Can a bay window be fitted in place of a flat window?

Yes, you are able to replace your flat windows with bay windows, as long as your home’s structure is able to support bay windows.

Bay Windows are available in a range of different styles that can add extra living space as well as creating an attractive feature on your home.  Normally they are fitted at the front of the house and are popular in lounges or living rooms where the extra light is useful.

You can choose from curved or angular bay windows and VEKA frames are available in different colours to match the rest of your windows.

Depending on the type of bay window that you want to install in place of an existing flat window, you will normally need to invest in a small amount of building work to provide the additional footings and replace the flat wall that would normally sit below the window.

As an alternative to a full bay window with brickwork to ground level, you might also want to consider a bow window.  These styles can be fitted as a replacement in the existing aperture while still offering a wider view and some additional space on the windowsill.
