Louisville Bay Windows

Bay Windows are a Classic Style in Central Kentucky

Louisville is a unique city with loads of historical architecture. Traditional Colonial, Victorian, and Tudor homes intermix with more modern Craftsman and ranch houses. Bay windows were popularized in Victorian style homes and have held that popularity through the many architectural eras since.

Bay windows are a classic choice for homes from Louisville to Lexington. They fit many of the region’s home styles and bring benefits that other types of windows can’t match: more natural light, better airflow, and increased space in your room. Bay windows can add a unique design element to your living room, kitchen, master bedroom, or bathroom.

Commonly known as: projecting window, square bay window, box bay window, oriel window

Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • Traditional bay windows with curtains Bay Windows With Curtains

    With a three-window combination, there’s a lot more space to cover when you want shade or privacy. Curtains are a popular treatment for bay windows. They are light enough to let in some sunlight while providing privacy and can be pushed to the sides when you want maximum light. Adjustable bay window curtain rods can change to fit the angle and width of your bay windows, allowing you to hang curtains that span the full window opening.

  • American Craftsman Style House American Craftsman Style Houses American Craftsman style was all the rage in the early 20th century and has seen a resurgence over the past few years. Craftsman homes can be found all over Louisville, most notably in Bonnycastle. The style emphasizes simple form and function, crafted materials and elements like wood, and originality in design. Bay windows are a common feature of Craftsman-style bungalows, adding individuality to the home’s exterior and making efficient use of space in the interior.
  • Modern Styling Modern Style

    Contemporary Craftsman style is the modern version of the American Craftsman, blending traditional Craftsman characteristics with modern design elements. Both styles emphasize simplicity, but modern style uses more clean lines and open floor plans. Modern bay windows can open your living room or kitchen, creating a space that feels bigger and brighter. White window frames can provide contrast to the dark, rich woods common in Craftsman homes and create an eclectic, modern look.

  • Bay window with double-pane glass Double-Pane and Triple-Pane Windows

    Central Kentucky sees some seasonal extremes when it comes to weather, so many homeowners prefer energy efficient windows to help reduce energy costs and keep their homes comfortable in all seasons. 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 so your home stays cooler in the hot, humid Louisville summer and warmer when snow and cold hit in the winter.
