Bow Window Details:
Bow windows resemble bay windows, however they tend to have additional panels (generally four to six) which are consistent in size. Having more panels, the bow window gives a semi circular or, “bow look.” The choice between having a fixed, open, as well as a combination of both is possible with Bow windows.
Since the angles are less sharp, they require more width. This creates less space for a window seat. Bow windows allow a significant amount of natural light.
Bay/Bow Window Considerations
- Fixed windows offer better insulation and an airtight seal, which in return are the most energy efficient.
- Open windows allow the option for ventilation in the desired room.
- Fixed windows will offer a better view, there is no sash or hardware to get in the way.
