Elegant Window Solutions: Bay or Bow

Which Window is Right for Your Little Rock Home

We have many window styles available at Royal Windows & More but none are of more distinguished style and beauty than the bay and bow windows. These styles impress upon a more classical standard with regards to aspects of design. They each feature a protruding shape that extends beyond the side of the home. This characteristic look is reminiscent of Victorian or Colonial styled homes. Though each window can work on homes of any style, smaller homes are typically found to do better with bay windows due to their proportionate size. Each of these windows has a unique makeup that distinctly separates theme from one another with regards to composition and size.

Bay Window Composition

Bay windows are made up of three different windows with the center typically being larger in size. Many homeowners prefer to use a picture window and the center pane because it offers larger more unobstructed views. For the flanking windows, casements or double-hungs are most often used. Once the compositional windows are decided, they are adjacently attached to one another with the flanking windows angularly attaching to the wall. The angular installation gives bay windows their distinctive protruding shape. Once installed, Little Rock homeowners can enjoy large unobstructed views from the picture window and a great deal of ventilation from to the operable flanking windows.

Bow Window Composition

Bow windows are somewhat similar to bays but instead of using only three windows, they are comprised of four to six windows that are of equal proportion. They also create a more symmetrical and arched design rather than the angular shape distinctive of bay windows. Additionally, the sharper angles at which these windows are hung and increased amount of windows help them create more ventilation than the smaller bay window. Unfortunately, the use of equal sized windows diminishes their ability to provide unobstructed views.

The Perks of Being a Bay or Bow

Each of these windows are designed to provide homeowners with gorgeous views and great natural airflow. Despite their compositional differences, they each provide Little Rock homes with increased interior space and exceptional beauty. This extra space, which is created due to the window extending beyond the exterior of your home’s side, is great for shelving or window side seating. Additionally, each of these windows are designed to be highly energy efficient so you can also enjoy greater energy-savings. Let the experts at Royal Windows & More help you decide which replacement windows work best on your home.
