Bay windows are one of the most popular and recognizable types of window installations. Common on Victorian homes, bay windows feature a central window with two angled flanker windows.
There are many benefits to installing a custom bay window. For instance, bay windows as a visual centerpiece in any room, drawing in more natural light, while creating additional interior space. They also add value to a home, as they increase square footage and visual interest.

Bay windows and bow windows combine several smaller windows to create one large window installation. The key difference between the two: Bay windows utilize three windows installed to create a trapezoidal shape, while bow windows may use up to six windows.
Most bay windows feature three windows, including a larger middle picture window, with two matching windows, or “flankers,” on either side. Most commonly, the flanker windows protrude out at a roughly 45-degree angle and are about half the width of the center windows. Double-hung or casement windows are a popular choice for flankers.
This type of window is most identified with Victorian architecture. Yet, bay windows can be designed to match nearly any home type, from a Craftsman bungalow, to a classic Colonial.
Ultimately, bay windows should be custom built for the size of the window opening. A properly-sized bay window is important for sturdiness and durability, as improperly sized bays will bend and sag away from the home over time.
