Sashman Bay Windows

August 7, 2023
Sashman upgrades and replaces all types of windows including “bay windows”, a charming architectural feature commonly found in Victorian and Edwardian era houses.

One of the most appealing aspects of bay windows is their ability to bring an abundance of natural light into a room. Their design, with three or more panels that extend outward from the main walls of a building, allows sunlight to stream in from different angles, creating a bright and inviting space. This also provides a sense of openness, making rooms feel more spacious. 

Typically a bay window has three openings, in angled projections, but there are many shapes and variations of type. A box bay window is rectangular, while a bow window's structure is curved, creating a rounded appearance on the outside of the home.

Homeowners often convert the extra interior space into a cosy reading nook, a small dining area, or a spot for indoor plants to thrive. From the outside, bay windows add character to a property, breaking the monotony of a flat façade and contributing to the overall beauty of a property. Their presence can increase resale value, making them attractive for homeowners to maintain.

With their ability to flood interiors with natural light,create versatile spaces, and elevate a property's exterior appeal, it's nowonder bay windows remain beloved by those seeking to retain an old world eleganceand charm in their living spaces.
