Should You Install Bow Windows?

Your windows make up a significant portion of both the exterior and interior of your home—and have a major impact on the overall aesthetic. What shape are your windows in? If they don’t look good, it may be time for replacement.

Do you want to install windows with unique character? Looking for a way to enhance the design of your home? Consider bow windows!

What Are Bow Windows?

While nearly everyone knows what bay windows look like, many are unfamiliar with bow windows. They are somewhat similar to bay windows, with many of the same benefits. Bow windows typically include four or more window units in a radial or bow formation and are often rounder in shape than bay windows, which are more squared.

What Are the Advantages of Bow Windows?

Like bay windows, bow windows offer a number of benefits. They:

  • Add architectural character to any home’s exterior – bow windows are often used solely for aesthetics! They have a unique design and stand out more so than other types of windows—even bay windows.
  • Can help raise the market value of your home – bow windows can help boost the curb appeal and resale value of your home.
  • Help brighten your home – if a room in your home is dim, installing a bow window is a great way to let in natural light and brighten the space.
  • Offer wide views – you can use bow windows to draw attention to your home’s landscaping; they are bigger than other windows and offer beautiful, expansive views.

Regardless of the style of your home and no matter the reasons for installing bow windows, you’ll be able to enjoy their many benefits!
