Bay Window Design Ideas

Bay windows are huge window spaces typically made up of three or more panes. The windows project outward from the building to form a bay. Bay areas can be used in a multitude of ways.

If you have a bay window, there are plenty of designs that can be incorporated to maximize your interior décor. If you don’t have one, consider having one installed. They let in lots of natural light and they increase the value of your home.

Take a look at these interior design ideas for bay windows:

  • Sophisticated Sitting Area

Turn your bay window into more than a simple bench. Add a chic, eye-catching coffee table and some decorative accent chairs to create a sitting area to take tea with friends.

  • Pet Lounge Area

If your bay window seat has drawers, consider removing one and turning that small nook into a lounge area for your pet. Both cats and dogs love small, confined dens. Cover the walls in a soft material and add a soft bed. They’ll absolutely love their new hiding space.

  • Reading Station

If you love reading a good book in bright natural light, turn your bay window into your own personal reading nook. You could add shelves to either side of your bay window or create shelving on the bottom in place of drawers. Fit a custom sofa into your nook or use a large reading chair.

  • Suspended Egg Chair

Egg chairs are cozy, chic suspended chairs. They’re the ultimate relaxation chair. You can have one installed into your ceiling or choose a self-suspending chair. These chairs are fun for the kids and the swinging motion will lull you into a sense of relaxation.

  • Dining Area

Turn your bay window into a stunning dining area or breakfast nook. Use a round table to compliment the curve of your window bench (if you have one). Consider getting a table custom fitted to maximize the space of your bay window. Use straight back chairs to save space or even a bench. Enjoy your breakfast in a sun-soaked spot with a great view.

  • Study Area

Take advantage of that natural light and create a study space to work. Add a gorgeous desk and a comfortable chair. You’ll be all set to get some productive work done. Or if you prefer, get a custom table fitted to your bay window.
