Bay Windows & Bow Windows

Bay and bow windows are created by combining three or more windows together so that they angle out beyond the house wall. They can be casement, double-hung or picture units depending on the need. By using more windows, bay and bow windows allow more light in and also give you extra space inside your room.

What are bay and bow windows?

Bay and bow windows literally expand the size of your room while bringing in a flood of natural light. This is because they’re made from a group of three or more windows that extend out from your home’s exterior. They’re one of the best windows for living rooms, stair landings, or bedrooms since they create unique spaces and can frame big views.

What separates bay from bow? A bay usually consists of three windows, while a bow is a larger array of windows in a semi-circle. Bays are often used in traditional homes like Victorians or Tudors, while bows can have a more modern look. Find the best bay and bow windows for your home below.
