When one thinks of windows for contemporary and modern homes, bay windows aren’t exactly the first choice that comes to mind. This traditional style is more associated with classic architecture and may seem out of place in a postmodern setting. However, don’t let its history limit the versatile utility of this great option.
Let our window experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix walk you through a few clever ways you can tweak bay window features to make them the perfect choice for the homes of today.
Planning for a bay window installation can be a little more demanding than other styles of windows. The added floor space is definitely an advantage, but it also means slightly bigger construction work. If you want a contemporary upgrade to a home with a few weird quirks here and there, you can use this time to smooth out the kinks in the architecture. Additionally, bay windows can also take the focus away from an awkward space in a room.
Space and Utility
Bay windows are perhaps the most useful available today. While it’s not meant for some homes, those that do choose to install bay windows get to enjoy the additional floor space that it provides. Some homeowners use this for built-in seating, storage or just an area for general utility. Use it as a small breakfast corner in the kitchen, a comfy reading nook in the bedroom, or a space for more guest seating in the living room.
Accessorizing Bay Windows
It’s not too difficult to add some upgrades and modifications to your bay window installation. Ask your contractor about lighting options, extra cushions, provisions for window treatments, built-in trays and tables, or any other accessory that can make the window even more useful.
