What is the Difference? Bay vs. Bow Windows
You know that you want a cute little window seat or just to give your home a little extra curb appeal, but your not quite sure what you should actual be searching for. Is it a bow window or a bay window? Either way, adding a projection window (a little window jargon for you) is a great way for you to add to your curb appeal, expand your view, and to also increase your rooms living space. But which one is best for you? Here is a little overview of both the bay window and the bow window to help you make the best decision for you and your home.
The Bay Window:
A bay window is the combination of three or more windows that angle out beyond the exterior wall. Our Certified Master Installers can expertly install bay windows in four projection angles up to a 90 degree box bay. Since the window protrudes outside the wall, you can enjoy an extended view and even additional seating space.
The Bow Window:
Similar to bay windows, bow windows extend beyond the exterior wall, but sweep away from the wall in a graceful arch of four, five, or six windows. This elegant window style is typically larger than the bay window style and has more glass area because of a curve in lieu of corners. As with bay windows, adding a window seat to your bow window can be a quick and easy room addition. If you’re adding a bench seat below your window, consider it an opportunity for extra storage! If you’re looking to make your room appear bigger and brighter, bow windows are the perfect solution.
