There’s a good reason why Chattanooga is nicknamed “Scenic City.” Spectacular views of the Appalachians’ many ridges and mountains surround this city, nestled into the Tennessee River valley. If your home is well-situated, why not add a bay window as one of your upcoming home improvement projects?
Bay windows make an elegant addition to your home. They came into fashion during the Gothic Revival period of architecture, and many Victorian-era homes feature bay windows. These windows, which angle outward from the home at 30° to 45°, add space and light to any room. They also help bring the outdoors inside—you’ll get a panoramic view when you’re standing at your replacement window.
If you’d like to add a bay window but aren’t sure where to put it, think about your existing house windows. Do you have a large picture window in a room already? You can almost certainly replace it with a bay window. You should also consider bow windows, which angle outward from the house less sharply. A bay or bow window will improve any room, from kitchens to dining rooms to bedrooms. If you have a large atrium, you might be able to install a multi-story bay window, flooding your home with light and making the surrounding scenery an integral feature of your home.
Bay windows aren’t just a way to emphasize the landscape around your home. With the addition of a window seat, a bay window becomes a quiet retreat—the perfect place to curl up with a book and a cup of tea on a snowy winter day, or a place for the kids to do their homework and enjoy an after-school snack. You can even install window seats with hidden storage, add them to eating areas for extra seating, or use them to hide unattractive plumbing or radiators. With a comfortable cushion and a few decorative pillows, your new window seat will quickly become the most popular spot in the house.
