Bow windows are a type of curved bay window. Their shape is intended to create space and provide a broader view of the outside. Similar to the bay window, they extend beyond the foundation of the home, creating a window seat inside.
Bow windows are typically made out of multiple windows of the same style. BGV makes four, five, and six-lite windows, and they are available in a variety of sizes. These windows are best installed on the upper level, but they can be installed on the ground floor as well.
One of the biggest advantages of bow windows is their energy efficiency. They can open multiple windows simultaneously, allowing for plenty of ventilation and beautiful outdoor views. Because of their curved shape, bow windows work well in a variety of rooms, from living rooms to kitchens and bedrooms.
Aside from adding visual interest, bow windows can also increase the value of your home. Because of their grand appearance, bow windows are often associated with historic architecture. However, they can also be used in modern homes to add a touch of elegance and luxury.
A bow window can be a beautiful addition to your home’s design, but it may not be suitable for all home styles. If you’re unsure whether a bow window is right for you, book a home consultation with one of BGV’s qualified sales representatives.
