Bay and bow windows will never go out of style. They’re practical, they look good, and they make your house look bigger.
Another great thing about bay and bow windows is the additional space – there are so many things you can do with it. If you don’t have them yet and you need to call a contractor for window repair in Ann Arbor, consider having your windows replaced with bay windows instead. Here are some ideas to get you started:
1. Reading Nook
Window bays always seem to have that inviting look. The increased natural light combined with a few pillows thrown in makes the perfect spot in your bedroom for reading and studying.
2. Extended Seating
You can also take the same idea into your living room. Extend the seating capacity by having some custom seat cushions made and making it part of the living room furniture design. Oriel windows (i.e. bay windows that do not reach the ground) are surprisingly strong and can carry the weight of more than one person.
3. Home Office
Maximize the space of your home office by installing a floating desk into the bay instead of the typical seat – a window office! You can enjoy a great view while working or you can have shades installed over your windows in Ann Arbor if there’s too much sun.
4. Display Space
Using bay or bow windows as display spaces work well if the bay is situated at eye level. You can showcase just about any collection that would fit: family pictures, small potted houseplants (or cooking herbs, if it’s in the kitchen), porcelain figures…even books and vinyl records. You’ll be glad to know that your record sleeves won’t fade in the sunlight if you have UV-blocking glass installed in your windows in Ann Arbor, MI, – like Renewal by Andersen’s High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass.
5. Storage Space
That extra space under the bay is just begging to be used as storage space. You can turn it into a closet or drawer for pillows, comforters, or extra blankets. You can also consider a bookcase.
