Many people love bay windows because they add more space, light and ventilation to homes. This style consists of both operational and fixed windows that project outward from the wall. This way, you can turn the added space into functional window seats.


Bay Windows from Huff ‘N Puff

Huff ‘N Puff lists the popular window design ideas to make the most of your bay replacement windows in Albany:

  1. If you have long bay windows, you can create a long seat and add a dining table. This will allow you to entertain more guests during mealtime.
  2. Make your window seat more comfortable by having a cushion upholstered and adding cozy pillows.
  3. Create inspirational study areas by leaving space for tables or desks.
  4. You can build bookshelves on both sides of the window to have a cozy reading nook.
  5. If you want a cottage look for your window seats, use beadboard panels. These add dimension and texture to your window seat.
  6. You can hide radiators and plumbing under the window’s seat. Just make sure it is vented properly and has easy access when needed.
  7. Corner window seats make good places for breakfast nooks. You can use window treatments for added privacy.
  8. You can build storage cabinets and/or drawers underneath the seat. If you place this type of bay window in the kitchen, you can store frequently used pots and pans inside drawers. You can also have these windows installed in the children’s room and use the storage for clothes or toys.
  9. Use a pop of color to make your bay replacement windows in Albany, NY, the focal point of the room. Make sure you choose a shade that goes well with your home’s current color scheme.

Installation of product was professional and the installers, Cosmo and Joe, treated me like family. All questions were answered and left the site neat and clean.

Efficient and unobtrusive, the crew was in and out of installing gutter helmets and helmet heaters on my house within four hours. They were sure to clean up any debris that was left over. I am very pleased with the whole installation process.

The Gutters look great! Cosmo and Nigel were very courteous, friendly, thorough and professional. They did a wonderful job and took the time to answer any questions and advise us about the incredible warranty. So glad we did this!
