Four Reasons Why Bay Windows Are Irresistible


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:

 

Versatility

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!

 

These are just some of the top reasons why homeowners should consider installing bay windows. We’re confident that once you experience the benefits of your first bay window installation, you'll want one in every room of your house!

Northshield replaced 9 windows in our house. Our only complaint would be that the colour doesn't really match the sample we were shown. The woman we first encountered in the showroom was pleasant and helpful. There are only so many things she could tell us in the showroom but it was enough to convince us to book an appointment with a salesman. Walter, the fellow who came to our house, wasn't really a salesman at all and yet he knew exactly what he was doing. Answered all of our questions, clearly knew his business inside and out, was patient with us, made some really helpful suggestions, and just generally made us feel confident and comfortable. Next came Vladimir. He came to do the final measurements and to verify the details of each window. Another very very knowledgeable guy. Clearly an expert in his field and yet friendly and patient with us. The team of men who came to do the install were all very much polite and professional. Their workmanship is first rate. In the end, what I know is this, the new windows are in, the drafts and rattles from the old ones are gone, the price was fine, the quality is A1, and every single individual along our journey was a genuine pleasure to work with.

We chose Northshield because of the rave reviews on Google, but unfortunately the experience was a disappointment. The sales guy was nice enough, but like most suppliers in their industry, installation came 6 weeks past their original estimate, which was fine since we were not in a big rush, although we had to delay the painting of our kitchen because of it. The two big issues were: 1. To install our new patio doors, the opening had to be widened, which our sales guy mentioned, and which was fine to us. The problem came when the installers were on site and insisted that they did not need to replace the header. I know nothing about construction but luckily my colleagues told me to make sure that they install a new header because they were widening the doorway. Luckily I was home and I persisted that they install a new header, and after a while they finally realized that they needed to do it as well. They went off to the store to get the wood and the drywall and finished the job, which looked fine. 2. Only a few months later big cracks appeared along the new header. I called Northshield only to be told by Alex that my painter should've known that the patchwork on the header was very minimal and that "any professional painter should've known to make sure the drywall was ready to be painted." So they refused to do anything about it. I guess I should've said back to him "any professional installer should've known you need a new header when you widen a doorway!" So now I have a wall that I will need to re-patch and re-paint all over again. If you decide to use Northshield, please do your own research and make sure that you oversee their work, because they will never take responsibility for it, or admit that they didn't know what the heck they were doing.

Professional, clean, good customer service. Fast and efficient. No surprises or hidden costs, did not try to upsell me and worked within my budget. Very happy with the finished product and will continue to use in the future for replacing my remaining windows.
