BAY AND BOW WINDOWS

Bay and bow windows are prized for their ability to invite warm natural light, open up smaller rooms, and offer panoramic views.

WHAT ARE BAY AND BOW WINDOWS?

A bay window is often made out of a large centre window and two narrower windows on either side. Because the side windows are set at an angle, the bay protrudes beyond the outer wall.

Like bay windows, a bow window projects beyond the outside wall, but is often made up of four or more small, identically sized windows, creating a curving rather than angular impression. Bow windows take up more space than bay windows and are best suited for large rooms.

Bay and bow windows can be made by cutting individual rough apertures in the wall to fit standard-sized windows, or they can be mulled (joined) together at the factory and shipped and installed as a single huge unit.

Bay and bow windows are prized for their ability to invite warm natural light, open up smaller rooms, and offer panoramic views. They can also be used as a cosy reading nook, with additional storage built beneath the seat.
