When deciding to replace your existing windows you may want to consider a bay or bow window which are a great feature to any home as well as add value. Bay and bow windows are similar in design but there are some significant differences. Bay windows are made up of three windows, one main larger window in the center with two smaller windows angling inward creating a square or polygonal shape. Bow windows are typically made up 4 or more windows creating more of a gentle curve shape.
Bay and bow windows carry many advantages. The large size of a bay or bow window allow for a great deal of light to enter the home which will brighten up the interior with effects that can’t be duplicated with man made light sources. This can be a great benefit for those suffering through long winter months when sunlight can be scarce and they are a great area to place indoor plants!
Bay and bow windows give your home unique personality and architecture to both the inside and outside to what would normally be a flat wall. They add character to the outside of the home that is unparalleled to any other window style. Inside, the windows brighten the room, give a wide open feeling to the outside views, and add additional space which can be used for additional seating. All of these features give a warm welcoming feel to the home.
