While casement, double hung and single hung windows are staples in American homes, nothing steals the show like a well crafted bay window in a room. Bay Whether their purpose is practical utility in terms of lighting and space, or are purely an aesthetic feature, Bay Windows are as multidimensional in their benefits as they are physically! With A Pane in the Glass‘ longstanding experience, we explore some attributes bay windows can offer to your home.
Bay Window | The many benefits
Bay windows are characterized by protrusion of three panes from a wall—not to be confused with Bow windows, that have more than three window panes. Most commonly, the side panes are titled at 90, 135, or 150 degree angles from the center larger pane that is parallel to the wall. In this way a bay window offers a direct view outwards but also maximizes the natural light, by making use of indirect sunlight from the sides of the window. Thus, the windows are an excellent and much superior source of lighting compared to their 2 dimensional counterparts. Additionally, with multifaceted panes, these types of windows allow more options for ventilation interior spaces.
Of course, the advantages don’t end there. The protrusion allows a slight increase in the physical space of the room itself. This not only makes the interior appear more spacious, it can also be utilized for decor or practical purposes. Many home owners add benches to make their bay windows a reading space with a wonderful view, with storage space beneath the seating. Other times, a console table can be adorned with personalized decor such as curtains, lamps, and picture frames to adorn both the room itself, and the exterior view. This makes Bay Windows a great add-on for both interior and exterior considerations.
