The bay window is quintessentially Victorian, but it is versatile enough to work well with almost any architectural style in Ohio. For Renewal by Andersen® of Cincinnati, bay windows are as stylish as they are utilitarian. They expand interior floor space, help boost curb appeal, provide excellent ventilation, admit an abundance of natural light and capture expansive views. They can be tricky to dress, but the right window treatments can increase privacy, solve glare problems and prevent unwanted heat gain.
Read on as we share creative bay window design ideas to consider:
Dining by the Bay
If you have large windows in the kitchen or dining area, replacing them with bay windows will change the way you enjoy meals. If there’s enough real estate, you can fit an entire table for four or six. Even if the recess is a bit narrow, it would still be big enough to house a banquette so you can dine restaurant-style in your own home.
Installing a bay window in the bedroom can be a cost-effective alternative to a balcony. The bay window will provide an expansive view of the landscape that you can look out onto while winding down after a long day of work.
Couch and Library in One
A box bay window – a configuration where two outer windows are set at a 90°-angle – can accommodate a cozy couch. Frame the wall opening with bookshelves, and voilà, you’ll have a mini-library with a reading nook.
A Tub in the Bay
A floor-to-ceiling bay unit crowned with specialty windows can bring more charm to your bathroom. It offers a natural place for a freestanding tub where you can soak in style.
