Have you ever thought of having the view of a lifetime? Are you ready to make your living room a living dream? Stay tuned for my 40 stylish bay window ideas that will blow your mind.
Bay window is a protruding window that is projected outward from the walls of a building. These types of windows make a beautiful bay in the living room with an astounding view from inside and outside. They can be angular or curved or maybe can run over many floors.
Most of them were used in the Baroque era to add an ornamental addition to the buildings. They always make the room visually appear bigger than it is and give the most amazing views from the outside that you will never achieve with a regular flat window.
Don’t go anywhere because I am about to present the most stylish 40 bay window ideas to give you an idea on how to make your living room and outer part of the house stunning.
1. Luxuriously Breathtaking
These unique bay windows are so simple, but at the same time, they give a fantastic kick to the living room. They compliment the beautiful grey sofa with hints of burned orange and amazing patterned draperies.
With plain white frames, the black columns in between add amazing contrast. The view, though, is perfect and totally on point.
2. Brick and bay, a Combination that Slays
These wooden bay windows are the perfect addition to the bricks and the wooden door. They have white columns in between on the lower glass and pretty patterns on the upper glass.
