The charm and style of bay windows are favoured by homeowners and always prove to be a worthwhile investment. Some of the most significant reasons for the on-going success and popularity of bay windows include:
Bay windows suit any part of your property. They can be installed in living rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, and especially in the kitchen. There are various sizes and shapes available which mean that homeowners can choose the design that best suits their needs, budget, and style.
Adding a bay window can also help you get creative with your floor space! You can use this extra space to add: a reading nook, a special spot for your piano, the perfect spot to take an afternoon nap, or even extra storage space. The possibilities are endless.
Air and Light
Large windows make it much easier to air out your home quickly and efficiently. Even if you don't keep your windows open all day, that fresh morning breeze or crisp night air is just what every home needs to ensure that the air inside does not become stale or stagnant. During the winter months, larger windows allow for fast ventilation when you need it most.
The size of these windows also mean that your home will welcome that much more natural light. Natural light can be a great way for saving on your hydro bills. Natural light has a charm and warmth that can’t be matched by any form of artificial light.
Your Property’s Value
Style and versatility will always increase the value of your home. And just like you, your property is totally unique, featuring it’s own personal style. Creative and unique features like bay windows can help potential buyers imagine themselves living in your home and enjoying its one-of-a-kind comforts. There are so many other ways that bay window’s are able to increase the value of your home, including the expansion of your ceiling. A bay window gives the illusion of a wider, higher ceiling. This means your bay window is helping to emphasize the height of the room; a feature that holds significant weight with homebuyers. Since bay windows help expand your living space, you can also be sure that this extra interior space will help attract buyers since your home will be that much more spacious.
Style & Theme
For homeowners looking to emphasize the details and style of their Victorian or Craftsman style properties, bay windows are the perfect authentic accent-pieces. Once your bay windows have been installed, you need only add the proper accessories (like traditional shutters or gables) to make sure that your home’s exterior holds true to it’s style or theme. Bay windows don't only influence the style of your home, they also enhance the personality already present. They will give your home added curb appeal, and they will make your home particularly attractive to all those romantic home buyers out there!
