A bay window can make your home feel more spacious, appear brighter, and help bring the outdoors inside. Bay windows are common additions to living rooms and master bedrooms where homeowners desire increased natural lighting and enhanced architectural elements. At Weather Shield, we create bay windows with a combination of window types, but the most common windows used to create a bay window are picture windows flanked by casement windows , single hung windows or double hung windows .
What Is a Bay Window?
A bay window is an architectural window feature that can make a room appear more spacious, improve the view, and add significantly more natural light. Bay windows typically have three sides: one that is parallel to the exterior wall and two that are angled outward toward the room.
Another type of bay window, although less common, is the recessed bay window. A recessed bay window looks like a reversed version of a traditional bay window. Rather than extruding from the building’s exterior wall, they are inverted, removing interior space. These are commonly built when one wants to improve the natural lighting of a room, but cannot get a permit to build outward from the exterior wall.
