Bay versus Bow Window: Which is Best for Your Home?

A standard flat, double glazed window can make a vast difference to the look and appeal of your home. However, if you want to create a unique atmosphere utilising double glazing in your house, you may want to consider installing a bay or bow window.

Why opt for a bay or bow window?

Installing a bay or bow window can have a transformative effect on your home, both inside and out. The window will protrude out from the brick façade of the property, creating a distinguished look that isn’t possible with conventional double glazing. The projection of the window will also deliver more room inside the home, ideal for a window seat or as an area to keep ornaments. It will become the central feature of your Warwick home and one that people will look at admiringly.

The main differences

With only a cursory glance, you could be forgiven for believing that there is no difference between a bay and bow window. In actual fact, there are plenty.

  • Size – A bay window features three windows whereas a bay window has at least four, but usually five. The amount of openers is entirely up to you.
  • Style – Bay windows tend to appear more pointed in appearance and suit contemporary homes well. Bow windows have a more rounded feel which lends itself to period homes. Have a look around Warwick to see which double glazing presentation you prefer.
  • Space – Bay windows extend further beyond the property than bow windows, creating more internal space. However, because they are curved, a bow window can be installed on the corner of a property.

Regardless of which type of window you choose, both can offer elegance and style that standard windows cannot. If you own property in Leamington Spa, Kenilworth, Coventry, Rugby and Warwick and are looking for double glazing experts, call our professional sales team.
