This is the methodology of changing the bay window to the desk and the deck.
When it comes to the bay window, most people think of it like this:
This is already the practice of 30 years ago. It is nothing more than treating the bay window as a resting "sleeper", making the bedroom feel bigger and creating a dream for the woman. This practice has been very backward, first of all aesthetic fatigue; secondly, the function is very tasteless, did not make the size bigger of the apartment; if the size control is not good, still sitting uncomfortable.
Today, we have compiled two special trendy bay window practices, which can really increase the effective function, make your home really bigger, and professional design guidance, easy to find the most suitable window plan for you;
In particular, the mainstream bay window is divided into two types, a true bay window, which is the following figure. The window sill is obviously higher than the ground and can only be used as a bay window.
The other is a fake bay window, that is, there is no window sill in the bay window, or the sill can be knocked off. There is no height difference or small difference, and it can be directly used as an extension of the ground, called a false bay window.
Please noted that there are huge differences between the two types of bay windows, which will be explained in detail later.
No.1 Bay window change to desk
Many people know this practice, but it is especially easy to make mistakes, which makes people "leg pain", so I especially remind the following design points: First, only fake window with a width of less than 1.8 meters is recommended.
The reason is very simple. If the width of fake bay window is more than 1.8 meters, even if it is almost the same as the width of the bedroom, don't use it as a window. It is the extension of the bedroom and make the room bigger. It is the most suitable layout. ↓
The second is not to forget the space for the legs, some unqualified designers, and even real estate model homes, such bay window desks often appear.
▲Failed bay window desk case
Did you find that sitting in a chair is simply a punishment, and the knees and calves must be broken. Popularize your professional knowledge, no matter what sitting position, people's legs will reach at least 25~35cm below the table, ↓
Therefore, if the real bay window is used as a desk, the tabletop must protrude at least 30cm in order to be used normally.
Thirdly, the window should be able to open. A lot of people only considered the second point, so they made an oversized, ultra-deep table, as shown below:
Although it is a bit wasteful, the overall use is still decent, just ignore one point, it is too difficult to open the window! Generally, people with a height of 155 to 175 cm have a fixed waist and a radius of 1 to 1.15 meters.
The bay window is used as a desk, the table top is just at the waist position, and the handle of the window is generally in the range of 1.2 meters to 1.5 meters from the ground, so once the table is over 80cm wide, it is difficult to get the window handle.
In summary, the true bay window change to the desk, the window sill should not be too deep, it is best not to exceed 50cm, otherwise it will either kneel or open the window.
No.2 Bay window change to deck
This is the most efficient way to use, invisibly expanding the room outwards into a row of seats + a walkway space, as shown in the comparison chart:
The function can also be varied, such as making a dinning table ↓
Can also be used as a leisure area, afternoon tea area↓
▲ High tea deck
▲Half encirclement deck
Is it very attractive? Don't hurry, if you don't know the following design points, it will still make you "foot pain"
First of all, it is not suitable for fake window, the reason is the same as the desk, it is not worth the loss, it is better to directly use the extension of the room, put on the stool, the most practical.
Second, do not do well with the heel; when the person is sitting, the foot is to extend backwards into the seat 5 to 25 cm ↓
Therefore, the bay window change to deck, the seat surface must protrude at least 10cm, and it will not be squatted when sitting up.
▲Bay window deck profile
If you don't want to make a convex face, you can do it with a bevel.
So when you make your home's bay window, be sure to consider this ergonomic problem.
In particular, this design point is only applicable to relatively short units. If your home's floating window sill itself is particularly high, more than 65cm, you don't have to make it stand out because the legs are basically straight.
Thirdly, the height is different, suitable for different functions; first popularize the height of the seats in different scenes. Generally, the sitting height of the sofa is 40cm~45cm, and the height of the chair is also 43cm~45cm. Only the bar stool can achieve 60cm or more, and some can even Up to 90cm high.
Therefore, only the floating window sill height is less than 50cm, can make a dining table chair, and most of the bay window sills are 60cm high, can only be done as a small bar, you can drink red wine to chat, or as a computer desk, Office or games, afternoon tea, and reading books are also very pleasant.
If your home's bay window is too high, more than 75cm, be sure to add a foot pedal below the bay window, which is a simple stainless steel pole, so that when you sit up, there is a place to put your feet.
Fourth, use a small table or a round table
There is a problem with the bay window deck, that is, the chair can't move. It is necessary to move the table, and the table is very inconvenient to move. Therefore, it is best to leave 40cm for people to pass through, so the table should be smaller.
If you really need to hold it, it is recommended to use a round table, so that the size can be increased by the size, and the seat can be prevented from hitting the waist.
Anyway, remember to ask professionals to design before the renovation, in addition to considering the beauty, but also consider the practicality.
