With their impressive style and ability to house a window seat or accent furniture, bow windows bring a layer of sophistication to your home’s architectural design. Though bow windows are similar to bay windows, their design is slightly different, and depending on your home’s other structural elements, one may be better suited for you than the other.
Bow windows project from the home’s exterior in a curved shape and are composed of four to six windows. This curved appearance is what distinguishes a bow window from a bay window: Because bow windows have more glass panes, they can achieve a gradual curve rather than the hexagonal shape of bay windows. Bay windows protrude farther from the home than bow windows. The structural design of your home, such as its proximity to the property line and its overhang, may determine whether a bay or bow window is best for you.

Bow windows provide sophistication and elegance and also increase the market value of your home. Their profile is slimmer than the bay window, making it a better option for homes that are close to sidewalks or have an unsupportive structural design for bay windows. Because bow windows are made up of four to six windows, they bring in more natural light. With a bow window installation, you also get the added benefit of unobstructed panoramic views you can enjoy from the comfort of your window seat.
If you need increased ventilation, however, you may want to consider other window options. The complex design of the bow window makes it less likely that there will be operable windows that allow for ventilation. Because bow windows are made with more glass and take up more space, they are more expensive to install or replace than bay windows.
