Bow windows are a great addition to any home. They create an appealing turret effect on the exterior of your home and flood the interior with light and a panoramic view of the outside. Bow windows are an excellent choice if you want to create a reading nook, window seat, or focal space in your home.
Bow windows are extremely versatile. Similar to bay windows, bow windows are made from combining three to six windows of other styles, typically casement and double-hung windows. This type of window is a classic way to enhance the elegance of your space.
Bow window installations can be complex. Make sure you select a professional window installer like Bavarian Windows for your new bow window installation.
Bay Window or Bow Window – Which Should I Choose?
A lot of people aren’t sure if they should go with a bay window or bow window and that’s because there are so many similarities between the two. They both stand out from your home in an appealing fashion and add more square footage.
However, bow windows are much larger than bay windows. They have a more rounded curvature which is unlike bay windows which tend to be more angular. The middle window of a bay window is typically a large picture window, whereas bow windows traditionally consist of all the same style of window.
Bow windows are a mark of traditional-style homes, but they can be styled for a more modern look. Talk to a window designer from Bavarian Windows to choose the right style for your home.
Bow Window Styles
Bow windows have been a popular architectural feature of homes since the 15th century. As time has progressed, so have the variety and style of these windows.
You can choose from different angles, window styles, and architectural features to suit your bow windows. Bow window styles are typically supported at a 45 to 150 degree angle.
