As a homeowner, surely you've seen bow windows in a friend or neighbor's home and noticed how much class they can provide to a living room, home office, or breakfast book. These windows are perfect for creating a comfortable seating area for curling up with a good book, talking on the phone with a friend, or just for relaxing. They also offer a great view of your garden or even the street outside, and they will deliver more light into your home. Are you a plant lover? If so, bow windows can be a fantastic location for plants that need a lot of sunshine!
These beautiful windows are created from a minimum of four and up to eight casement windows attached together to form an arch. They are comparable to a bay window, except for the fact they are rounded and semi-circular.

What's the Difference Between Bow and Bay Windows?
- Bay windows have three openings, and a bow window can have more than three openings - sometimes four or five.
- Bay windows consist of a picture window and then two other smaller windows on each side, and a bow window is curved, creating a rounded appearance on the outside of the home
- Bay windows protrude further out of the wall, adding extra space.
- Bow windows let in a lot more light since they have more glass panes when compared with bay windows.
