Bay windows can complement almost every home style and serve various purposes. While some people tend to associate bay windows with traditional architecture, they actually work just as well in modern-style homes with the right design.
Make the most of your bay windows with these design ideas.
Benefits of Bay Windows
For small homes, installing bay windows can add square footage and increase property value. They increase natural light in a room due to their angled design, which allows sunlight to come in various directions. You can open bay windows to increase ventilation in your space.
Well-designed bay windows can be utilized in different ways. In the area by the bay window, you can place a daybed, bench, shelving or small table to create a dining area.
Bay Windows for Modern Homes
Highlight your home’s architectural elements with a bay window. You can make a bay window the focal point of a room as well as a lounging place. Add lighting, pillows, a side table and luxurious drapes. Use bold colors, textures and cushions to make the space more inviting.
For your window seat, invest in soft, high-quality fabrics and foam for the seat cushion to give the space a luxurious look and feel. Your bay window can act as a frame that enhances the beautiful landscape outside your home.
Utilize the area below the window as added storage. Consider open shelving, drawers, and cabinets to help minimize clutter. Conceal the storage and cabinetry by hiding the hardware and using hidden hinges.
