The beauty, spaciousness, and elegance of your home can be greatly improved by installing the proper windows. Bow and bay windows have become ever more popular in recent years. Not only are they aesthetically more pleasing than the conventional square window that came with your home, they offer better insulation against the elements. They seal better and thus can help make a difference on your monthly utility bills.
Replacement bay and bow windows
There are some basic differences between these types of windows. Bay windows consist of three window slates in angled positions. Whereas the bow window usually has four or five slates, and are curbed in a way that give off a rounder appearance.
Bay windows protrude further into the exterior of the home, leaving more floor space in the interior. The wider, more rounded structure of the bow design make them ideal for those who want to maximize the amount of light coming into the room.
The size options of bay windows and bow windows come down to the number of panes you want and the angle you are looking for. Bay windows are three-sided.
However, you can get them at a 25, 35, or 45-degree angles. It is possible to get up to six panes installed if you purchase a bow window depending on the size of the room.
