Bay Windows

Bay windows traditionally feature three glass panels which extend beyond the walls of the home which can make the room appear more spacious. With bay windows, the middle glass panel tends to be larger than the two side panels and is generally considered a ‘picture window’. You can choose from several different options when it comes to bay windows, in terms of window style, colour, material and finish. These choices will come down to personal preference and the style of your home.

Double glazed bay windows can be place in any room but are particularly popular for living rooms and sometimes bedrooms. Add a wonderful feature to your home today with a bay window from Quickslide.

Bay Window Design

Bay windows are traditional in appearance; however, they can suit both modern and heritage styled homes. Depending on the window specification you choose they can portray an entirely different appearance. Bay windows extend from the walls of the home at an angle. Whilst bay sash windows often consist of three frames their angle means they can give you more floor space, perfect for making smaller rooms feel much bigger. Bay casement windows can be configured in numerous window frames. What is the difference between bay windows and bow windows? Find out on the blog.

Bay Window Installation

Bay windows are made to measure and can be constructed to fit in with your home in the sizes and specification chosen by you. Bay windows feature a front section and two sides. The side window frames will be connected to the front using either a 90-degree bay-pole or a variable bay-pole allowing you to install the bay windows at a custom angle. If you are considering adding a bay window to your home or replacing your traditional bay windows, Quickslide will be able to supply a new modern bay window solution made at our state-of-the-art production facility in Brighouse, Yorkshire.

Bay windows are an impressive feature to any home. Replacement bay windows from Quickslide are not only stylish, but also very secure and energy efficient. Bay windows can add value to your home and will be an appealing feature as they add a feel of more space and natural light.

Bay windows are made up of multiple frames and will therefore be more expensive than a single window. The single frame in the bay window will not necessarily cost more than any other single window in your home. The price of a bay window will depend on the window specification but can cost as little as £1,400 for a bay using sliding sash windows. Your installer will be able to confirm whether any additional installation costs apply to bay windows.

Yes, bay windows are worth it. Bay windows are formed of multiple frames with multiple panes of glass and will therefore let lots of light into your home. The internal surrounding area around the bay windows will be lit from every direction making the room appear bigger and brighter. Besides, bay windows provide curb appeal and can add a considerable amount of value to the building. The only downside to bay windows is that they may be more complex to install than a typical standard window and the many benefits will only last if the bay window has been installed correctly.

Any of our windows can have integral blinds. If your windows are south facing, the large glass area may cause a high rise in internal temperature during the summer months and integral blinds may therefore add an element of temperature control.
