CREATIVE WAYS TO USE YOUR BAY AND BOW WINDOWS

Originally for Victorian-style architecture in Great Britain, bay windows were adopted into American buildings in the late 1800s. Bay windows, along with bow windows, consist of two or more panes. A common sight in older homes, these usually feature a large expanse of glass.

Creative Ways Use Bay Bow Windows

Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis offers a few ways you can make the most of your bay and bow windows.

Built-In Banquette

Create a casual look by installing a banquette just below the sill and tossing on some pillows. You can also add a pedestal-style table of the right height to transform the space into a mini coffee area. Ensure a smooth transition to the windowsill by adding a shelf behind the back cushion of your banquette.

Dining Area

On your next windows installation in St. Charles, MO, add bay and bow windows to a room and make it a spot where you can eat. You can do this by raising the windowsills right above table height. Build a dining counter into the bay afterwards.

Study or Work Area

To create a built-in desk into your bay and bow window, make sure your windowsills are at the proper height for the desktop. You can use window treatments to make sure the glare isn’t too strong on your computer monitor. You may use blinds to moderate the light and still allow a view of the outside.

Bathroom Window Seats

You can build your tub into bay windows, to create window seats. You may use a freest anding tub and use the space around it to highlight the depth of the room. Using window treatments, such as blinds, drapes, or curtains, will help you maintain privacy.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
