Bow and bay windows make excellent additions to any home. Thanks to their multi-window configuration, they can easily brighten up your indoors and capture breathtaking views of your outdoors. They also provide an extra space that you can turn into a seating nook or a storage area. With proper placement and design, they can create an elegant focal point.
While these window styles look similar at the first glance, they actually have key differences that you should be aware of. This way, you can choose the right option for your home’s unique specifications.
Bay windows are composed of three windows that protrude out of your house. They can be formed in either box or angled orientations to match your home’s style. The center unit is usually a large picture window, while the ones on the side can be either casement or double-hung windows.
Bow windows are made of a series of four to six windows that also protrude from your home’s exterior wall. Unlike bay units, bow windows comprise equal-size smaller windows and tend to have a gentler curve. This means they can wrap around the corner of your house, giving you unique angles of your outdoor views. As your trusted window company, we suggest bow windows if you want to optimize your home’s natural lighting and ventilation.
