Bay windows make a style statement in any home. From the outside, they add charm and elegance to a property, while inside they create a more spacious feel to a room and allow living spaces to be flooded with natural light.
If you have bay windows or are considering a bay window installation for your home, you might be wondering how to style your room to take advantage of the space and wider views that these period-feature windows deliver.
With over 100 years’ combined experience in installing windows in homes across Northamptonshire, the team at MO Windows knows a thing or two about how to style your living space and where to place your furniture to make the most of your bay window area. Read on for some bay window design inspiration…
A handy alcove for additional seating
There is always a need for more seating in a busy family home and a bay window is the perfect place to install window seating to create a cosy space in which to curl up with a cuppa and a good book on a rainy afternoon.
Bench style seating works best in a bay window alcove, and when dressed with plump cushions that compliment your décor, everyone will want to make use of this stylish and comfortable seating area.
Bedroom bay window styling
If you are lucky enough to have a bedroom with a bay window alcove, it’s a great space to place a dressing table. The natural light from a bay window will make styling your hair and putting on make-up effortless.
Another advantage of placing a dressing table in the alcove of a bay window is that it creates the feel of additional space around the bed, making your sleeping sanctuary seem less cluttered and a more relaxing place to be.
House hidden storage spaces
With a little creativity, you can transform your bay window alcove into extra storage space.
The addition of built-in cabinets with sliding doors will help to maintain a clean, uncluttered look, hiding CD collections, books, and board games away so they won’t need dusting. But never fear, they will always be within easy reach so you can triumph in the annual family Trivial Pursuits challenge!
Stylish shutters add timeless elegance
Installing shutters to your bay windows will complement the interior of your home.
We suggest opting for a neutral colour, such as pale grey or cream, or a wood effect to create a timeless style that will work with any colour scheme you choose both now and in the future.
Energy-efficient, high-security bay windows from the experts
Far from being suitable for use in period-style homes only, bay windows have evolved into an affordable option for contemporary homes too.
With added security features that utilise the latest technology in locking mechanisms, we only supply high-quality energy-efficient bay windows that are as practical and functional as they are beautiful to look at.
