Bay windows make a big statement. As opposed to standard windows which are constructed from one piece of glass, bay windows are typically constructed from 3-5 main glass sections fitted together at 30 to 90 degree angles from each other. They can be opened from both top and sides. Pacific Home and Patio would like to share our top 5 reasons to add a bay window to your home.
- Space: Bay windows instantly add the illusion of more space to any room. The projection of the glass is much more interesting to the eye than a typical flat wall with a flat picture window. Interestingly, bay windows also add the illusion of space when viewed from the outside as well.
- Light/Circulation: The multiple panels of glass in a bay window allow light to enter a room at different angles. This adds substantially more light to a room than a traditional window. The result is a warm and welcoming room that feels brighter and more open. The angles of the windows, when open, also allow air to enter from multiple directions increasing circulation and comfort of your room.
- Storage: Bay windows are a natural place to add a storage bench in a room. In a living room, this storage area can be filled with pillows and blankets. Toy storage is a great benefit to adding a bay window to a child’s room.
- Cozy space: The storage bench can be upholstered and accented with pillows and blankets to make a perfect reading corner. Windows can also be used as a greenhouse space in the home as the light from the window makes an ideal growing space.
- Resale: Bay windows are very attractive and can increase the resale value of your home. By making your room seem larger and more inviting, a bay window adds appeal with potential buyers.
