One of the favorite replacement windows among homeowners here in Denver and the surrounding areas is the bay window. At Zen Windows Denver, we can design and install your new bay window to match your home’s style and reflect your preferences.
What Is a Bay Window?
Bay windows is an umbrella term for all protruding window constructions or projection windows. Each section of the window is known as a lite. Typically, the center window (center lite) of the three is fixed and does not open, while the two sidelites are vented or casement windows. Homeowners can also make their bay windows unique by choosing from a variety of hardware finishes, unique exterior and interior colors, and window grid patterns.
To further tailor the new window to your needs, you can choose the type of glass, such as insulated glass, and select from several projection angles, which indicate how far the window “sticks out” from the rest of the external wall. You can also specify other configuration details, like choosing a bay window with a wider central lite—or if you prefer, all three lites can be the same width. If you’d like the lites at right angles to one another, this is called a “box bay window.” A bay window with a flat front and angled sides is called “canted”. You’d refer to a bay window that utilizes a corbel or bracket as an “oriel window.”
Bay Window vs. Bow Window
For a similar look, consider a bow window. While bow and bay windows are similar, bow windows consist of four or more lites which form a more subtle arch. The end vents of a bow window (usually casement windows) can open.
Advantages of Bay Windows
A new bay window can make a ho-hum room look terrific, both when viewed from outside and looking out from indoors. These charming windows enhance curb appeal and can improve the view from your living room, bedroom, or wherever you choose to install the bay window.
A replacement bay window:
- Is versatile. Use it as a replacement in most large window openings, even if the prior window was not a bay window.
- Allows you a wider, better viewing angle, because bay windows extend out in a 3D fashion.
- Attractively frames your view of surrounding landscaping or natural features outside the window.
- Can add value to your home or help it sell faster by enhancing curb appeal.
- Creates a distinctive architectural feature that can dress up a starter home.
- Adds historical detail to a vintage home.
- Lends charm to a modern home.
- Makes a room feel larger and brighter, as it receives more natural light, from many angles.
- Feels like getting a new room addition, without moving walls or altering your house’s footprint.
- Can become a window seat for reading/relaxing.
- Adds storage or display space to your room.
- And more.
