Scranton Bay Windows

Bay Windows Offer Elegance and Sophistication

Many Northeastern Pennsylvania neighborhoods feature historical homes. Traditional architectural elements like bay windows bring these homes back to their roots and add an air of sophistication. In addition to looks, bay windows offer functionality by maximizing the light and space in your home.

From contemporary to Victorian, bay windows bring elegance to any home style. Protruding outside of a home, they are a great way to capture impressive views, create the illusion of additional space, add a window seat, and fill a room with light. Consisting of three separate panes of glass within a single frame, bay windows typically feature a larger, fixed center window flanked by two operable casements.

Commonly known as: projection window, bay box window

Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • Victorian style home Victorian Style Bay Windows

    Pennsylvania — especially Lackawanna County —  is famous for its historic homes. Victorian-era homes commonly featured bay window bump-outs as a distinctive decorative element. Victorian-style windows often feature tall and narrow four- or six-paned vertical sliding sash double-hung windows or three-sided bay windows. Many times a ground floor bay window features its own roof or sits within a circular or geometric tower. When replacing windows in a home that resides in a historical neighborhood, there can be guidelines on how to restore it to original authenticity.

  • Modern bay windows Modern Bay Window Designs Not everyone is seeking historic charm, and bay windows do not always need to be traditional style. Several types of bay windows exist, including styles that are available at both 30° and 40° angles. To make the most of a bay window, the exterior wall space needs to be 40 inches wide or larger.
  • Bay window with seating area Bay Window Seats

    Many homeowners use bay windows to create an additional sitting area. A built-in window seat can provide a great place to relax in a living room or be used as a comfortable nook for reading or lounging in a bedroom. A bay window bench can be used in the kitchen for extra seating and storage.

  • Kitchen bay windows ?Kitchen Bay Windows

    Bay windows are commonly seen in the front of a house because they allow a wide view of the street. But they are also used in the back off the kitchen so you can dine within view of your garden or landscaping. Kitchen bay windows can create additional space for a dining room, giving you more room around the table. Mini bay windows above the kitchen sink or food prep area let you enjoy the outdoors while you prepare meals.

Scranton Climate Recommendations

The state of Pennsylvania falls between two major climate zones, separating the northern part of the state from the southern. Northeast Pennsylvania has a mid-range climate, which means cooler winter months will be more comfortable with energy-efficient insulating glass windows.
