Bay Windows

Whetstone Windows & Doors specialises in period and traditional style windows and doors, perfect for established traditional homes and traditionally inspired new homes in Melbourne and greater Victoria.

Bay or Bow windows are known for creating a stylish and often dramatic presence to a home. They present a decorative look to both the inside and outside of the home. They create more space inside and increase airflow and natural light into the home.

Whether you are replacing traditional windows or looking for timber windows for your new home or renovation, bay windows may be a great choice. 

What is a Bay or Bow Window?

Bay Windows are made up of a front section, then two return sections (like a three sided box).

Bow Windows typically made up of three to five sections to form a radius or curved effect, more sections can be added depending on the space. The window sections can be Casement, Fixed, Awning or Double-Hung or a combination of these types.

When to use a Bay Window

Bay windows are used for many reasons:

  • They are perfect for increased ventilation as you can have multiple openings for fresh air to enter.
  • Bay windows can incorporate double glazing to maximise energy efficiency.
  • They add value to the home as they add aesthetic appeal to both the inside and outside of a home.
  • Bay windows have a panoramic view to allow more natural light to enter the home.
  • They are used extensively in period style homes but can also be used to great effect in contemporary architecture.
  • Bay Windows can create extra space inside of the home and can be used in a multitude of ways to create different areas of use including window seating within the bay area.
