Bay windows have been popular for generations. They’re a great way to add some interesting dimensional space to your home without taking up any additional wall space. They let in natural light, offer up some nice views, and also include a deep sill area for plants or decorations.
Bay windows project outwards from the building’s interior, and typically include one larger central window and two smaller side windows. The central window is usually fixed, and is arranged such that it is parallel to the existing wall. The side windows are commonly placed at either 30- or 45-degree angles, but other angle configurations may also be available depending on the product you choose. The side windows may be fixed, but more commonly are either double-hung or casement windows.
Here are a few more key features of bay windows:
