4 Ideas for Your Bay Window Seats

At Renewal by Andersen®, we cannot help but love bay windows. Not only do these windows create a beautiful look when viewed from outside, they also offer other benefits as well. From different curtain ideas to adding a resting bay, they have the most potential of any style.

If you’re lucky enough to have a bay window in your home, then you might have realized by now that it needs just as much consideration in terms of designing as any part of your home. Don’t worry as Renewal by Andersen of Central Illinois can help you figure out how to best utilize this space.

1. A Seat and Storage

Using this kind of window as a seat and storage lets you maximize every space in your home. By creating drawers or adding cabinets under the seat, you can reduce the visible clutter in your home.

2. A Study Seat

Window seats are ideal for study bays, home offices or libraries. Moreover, the presence of natural light and ventilation make it perfect for working, studying or reading.

3. Make It Big

If you have extended bay windows, you can consider filling in a huge bump-out with a raised platform, making it a large space for your whole family. You can add custom-made mattresses to ensure comfortable seating. Moreover, the addition of double hung windows from Renewal by Andersen can surely add elegance to the overall look.

4. A Dinner Chair

Renewal by Andersen also suggests creating a seating bay in your dining area. If you have visitors, you can easily pull your dining table over to make way for instant and extended seating.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
