9 Bay Window Living Room Layouts (with Floor Plans)

Bay Window Living Room Layouts

A bay window in a living room is a nice feature that can add interest and character to a space, but it can provide a predicament when it comes to arranging furniture because we typically position furniture against straight walls.

Here we look at various layouts of living rooms with bay windows to see the possibilities that a bay window offers and the best ways to make the most of this feature.

Large Curved Bay Window Layout

Large Curved Bay Window Layout

This living room features a very large curved bay window that occupies one entire wall of the room. A two-seater sofa has been positioned in the bay window space, which makes use of the floor area, and creates a nice contrast between the straight lines of the couch and the soft curves of the bay window.

A further two-seater sofa has been positioned facing the fireplace at a right angle to the other sofa to create an L-shape that works well for socializing or relaxing.

Minimalist Living Room Layout

Minimalist Living Room Layout

A minimalist look has been created in this living room with a modern, angular bay window. A sofa has been used as a definition point to separate the living room from the open plan dining room behind it, and an armchair placed at an angle creates a social vibe.

The glass tables allow light to pass through, which emphasizes the minimalist look and also makes for a brighter space. Sheer curtains in the bay window also increase the amount of natural light able to shine into the living room.

Triple Bay Window Layout

Triple Bay Window Layout

This living room features a wall of three windows arranged at angles to create an interesting bay window. The shape of the bay window has been celebrated by positioning furniture in front of the windows, which mirror the angles, including two chairs and a side table.

The furniture is not bulky, which allows the light from the windows to flow through and maximize the brightness in the space. Though a sofa may have made for a more comfortable seating area, this would have blocked off the view of the bay window and restricted the flow of natural light.

Lounge Diner Layout

Lounge Diner Layout

This open plan living room and dining room benefits from a bay window which has been used in the layout to help define the dining area.

The sofas in the room have been positioned around an area rug and a coffee table which signifies the use of this portion of the space as the seating and socializing area.

The bay window has a dining table and dining chairs placed in front of it, which works well because it means the bay window isn’t visually blocked off, and diners will be able to enjoy the view out of the windows. The lack of curtains or a window dressing allows the windows themselves to be the focus of the room.

Relaxing Bay Window Layout

The large bay window in this living room is the focus of the space, adding a luxury vibe to the room. This has been enhanced by the use of a chaise lounge in the bay window with sumptuous cushions, where the owner could lay back and relax while enjoying the view from the window.

Large houseplants at either side of the bay window are a great way to invite the outdoors in, and this also helps to link the view of greenery through the window to the interior of the living room.

Window Seat Living Room Layout

One brilliant way to make the most of a bay window is to install a window seat in the natural curves of the wall. This has been achieved in this living room, with wainscoting to tie in the window seat to the rest of the interior.

A round ottoman positioned in front of the bay window helps to highlight the shape of the curved seating, while an additional sofa and armchairs create a separate lounging area.

The layout of this living room has been kept very simple and minimal, which serves to place the emphasis on the bay window as the focus of the room.

Two sofas have been positioned facing each other with a coffee table in the middle, which defines this space as the seating area. Sofas which face each other are great for encouraging social interaction and getting people to spend time away from screens.

Traditional Bay Window Layout

Traditional Bay Window Layout

This room features a large bay window which is one of the main focuses in the space. A sofa and armchair have been angled inside the bay window to face each other slightly; this not only makes for a social seating area, but it also mirrors the angle of the bay window to link it to the design of the interior.

A large rug in the middle of the room helps to emphasize the generous proportions of the space, while the glass table allows light through to maintain a bright atmosphere.

Curtains have not been used on the bay windows, which means the views framed by the windows themselves are the center of attention, and these views operate as artwork in the space.
