Installing a bay window is relatively affordable, especially if you do it yourself. Kitchen window styles can dramatically enhance a kitchen's appeal, value and design.

Ideas for kitchen windows include box and angled bays. They are available preassembled, but both could be a custom creation. While this will give you options in size and other design considerations, it also means that it will cost more. You could invest as little as a few thousand dollars, but a reasonably sized, typical 3-window bay could cost much more if you decide custom is the best solution.

An angled bay is probably the most typical window that comes to mind when someone says "bay window." It is just about the most universal kitchen bay window there is, especially versions of it like the smaller, preassembled kits that work well above the kitchen sink. A bigger angled bay extends across the interior of your kitchen and is finished as an expansion of the floor area or with a built-in window seat. The beauty of the bays is that they reach out to the landscape, bringing in natural light and views. As a small kitchen solution, the angled bay window can be a cost-effective way to gain extra space and light.

A box bay is a simple, rectangular form that has side walls perpendicular to the wall of the house. While a box bay typically has a group of windows at its front, having windows on either side is not a requirement. Not only will a box bay add an abundance of light to the kitchen, but it will also maximize the amount of floor space.

Bay windows are a great way to add elegance to your kitchen. Review your kitchen layout and structural points in your home to confirm whether you can add bay windows for more space and light.
