Top Ways to Work with a Bay Window

The classic bay window, although considered traditional, can give your home a classy and elegant vibe through its architecturally linear design, improving your home’s interior and exterior walls. Its panels notably invite more daylight inside the room, lessening your dependence on artificial lighting. Your trusted replacement windows provider, Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois, gives you some ways to work with bay windows without requiring drastic changes to your home’s structure.

Maximize the Spac

A well-planned bay window can be versatile for it can be used as a reading nook, daybed, bench, built-in shelving, and storage space. With a little creativity, a personalized space can also be made from its projecting area, which can combine all of its common uses. By placing a bed or a plain backrest on its ledge, you can now relish the view just outside your home. Customized shelves can also be placed on the additional square footage to save up space


A bay window can draw attention when beautifully styled. The fanciful use of colors, textures, and accessories must complement the function of the space and must maintain a minimalist ambience. You can throw in some pillows, small trays, or a side table with contemporary fabrics which can tie in with the whole room.

Perfect Spot

Most bay windows are placed in the living room. However, any area with sufficient space and a panoramic view is recommendable. The expanse of glass opens up the whole room, framing your picturesque outdoor scenery

"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!"
