Bay Windows Styles & Designs
Some windows are focused on letting in light. Others are built to change the exterior appearance of a structure. Bay windows do both.
Bay windows are glass-sided recesses that protrude outwards from the house. From the exterior, they look like a decorative expansion growing out of the house. From the interior, however, it's the equivalent of what a bay is to the ocean: a small inlet that's slightly separated from main space.
Evolution Storm and Flush windows are available in a wide range of Bay Windows designs and styles.
Why choose a Bay Window?
The formal purpose of a bay window is to increase the surface area of a wall, and therefore increase the amount of natural light that can enter through that wall. By extending the window beyond the wall, you let more light in than if you had set the window into the flat wall itself. It also adds space to the interior as well, making a room look larger or more spacious.
Bay Window Styles
There are several styles of Bay window to choose from, most of which involve setting 3 or more panes of glass into a specific shape. It is the shape of the bay window which most characterizes its style.
