15 Ideas in Designing Dining Rooms with Bay Window

Some home’s architecture includes a bay window. A bay window is a window space that projects outward from an outside wall. It could be an arc or it can have a flat front with angled sides. When it is curved it is called bow window while if it has angles on both sides, it is called canted. A bay window can be used for different areas of the house. Sometimes, a bench is added into it or a table too.
