Long Island Bay Windows

Bay Windows are Smart and Stylish

Bay windows are typically comprised of three window panes—one central, fixed window which is framed by two smaller operable windows that are angled. Bay windows project beyond the walls of your home to let in more light, which is a popular look on row houses and brownstones where window space is limited. Bay windows have the additional effect of making a space look larger, which can be especially helpful in tighter city lots. From Kings County to Suffolk County, bay windows are an attractive, welcoming architectural element on many styles of homes.

Commonly known as: oriel window, projection window, 90-degree angle window, 45-degree bay window, 30-degree bay window, box bay window, square bay window

Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • Kitchen Bay Windows Kitchen Bay Windows

    While bay windows add curb appeal and are frequently seen on the front of a home, a less visible but equally appealing location for bay windows is in the kitchen. Adding a small bay window over the kitchen sink is a great way to add light into a room where there might not have been many windows originally, especially in older homes that were designed with small, out-of-sight kitchens. Larger bay windows can add ambience to kitchen dining areas and create the option for bay window seats.


  • Black Window Frames Contemporary Bay Window Black window frames are trending. A black finish on bay windows provides a striking visual contrast and looks swell in contemporary homes and modern farmhouses, like many on Long Island’s East End. In addition to the window finish, consider more geometric hardware styles or square grille patterns to achieve the modern mix that’s right for you and your home.
  • Custom Bay Windows Custom Bay Window

    Bay windows are available in both 30- and 40-degree projections and many sizes, from around 40 inches to much larger. Once you’ve identified the size of bay window that best suits your space and needs, you can further customize your product through finishes, grille patterns, between-the-glass blinds, and hardware choices. With a nearly limitless combination of options, you can be sure to find a bay window that is unique as your Long Island home.

  • Window Benches Traditional Bay Windows

    You’ll find a wide variety of home styles on Long Island, including classic colonials, Tudors, and Victorian-style homes. Bay windows were common elements in all three of these older home styles. Historically, homes like the Tudors in Auburndale, Queens, or coastal Colonials in Freeport, have a traditional aesthetic, meaning wood windows, traditional grille patterns, and simple finishes. Bear in mind that there may be certain requirements in place for replacing windows in a historic home or neighborhood.

Long Island Climate Recommendations

Thanks to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, Long Island experiences a relatively moderate climate compared to the rest of New York. Summers are long and hot and winters are cool, while spring and fall bring mild temperatures. The Atlantic also provides afternoon ocean breezes, which helps temper the severity of thunderstorms. The north and east parts of Long Island tend to be cooler than the more densely populated western and southern areas. To help protect bay windows from salty air, consider fiberglass window options.

Vinyl Bay Windows

Weather Protection

Prepare wood windows for bitterly cold winters and semi-humid summers.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Window panes of glass with Advanced Low-E will help keep your home insulated, blocking out the cold and keeping the heat in.

Weather Protection

Salty Air

In coastal climates close to water, your windows are more vulnerable to corrosion from the salt in the air. The closer your home is to the water, the more susceptible you are to the effects. Consider fiberglass to help maintain window integrity.
