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