A Look at the Pros and Cons of Bay Windows in a Business Office

Posted on

If you are working on remodeling your business office space, considering replacement window options will take a lot of your time. You are likely to come across bay windows and think that these unique windows would really do a lot for your office space, and they definitely can. Take a look at some of the pros and cons of replacing one of your traditional windows with a set of bay windows instead. 

Pro: Bay windows open up a small or cramped space. 

Bay windows in general are going to be much larger and take up more floor-to-ceiling space in a room. If you are working out of a rather small business office, having this open view of the outdoors that is much larger can make the space feel much less cramped or small. The introduction of natural light through these windows helps to open things up and make the space feel larger than it is. 

Con: Bay windows are going to be a little more expensive than regular windows. 

When compared to regular windows, bay windows can be a little more on the costly side because they are more decorative and unique, not to mention larger. For some business owners, the extra expense can be a bit of a concern. However, the extra cost is well worth it if you desire larger windows that have a more aesthetic appeal to them. 

Pro: Bay windows add a little dimension to a square space. 

Bay windows are typically installed in a protruding fashion. In other words, the windows are not installed flush with the wall; they kind of protrude out from the exterior of the house. This is not only a good way to add dimension to the outside of the building, but it is also a good way to break up the monotony of a basic, square room. Many people who have bay windows use the added space inside of the room in front of a bay window as a window seat, but in an office setting, the extra space could easily be used for shelving, plants, or other decorative items. 

Con: Bay windows can be a little easier to break into. 

Bay windows usually open in a swing-open fashion, and the larger-than-usual windows may create concerns for security. However, if you prefer, you can have bay windows installed that don't open at all if you feel security is a concern.
