Benefits of Bay Windows

Written on: June 13th, 2014 BY IN Windows

If you need new windows for your home, you have many different considerations to think about—and the style is one of the most important ones. When it comes to window styles, you have a lot of options.

Perhaps you’re considering bay windows, which are popular for all types of homes. These windows project outward from a home’s exterior and are typically picture (fixed-pane) windows flanked by two or more smaller windows, usually casement or double-hung. Picture windows don’t open or close, which means they allow less air leakage and are more energy-efficient.

What Are the Advantages of Installing Bay Windows?

Bay windows offer a number of benefits. They:

  • Add unique architecture to any home’s exterior – bay windows are often used solely for aesthetics! They stand out more so than other types of windows.
  • Can help increase the market value of your home – bay windows can help improve the curb appeal and resale value of your home.
  • Help brighten any space – if a room in your home is dim, installing a bay window is a great way to let in natural light and brighten the space.
  • Offer expansive views – you can use bay windows to highlight your landscaping; they are bigger than other windows and offer beautiful, expansive views.

Bow Windows

Bow windows—similar to bay windows and typically including four or more window units in a radial or bow formation—also offer the same aesthetic and lighting benefits. If you want windows that are rounder in shape, consider bow windows.
