The Best Ways to Use Bay Windows

Bay windows are exceptionally versatile. Whether you’ve moved into a house that already has bay windows or are planning on having new ones installed, you should know what’s possible with this window style. In this post, replacement windows and patio doors company Renewal by Andersen® of Austin shares the top ways bay windows can be used:

Window Seats

A bay window is a perfect area to install a cozy window seat. Whether in the living room, bedroom or study, a window seat provides a peaceful place to lounge, read a book or visit with friends. Thanks to our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages, you can enjoy lots of natural light from your bay window without feeling uncomfortable due to heat from the sunlight.Storage or Display Space

A bay window is a perfect place to install some extra storage. This can be built as closed-space storage such as cabinets or Ottoman-style window seats, or open shelves that are perfect for books. The same space can also be used for hiding a radiator or a wireless router.Front Door Security

Curb-facing bay windows let you see who’s knocking at your front door. This added security feature can also be handy when you don’t have the time to entertain door-to-door salesmen, or if you’re expecting a package that you’d rather not have the courier leave at the front porch. Yard-facing bay windows help you see better around the yard, especially if out-swinging French doors are blocking your view.Kitchen Banquette

A bay window with a window seat is perfect as a kitchen banquette. All you need is a table and additional chairs for the opposite side. This helps you reclaim precious kitchen space.
