A bay window is the most cost-effective way to increase a room’s square footage and thereby increasing the square footage of your home. This not only directly affects your listing square footage and home value, but also gives you immediate extra room in your house.
Almost any regular window can be converted into a bay or bow window. And because they are usually large window openings you will usually also get additional window openings which will also increase your home’s airflow.

What’s the Best Place for a Bay Window?
Typically when people think of bay windows they think of the front living room. There is a big window and a bench seat that everyone loves to sit on…including the cat.
This is still true.
the living room is one of the best places where a bay window can go. Will developments over the years, however, virtually any window is a possibility now.
The Lving Room
As mentioned about this is usually where it all begins and ends. This is the spot most people want to add a bay window. It also usually makes the most sense, it gives everyone a new spot for family life, more square footage, and more character to your home.
The kitchen window is a really great place to add a bay window, especially if your kitchen has a window right above the kitchen sink. This typically gives more space for things that need a spot around the kitchen sink. It can also allow for more natural light to enter the kitchen, as some can end up being a little dark.
This is also a great addition for the plan lovers who need that extra light to decorate the home.
You wouldn’t normally think of this, especially if you don’t have a window in the bathroom.
Obviously, there are privacy concerns that have to be thought through, but a bay window in the bathroom can not only increase the space in the room, it can also make it feel like more of a retreat.
Natural light, as mentioned already is a huge benefit for any room. It gives a calming feel. A lot of people will also use natural light more than electrical lights.
In Calgary, this can be. a massive benefit during the summer months when the sun stays up well into the evening.
The Dining Room
Another great example of a place that will benefit from a bay window, if you have one, is the dining room. Adding a bay window to the dining room can really give it a sense of class and a special touch for all those family gatherings.
