Do you need a new window for your home but not sure what is the best type of window for your home? Before you make a decision, it is crucial to understand the benefits of each type of windows, so contact a professional window installer like Seacoast Replacement Windows for help. If you are looking for a window that offers a great viewpoint or a mini greenhouse, consider bay or garden windows. In case you wonder what are the differences between the two, we will discuss some of the benefits of each.
Bay windows generally made up of a fixed window in the center and have venting windows on the left and the right side. In New England, double hung windows or casement windows are used as venting windows. Because bay windows stretch outward at a 25-45 degree angle, they can create window seats, which can be an amazing place for reading and relaxation. Bay windows can be custom made to the size you desired and fit virtually any window opening. They offer a great focal point for your living room or dining room.
Garden windows are composed of casement windows as end vents for an unobstructed view. Thus, they add more light to your room and making it feel bigger. Garden windows are angled at a 90-degree angle to make the window look like a box. The standard sizes of garden windows are up to 72 inches X 48 inches. Garden windows create an interior shelf that you can use to grow plants, hence the name.
The benefits of Adding Bay or Garden Window
If you have an area that is not being used, adding a bay window can create a seat that allows you enjoy the great vista or place decorations on the space. Also, they will bring more light to an area. Bay windows also make a room appears to be larger than it may actually be.
On the other hand, adding a garden window can create spaces for your plants to grow and absorb the energy they need to thrive. They are excellent to display your houseplants or herbs.
