need advice: replace with picture window or bay window?

Gregory HiemenzOctober 7, 2010

Hi all, I'm in need of advice on replacing our big living room picture window. More style/curb appeal/home value advice, really.

Here is my home:

Should I replace the big window to the right of the front door with another picture/double hung combination? Or should I spend the extra $2k and make it a bay window? I was kinda thinking that the bay may add some curb appeal by adding depth to an otherwise flat front. But, i can't decide whether that is worth the extra cost. Would a bay window add any more value to a house than a picture window of the same size?

Thanks ahead of time for the advice!

I think a bay window would definitely up the curb appeal and the looks of the house. If you don't mind the extra 2k go for it.

I would probably do it as well and you will have to probably run a 30 degree bay depending on the depth of the overhang outside.

Plan on transplanting those two azaleas.
