A bay window is a common feature to find on both new and historic homes and has a high level of appeal because of its beautiful style and design. When you’re building a new home or in the process of remodeling your current property, you may be researching what types of windows to install. If you want to boost the quality of the property, there are a few reasons why your home needs a bay window.
1. Increased Curb Appeal
The classy design of bay windows can set the style of your home’s exterior and allow it to look more attractive instead of traditional windows. It can draw more attention to a specific area of the house and create an upscale look.
2. More Natural Light
Due to the size of bay windows, they allow more natural light into the room during the day. This can allow you to create a well-lit setting in your office to avoid using lights and lamps in the space. The window can cut down on your energy bill and will allow you to rely less on artificial lights.
You can even obtain more ventilation if you choose a bay window with moveable windows to ensure there’s more airflow. Opening both windows will make it easier to have a breeze you funnel into the room. Opening one of the windows will allow you to avoid wind gusts.
3. Create an Extra Seating Area
The unique design of bay windows creates an extra seating area where you can lounge around and rest while spending time indoors. The bench that is included with bay windows creates a comfortable seating area that will offer a serene and relaxing place to sit and enjoy the outside views.
4. It Fits Any Type of Room
Bay windows are extremely versatile, which means you can install them in any room of the home and complement the space. The built-in window and seating area can be added to a dining room to create a cozy breakfast nook that allows more people to sit at the table. The window can also be added to a living room to give you a spectacular view of the backyard and enhance the aesthetics of the interior setting.
It can also add more square feet in the room when contractors replace a flat window with a bay window. The wall will be bumped out by an average of 36 inches for more interior space. The new window can be topped with a roof skirt or built under an eave.
5. Enjoy the View
Due to the view that’s provided in bay windows, you can enjoy getting a better look at the outdoor setting, which can enhance the appeal of the indoor environment. You can place the bay window in a bedroom or your office that faces the backyard or a garden in the front of the house.
