Desperately need windows

March 29, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I bought my house 3 years ago and have been making updates since then. This spring/summer I would like to add some windows to the front of my house. However, I can't figure out what would look the best since there are those two smaller windows already. I was considering putting in a bay window on the main floor to the left of the front door (this is the living room). The upstairs left is a master bathroom and upstairs right area is the master bedroom. At some point, I do plan on adding a front porch too. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!,

Hi. Where does the internal wall between the master bedroom and bathroom fall? Is it between the two small windows, or are they both in the bedroom?

The two small windows are at the top of the stairs. The walls are on the outside of the windows, two seperate walls with a landing at the top. So they aren't in either room they are in the landing. I could take them both out and put in one window.

So, maybe the question is what kind of windows would look good in the master bed and bath? Because placement on the front of the house will ultimately be dictated by your interior layout. Can you provide image of those walls from interior too? Also if you could show on the front or indicate by some measure where the 2 story floor line is :-)

Of course, Lessismore is right. How it works from the outside is at least as important as how they look from the outside. But I think, as Garden Design suggested, it would look good from the outside to combine those two windows into one, and then consider whether a window on each side might also work.

An inspiration pic for future consideration
reposition the door
add windows on the left
larger and well spaced windows on the upper level
A wrap around porch in the future
Of course, exterior painting will be required

The second story floor line is even with the exterior light right above the door. I attached inside pictures, first the master bedroom, then living room. My house sits way off the road, so privacy isn't an issue with the windows.
