Bay windows are made of three separate windows that form one unit. This unique configuration adds character and charm to any home. In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Cincinnati lists four important benefits bay windows bring to your home.
1. Extra Space
As far as specialty windows are concerned, bay windows are the most functional since they add extra space and dimension to your home. The bay window area juts out from the wall, literally giving you more physical space. The area by the bay window can serve as a cozy lounging space, an extra storage area or even a cute reading nook with a bookshelf.
2. More Windows, More Light
Since bay windows are three windows in one, they channel more natural light into your home. The angled construction of the side windows means you get light from all directions for maximum daylighting.
3. Better Exterior Views
More windows also mean enhanced exterior views. With bay windows, you get a view of different directions, yielding a fuller, more lush view of your landscape.
4. Better Ventilation
Finally, the large size of the bay window means it’s one of the best window styles to pick if you’re looking to add much-needed ventilation in your rooms. While the center window is usually a fixed unit like a picture window, the two side windows can be operable. Casement or double hung windows are great choices for the side windows if your goal is to maximize ventilation.
