Bay windows are in the same category as bow windows. The primary difference between the two styles is that bay windows feature only 3 individual panels, two jutting out from the main wall at an angle and one connecting those horizontally.
They add a small amount of extra space to a home’s interior that makes a big impact. Bay windows allow for full light and an extended view to the home’s exterior. Ideal for a window seat, these window solutions are beautiful and classic.
Depending on your needs, a bay window design can be customized in many different ways. You may choose to include a window seat or include multiple types of windows in the construction. A very common design includes a stationary picture window in the center with two double hung windows on either side. Alternatively, a bay window may include casement windows that can be opened through a side hinge or awning windows that can be cracked open from the bottom.
Bay windows have been popular in residence designs for hundreds of years, but modern designs can accommodate any style preference. All bay windows are distinguished by their angular protrusions from a building rather than a curvature. The degree of the angles may shift depending on the space, with common angles at a degree of 15, 30 and 45.
Modern technology has made these windows very energy efficient. Whichever window design combination you choose for your bay windows, you can rest easy knowing that the choice will help maintain airflow in your home when open and protect your home from the elements and lost heating and cooling when closed.
