Benefits of Bay Windows
While bay and bow windows both add interest to your home from the outside and the feeling of more space on the inside, they are very different features. A bay window consists of three windows, with a picture window in the center that is fixed and two smaller windows on the side that open, either as single or double hung windows or with a crank. The two windows on the side are called flankers and are angled to tuck back against the exterior walls of the house while the picture window stands out in front of the house. This creates a shelf inside the house that can be used for display, plants, as a window seat, or as clear and open space to enjoy the light. Bay windows offer more unobstructed light into your home because the center window is a flat continuous picture window with no sashes or other obstructions. Because bay windows are more sharply angled, their provide a more stark visual impact from the outside of your home.
Benefits of Bow Windows
When reviewing your options before installing bay and bow replacement windows, it is important to consider the visual impact of either choice. While bay windows consist of three windows, one large picture window and two smaller angled flanker windows, bow windows are groups of windows all of the same size built in a curve. Bow windows are grouped in sets of three or six to allow for a curved look. All of the windows in a group of bow windows will open, increasing your ventilation options. Because all of the bow windows are designed to open, the visual field will not be as clean as that found in a picture window. Double hung and single hung windows will be obstructed by sashes, and even casement windows will not be as clear as a window that is fixed. However, the choice between ventilation and visibility is one the homeowner must decide, with expert assistance from bay and bow windows.
