A bay window is a type of window that projects outward from the main walls of a building and forms a bay in a room. It typically has three sections, with the outer sections angled to form a semicircular or polygonal shape.
Bay windows can be found on the ground or upper floors of a building and are often used to add architectural interest and to bring more light into a room. They can also be used as a seating area or as a platform for plants.
