Champaign may be home to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, but it is also known for its varied cultural attractions including the Krannert Art Museum and the Spurlock Museum. The Central Illinois city has a style all its own and that extends to the houses around town.
One way to add visual appeal to your home, while also maximizing natural light, is to add a bay window, which typically consists of a large picture window centered between two smaller, functional windows — often with screens — that can be opened to enjoy nice weather.
Commonly known as: box bay window, oriel window, projecting window, square bay window, 45-degree bay window, 30-degree bay window

Champaign’s homes showcase a mix of traditional and modern styles. The addition of a bay window is a surefire way to make your residence stand out while also adding functionality.
Stroll through a neighborhood in Champaign and you’ll likely notice a mix of historical and modern design elements in the city’s traditional and ranch homes. A bay window adds visual flair to the exterior of a traditional home and creates the appearance of a more spacious interior.
You can use a bay window to create a greenhouse space flooded with natural light where house plants — or artificial plants if that’s more your style — can thrive. You can also use the interior shelf of your bay window to grow flowers and herbs, minus the hassle of cultivating a garden.
Studies have shown that exposure to light greatly impacts circadian rhythms, sleep patterns and mood. A bedroom bay window gives you exposure to sunlight in the morning to help wake you up and reduces the need for artificial lighting. Add Low-E glass for improved energy efficiency.
A bay window can create a comfortable area in your home where you can relax and unwind. There are numerous bay window customization and hardware options available to match the look and feel of the room in which you choose to install this type of window. Consider adding screens to all of your operable windows — usually the left and right — to capture a breeze.
1Not all customizations are available in all Pella product lines.
Champaign has a typical Midwestern climate with hot summers and cold, moderately snowy winters. Energy-efficient windows are a sound investment for those living in Central Illinois.
Double pane and triple pane windows can help lower energy costs compared to single pane windows. Extra layers of glass with insulating gas between the panes provide additional insulation to help you enjoy bay window views in comfort through all seasons.
Get year-round protection with Advanced Low-E insulating glass. The glass helps keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the humid summer. It also reduces UV ray exposure.
Ensure your home’s wood bay windows are prepared for cold winters, humid summers, and heavy precipitation.

Both bay and bow windows use a combination of windows to protrude from the exterior of a home. Bay windows consist of a set of three angled window panels — one large, fixed window and two flanking windows on the sides. In contrast, bow windows are made of four or more windows that create a curved shape. Learn more about the differences in size, style, light, ventilation and cost.
