Benefits of Bay Windows
For small homes, installing these replacement windows can add square footage and increase property value. They increase natural light in a room by admitting natural light into a room from multiple angles. You can open bay windows to increase ventilation in your space.
Well-designed bay windows can be utilized in different ways. You can use the area around the bay window as a small dining space, a cozy reading nook or a lounge to visit with guests.
Bay Windows for Modern Homes
You can make your bay window a focal point by add lighting, pillows, a side table and luxurious window drapes. Use bold colors, textures and cushions to make the space more inviting.
Invest in soft, high-quality fabrics and foam for the window seat cushion to give the space a luxurious look and feel. Place your bay windows in an area where you can enjoy a scenic view. The window can act as a frame that enhances the beautiful landscape.
Utilize the area below the window as added storage. Consider open shelving, drawers or cabinets to help minimize clutter. Conceal the storage and cabinetry by hiding the hardware and using hidden hinges.
