Replacement Bay Windows

Bay windows are an excellent choice for making more space in your home and adding a rich elegant architectural detail, all the while also bringing more of Colorado’s natural light into your home. Bay windows are generally composed of a large picture window flanked by two smaller windows on each side. The windows are often bordered on top with smaller panes of glass.

Although bay windows became widely popular in the 1870s, for some reason they were not really utilized in Denver’s historic architecture. But please don’t let this stand in your way of installing and enjoying this beautiful option.

Why “Bay” Windows?

Dating back to medieval times, the term bay window comes from the large windows that were placed in the “bay” of a castle’s great hall.

Although Denver has very few castles, many of the suburban ranch style homes in the surrounding suburbs and greater metropolitan area did include bay windows — or are perfect to retrofit with modern bay windows.

If your windows need replacing, why not open up your home to more space, more light, and create a stunning seating area where your family and friends will be naturally drawn? Any ordinary windows can be replaced with bay windows. They open up the view, showing vistas of your yard that you otherwise wouldn’t see, and in effect — bring the outdoors in.

Types of Bay Windows, Denver

Bay windows can be customized to your needs, and include:

  • Fixed — using windows that cannot be opened.
  • Vented — these bay windows can open, allowing for greater ventilation in your room.
  • A combination of both, usually with one main center window that does not open, and two smaller side windows which can.
