Philadelphia Bay Windows

Bay Windows are a Colonial Classic

Development in Philadelphia is moving forward by getting back to its roots. And few home features are more rooted in the city’s history than bay windows, which started appearing on Philadelphia rowhouses in the early 1800s — like the historic townhouses of Rittenhouse Square.

A bay window is actually a combination of three windows, joined at an angle, that extend beyond your exterior wall. They create an elegant architectural element on the exterior of your home and add space on the interior. The multiple windows and angles create a larger opening than standard flat windows, which brings more light and air into your room.

Commonly known as: Oriel window, box bay window

Bay Windows With Curtains

Bay windows become a focal point of any room they’re in. They can stand alone and display their natural beauty, but many homeowners choose to decorate bay windows. There are many window covering options to choose from – drapes, blinds, valances, shades, vertical blinds — but curtains are the most sought-after window treatment choice in the Philadelphia area

Seats and Benches

Since bay windows add extra square footage to your home, many homeowners take advantage by creating seats and benches in their newfound nooks. These little spaces are great for additional seating in a living room or breakfast room. Add some cushions and pillows to your bay window seat to create a place to read, relax, or just enjoy some sunlight.

Kitchen Bay Windows

Kitchens are a primary point of congregation and entertaining. Bay windows can make your kitchen feel bigger and brighter. You can use the additional space for a bench. Or if you install a large bay window, you might be able to fit your table and chairs to create a dining room with a view. Smaller bay windows can be used above your kitchen sink or counters to improve the view from your entertaining workspace and bring natural light to a normally dark area of the kitchen.

Small Bay Windows

The narrow style of traditional Philadelphia townhomes and rowhouses leaves less wall space. Small bay windows can fit these homes and often match the original architecture of the colonial era. They also provide more light and space that makes small rooms look bigger. Philadelphia and its many historic neighborhoods have restrictions on the sizes of bay windows and other protruding architectural elements.

Philadelphia Climate Recommendations

Double- or Triple-Pane Glass

Cut your energy costs with more panes of glass. Invest in energy-efficient double or triple pane windows that fill with insulating gas for adding thermal efficiency.

Low-E Protection

Keep warm in the winter by reducing 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.

Durable Materials

Frequent storms during the winter bring bitter cold and frozen precipitation. Wood with aluminum cladding, vinyl, and fiberglass are low maintenance and can help stand up to extreme weather.
