Bay windows are technically several windows bundled together. It’s the arrangement that gives this window style its own character. The customization options that are available to homeowners who choose to invest in these are many. Renewal by Andersen® of Western New York has a few great suggestions to transform this versatile window style into a classy and functional part of your home.


1. Create a nook of quiet and solitude

One of the simplest things you can do with bay windows in Buffalo, NY, is to use the space it creates as a seating nook. With a picture window featured in the center flanked by two double-hung windows, this makes for the perfect arrangement—offering great views, great illumination, and much-needed ventilation. For the actual nook itself, all you need is a custom cushion and some pillows!

2. Set up a very comfy office

Set up a desk into the nook created by your bay window! You’ll have to set your bay window slightly higher to accommodate this arrangement comfortably, but it’s worth it—nothing like some natural light to get the creative juices flowing.

3. Entertain in Style

Now, a seating nook is fine, so is a home office, but what if we told you that you could set up a classy banquette where you, your family members, and friends can socialize in style? It’s sort of like a fancy booth in a restaurant—comfy and intimate. This takes up bigger space than the other ideas on this list, but it’s worth the investment, as it’s a unique take on the whole concept of at-home dining.

4. Invade your garden or patio!

There are many who limit their thinking when it comes to bay window installation in Buffalo, NY, not realizing that you can have a bay window that runs from the floor to the ceiling. Not only does this create a wide, bright area in your home but—if placed so that it juts into your garden—it can also create a “connecting bridge” between the inside and outside of your home. It’s a unique, creative concept that really makes your home stand out.

5. Stick to what’s simple

Naturally, you don’t have to go all out to enjoy your bay windows. Even at its simplest, it can be a bright and interesting addition to any living or dining area. The fact that it’s suited for even narrower or smaller homes all but cements the argument for its versatility. We still recommend maximizing a great view and balancing it with ventilation to truly enjoy all that this window style has to offer.
