Bay and Bow Windows

Overview

Bay and Bow windows can dramatically improve the curb appeal and add value to your home.

Bay and bow are window combinations that project outward from a home. These windows provide an illusion of a larger space and provide a spectacular view of the outdoors.

Although bay and bow windows have there similarities, there are many differences between the two. Both are very beautiful and add a nice touch to your home. Bay windows are made up of three varying sized windows. The center window is typically the biggest with two smaller windows beside it. The two smaller windows are angled from the center window to create a larger view from different angles. A bow window has three to six windows that are all the same size. This gives a curved look to the window.
