When you need to visually expand the space of your room you should consider Bay and Bow windows which will create such an illusion. The projected bay or bow window curve will give you a wider angle view of the outside, something which a regular window cannot do. Bay windows were being built in different epochs, they became especially popular at the end of the 19th century and up to the present they attract many homeowners.
Being a version of a bay window, a bow window will also open up a room and create a spacious appearance allowing more light to enter and of course will add exquisite style and glamour to your place. The difference of a bow window is that it has about 4 or 5 sections and therefore creates a curved shaped and a circular appearance. Having a larger number of glass panes, bow windows allow more light into the room than bay windows and they also can be placed around the corner of a house, for a greater panoramic view. Although, bow windows offer a smaller nook space since they don’t protrude that much from the wall.
How They Are Built
All projecting window constructions are generally called bay windows. A typical bay window consists of a fixed window in the center and casement windows joined to it from every side. A bow window usually consists of 4 or more windows forming a curve. Our bay and bow windows have reinforced frames and sashes to keep air and water out. Better insulation is provided by reinforced vinyl chambers and triple-sealed frames. For special features please refer to our Casement Windows page.
