These bay windows are usually seen over an entrance where a porch would be. They are on the second floor of the home instead of the first. Oriel is a word that is close to the phrase porch in Latin.

When you think about a bay window, this is probably what you picture. This type of window is very traditional and has two front panes that are parallel to each other. On each side of those windows is a slanted pane. There are three or more panes included, but there can be more if the space is large enough.

They will give you even more natural light and space inside your home and will add interest to the exterior of the home as well.
If you don’t have a wall that is large enough for a bay window, you can still have one if you choose the box shape. These windows are what they sound like, they are boxy in shape.
