Do you need new replacement windows for your home? Tired of your old, energy-inefficient windows? If you want windows that can add unique beauty to your home’s exterior, bow windows are a good option.
While bow windows are very similar to bay windows, the two aren’t exactly the same. Bow windows typically include four or more window units in a radial or bow formation and are often rounder in shape than bay windows—they can almost be thought of as curved bay windows.
Bow windows offer a number of advantages—they:
Can be energy-efficient: Picture windows and casement windows, which can be used for bow windows, are very energy-efficient and can help you reduce your heating and cooling costs.
Add architectural character to homes: Bow windows are one of the most architecturally unique windows available! They can add distinct beauty and character to your home’s exterior.
Enhance your home’s interior: In addition to enhancing your home’s exterior, bow windows also make a difference on the inside. The interior recess formed by the protruding exterior design can be used for anything, from a cushioned window seat to a plant display!
Provide great views: Do you want a window that offers expansive views and highlights your home’s landscaping? Bow windows are excellent for this.
Can brighten dim rooms: Bow windows are big and, therefore, let in a lot of natural light. They can make any room brighter and seem more airy and spacious.
Can help boost curb appeal and value: Because of their architectural character, bow windows can help increase your home’s curb appeal and marketing value. This can be especially beneficial if you’re moving in a few years and want to up the resale value of your house.
