Strike the right balance between illumination and ventilation

Bay and bow windows in Wichita, KS aren’t actually separate types of windows. Rather, they’re a combination of several windows arranged in either a trapezoidal arrangement—as with bay windows—or in a curved formation—as with bow windows. The windows that compose them can be of any type. That said, we suggest getting those types of windows that maximize on light and ventilation. For bay windows, that would be a central picture window flanked by either casement windows or double-hung windows. For bow windows, get a neat curve of casement windows!

Make a creative seating nook

To anyone on the outside, bay and bow replacement windows in Wichita jut out elegantly onto the street, creating a very beautiful and noticeable protrusion. On the inside, this creates some space that often goes unused. A great idea here would be to put in a sitting nook. Here are a few tips to go about doing that:

  • Start simple. You don’t need to get overcomplicated with your nook. A custom-fit cushion and some throw pillows are often enough to get comfortable.
  • Add some storage. To better maximize the spaces that bay and bow windows create, you can add a drawer or two underneath your sitting nook that you can fill with books or little knickknacks that you’d use in your little space.
  • Grab some good curtains. Apart from getting our energy-efficient options, you can throw in some curtains to beautify the arrangement and protect you from the sun as you hang out and relax.
