden State Brickface and Siding are well-versed in bay window installation and love the attractive, unique flair they bring to any home.
What Is A Bay Window?
Bay windows are a combination of three windows that protrude from your home at an angle. The middle window is typically a large window, flanked by two side windows. This distinctive shape gives bay windows a stunning three-dimensional look, and can act as a focal point of a room.
Installing bay windows can:
Let More Light In
Not only do bay windows offer a gorgeous panoramic view of the outside, they allow natural light to pour in. Because of their angled design, light can flow from multiple directions, making a room brighter than it would be with traditional flat replacement windows. Letting the sun shine in helps keep your home warmer and more energy efficient in the winter. Being able to soak up more rays indoors can also lift your spirits and make those frigid New Jersey winters a little more bearable.
Make A Room Feel More Spacious
Bay windows make a room feel larger and more open than it actually is. Because bay windows protrude from the outside of your home, they create an illusion of spaciousness. This can be especially beneficial if your house is small or you want a particular room to look more open and airy. Depending on how far you want your bay window to protrude, you can choose 30, 45, 60, or 90-degree angles.
Add A Window Seat
Dreaming of a cozy reading nook to call your own? Well, a bay window fits the bill. It’s easy to install a seat at the base of bay windows where you can spend quiet moments enjoying the view or curling up with a favorite book. If you choose a trunk or shelf design, you’ll also have a new spot to tuck away toys, blankets, pillows, games, or anything you’d like. Or instead of a seat, you could put a desk or small table in from of a bay window and create an attractive work space that won’t make you feel boxed in.
Because they have multiple windows at different angles you can enjoy a nice breeze from more than one direction. This circulates air through the room (and your home) for better ventilation.
Boost Curb Appeal
Installing a bay window is a great way to give improve curb appeal, and may even add value to your home. Its elegant design and expansive glass can give your home a clean, sophisticated look. Bay windows also add pizazz to the interior of your home and make rooms look much larger, which is a plus for potential homebuyers.
Bay Windows Are Versatile And Add Style To Your Home
Bay windows come in several different angles and there are lots of designs and configurations to choose from. Whether you’re thinking of putting a bay window in the living room, bedroom, or kitchen, they look great almost anywhere. If you’ve already decided to update the exterior of your home with new siding, brickface, or stucco, adding bay windows as part of the overall design can really make your house pop.
