Bay windows are windows that project out from the walls of a building and form a bay in the room they are located in. A traditional bay window has three windows. They are placed at an angle, often 30 to 45 degrees from the house’s wall. The center window is fixed and about 50% larger than the flankers. These windows project out from the house by a number of inches, depending on the projection angle.
Bay windows are particularly attractive as they make a room feel bigger and brighter. This style of window is perfect for smaller bedrooms, breakfast nooks, reading areas, and hallways, as well as areas where you want extra seating or storage.
While bay windows can add a touch of elegance to any space, they’re not suited for every home. You’ll have to consider a number of factors, including construction costs, climate, and local building regulations. BGV’s expert consultants can help you determine if bay windows are right for your home.
