Bay Windows in Kansas City
What Is a Bay Window?
Bay windows are a combination of three or more windows projecting outward from a home’s exterior wall in a square or polygonal design forming a “bay” inside the room.
Traditionally, they were associated with the Victorian era and became an architectural staple in the congested city of San Francisco because of their illusion of added space. Not only do these windows add beauty, space, and an impressive 180-degree view of the outdoors, they also bring a distinctive touch to any home design. Add a counter or a bench, and your bay window becomes an ideal destination for seating or display.

Can I replace my bay windows myself?
