Bow & bay windows are very similar but have a few key differences.
Bow windows, along with bay windows, actually physically extend past the boundaries of your home and add on extra space. With a combination of four or more windows, they provide far more design options along with more daylight and airflow, into spaces that may have been lacking these things in the past. You may have also heard these called “compass windows” in the past.
Brighten Any Room
Bow windows protrude from the exterior of a home in a rounded bow-out shape, hence the name. They are typically constructed using a series of casement windows, exactly the same size, put together into a curved structure. Bow windows give you that curved sleek look, and create perfect little nooks that can be used for reading, sleeping, working, whatever you want!
Now you can’t really just go installing a bow window in any given interior room of your home. They work the absolute best on exterior walls or corners, where you have more than 80 or so inches of room to spare. Physically extending the room outside some gives the visual appearance of a far larger room. And you can use all of this extra space for a nice reading nook or a comfy window watching seat.

Natural Light with Incredible Views
These expansive windows offer some of the best views that a window is going to be able to offer you. The shape allows you to really lose yourself in the fully encompassing view.

Energy Savings & Noise Reduction
All of the windows that make up a bow window are incredibly strong and energy-efficient on their own. With a very well insulated window, as long as it is installed well, you’re going to see some incredible noise reduction as well. For many that could mean far less annoyance when the roads get busy out or the neighborhood is active. You don’t realize just how much noise makes its way into your home until it is not!
