Examining Your Bay Window Options

1 min read

Adding bay windows can add light to a room, increase the overall size of the room, and create a new space in which you and your guests can relax. Bay windows differ widely in their design, size, and features. If you are considering adding bay windows to your home, read this article to get a better idea of the options offered at Window World.

Space Shape

Bay windows are built onto the outside of the house, forming a small space with three windows or more. You can choose a square, round, or polygonal shape for your bay window space. If you are going for a traditional look, ask your window installer to construct bay windows with traditional 90-135-150 interior angles.

Variations

If you do not want a traditional bay window, you may want to install a box bay window, bow window, or circle bay window. Box bay windows form a box shape with 90-degree angles, and are very popular additions to kitchens. Bow windows and circle bay windows are curved versions of the bay window, and both add more light and present a more unified look.

Style

Bay windows began appearing in homes during the English Renaissance. When they reached America, they first became popular on the West Coast during the gold rush period. Whether you’re going for a more classic bay window installation or a modern one, a reputable window store will have what you’re looking for.

Protection

To enhance your bay windows while providing protection from insects and energy loss, Window World offers several important options. You might get ClimaTech Insulated Glass for improved insulation, and full or half fiberglass screens to enjoy ventilation while keeping insects out.
