Albany Bay Windows

Bay Windows Increase Natural Light in Homes

Installing a new or replacement bay window in your home yields a multitude of benefits. Bay windows are a beautiful statement piece. Typically, three windows placed side-by-side at an angle, bay windows are a natural focal point. Many homeowners choose to add shelving, create a reading nook or install built-in benches around these windows.

Bay windows are commonly seen in Victorian-style homes, which Albany is no stranger to. New York’s capital city is influenced by English and Dutch architecture. Whether you’re a proud homeowner of a row house in downtown or are building a new home in East Greenbush, bay windows are a great choice to add character to your home.

Commonly known as: box bay window, oriel window, projecting window, square bay window, 45-degree bay window, 30-degree bay window

    If you’re looking to create a relaxing sanctuary in your home, look no further than your bathroom. A bay window adds both style and luxury to your bathroom. For a beautiful statement piece, place your bathtub in the center of the bay window. Since bay windows are so large and let in sunlight, they can make even the smallest of bathrooms feel roomy.

  • Kitchen Bay Window Kitchen Bay Window  Bay windows are a great option for multiple places in your kitchen. Bay windows above your sink area create extra counter space, while giving you an opportunity to let in fresh air while you’re doing the dishes or making a meal. If a breakfast nook is more your thing, bay windows are perfect for creating a space your family is sure to love. Install benches or a table to create a designated space for gathering.

Traditionally Victorian-style bay windows protrude from the building often with a roof made from tiles or lead. Copper is a popular style choice these days. For a true period piece, choose a Victorian grille pattern and classic brass hardware.
