Gone were the days when bay and bow windows were reserved for Victorian-style architecture. This type of window that features of two or more panes and a large expanse of glass has now become a favorite addition to contemporary homes.
Renewal by Andersen® of Omaha and Lincoln lists ways you can dress up your bay and bow windows so they can blend well with your contemporary home:
1. Dining Area
Add bay and bow Omaha windows and transform the sill into a dining spot. This can be done by raising the sill to achieve the right table height.
2. Built-In Banquette
Create a casual spot for chatting and relaxation by installing a banquette just below the sill. You can amp the coziness in the area by tossing on some pillows and adding some personal details like picture frames. Go big by adding a pedestal-style table of the right height and transforming the space into a mini coffee area. You can include some books or some board games to complete the look.
3. Study or Work Area
Natural light can help lift your mood and motivate you to study or work. Maximize the abundant sunlight that bay and bow windows bring in by creating a built-in desk into the unit. In doing so, make sure your sill is at the proper height for the desktop. Ensure the glare isn’t too strong on your computer monitor by using window treatments.
4. Bathroom Window Seats
Create window seats by building your tub into bay and bow windows in Omaha. To maintain your privacy, you may use treatments such as curtains, blinds, or shutters.
