Often acting as the centerpiece of a home, bay windows are made up of a large center window with two smaller windows on each side. The sides are usually casements or double hung windows, while the centre is a fixed window. There are numerous benefits to having bay windows—a house is almost incomplete without them!
Let’s talk about some of the benefits.
Natural light = Energy Saving
One of the major benefits is energy saving as a result of natural lighting. Because bay windows draw in so much natural light, you will use less electricity, especially in the summer months when the days are long.
Natural lighting has numerous other benefits, including contributing to good health, increasing productivity and regulating circadian rhythms for a better night’s sleep.
Should you potentially plan to put your house on the market in the future, increasing your home’s value is an important factor to consider. Bay windows offer numerous benefits that increase your home value, one of them being that they are aesthetically pleasing. Bay windows are known to increase ‘curb appeal’ because of the clean, modern look they portray that gives homes a luxurious feeling. On the inside, bay windows make any living space seem larger thanks to the natural lighting coming in and the ability to see the outdoors rather than just plain walls.
Since bay windows usually include two smaller windows that open, they offer great ventilation without sacrificing in aesthetic appeal. The view remains unobstructed thanks to the fixed window, while the two smaller operational windows provide fresh air from two different directions.
