The Ins & Outs of Bay Windows

21 March 2016

It’s no secret that the presence of natural light is an instant mood booster.  An ample amount of windows within your home can create a peaceful environment, especially if you have an enviable view.  Therefore, it should come as little surprise that bay windows are one of the most popular styles within the marketplace.  This is because they allow in generous amounts of sunlight & can showcase a home’s landscape.  Here’s what you need to know about the inclusion of this type of window within your home.

What They Are: Bay windows consist of a sizable window that does not open with smaller windows on each side that both open and shut.

Why Homeowners Love Them:

Increased Resale Value: Bay windows will make a room feel more sizable, a trait that home buyers are frequently willing to pay a premium for.

Daylighting: An abundance of light within a room positively changes the area’s entire dynamic.  You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better way to do this than with a bay window.

All-Encompassing View: The enormity of bay windows makes them ideal for highlighting picturesque scenery.

Sophistication: The incorporation of bay windows within your home allows you to embellish a room with refined features, such as designer drapes & curtains.

Worth Considering:

Upkeep: By their very nature, bay windows have a more sizable glass surface than other styles, which means that keeping them clean can be a tedious task.  This is particularly true when children and pets are part of the equation.

Installation: Rarely is this a project that an amateur should attempt; special care must be taken to ensure that bay windows are installed properly.  Without this, your home can be vulnerable to structural problems, such as sagging.

Price: Bay windows are oftentimes more extensive than other styles because they have more glass.  That, coupled with the fact, that an experienced professional should be hired to perform the project, all adds to its final cost.
