Bay vs Bow Windows: What’s the Difference?

Article Summary: 

This article discusses the differences between bay windows and bow windows, both of which are projection windows that project outward from a home's wall. Bay windows feature three window components and create a deeper and more angular protrusion from the wall, while bow windows have four or five windows arranged in a curved structure and give the appearance of a shallow protrusion. Bay windows tend to look better on modern homes, while bow windows suit Victorian-style homes more. Bay windows provide additional floor space that resembles an alcove and offer better ventilation. Bow windows, on the other hand, bring in more natural light due to their wider glass surface. The cost of installing these windows is higher than that of a regular window installation. Clera Windows + Doors offers bay and bow windows that are durable, energy-efficient, and aesthetically appealing.
