Exactly What Is a Bay or Bow Window?
Both of these popular window styles are actually created by configuring three or more windows to create a bank of windows that angles or curves outward from your home’s exterior wall. Whether your home can accommodate a bay or bow window depends on a variety of factors, including the size of the window opening. When you ask us to schedule a free consultation and estimate at your home in the Kansas City metro area, one of our experts will evaluate your window opening, exterior siding, and other features and let you know whether a bay or bow window is a good option for you. In the meantime, here’s a more detailed look at each of these window styles:
A bay window is usually configured with a lovely picture window as the centerpiece and two complementary windows on either side. Although the side windows can also be picture windows, many homeowners choose to flank their fixed center window with double-hung or casement windows, so they can open them for ventilation.
This elegant window option is created by configuring four or more windows—usually all of the same size and style–into an arc-shaped window structure that extends gracefully out from the exterior wall. Bow windows are typically larger than bay windows, which allows them to provide a panoramic view of the outdoor landscape.
