The Difference between Bay and Bow WindowsReplacement Bay and Bow Windows
Open up your home with visually-enlarging vinyl bay and bow windows. These centerpiece windows establish a wider field of view, creating character, dimension, and depth through the focal point of your room. Replacement bow or bay windows are completely versatile in their design and can be installed in combination with other window types for added functionality. For example, a combination window type best suited for bay windows could be a low profile picture window in the centre that remains fixed and two casement windows on the sides that can be opened, giving the room proper ventilation when needed. Replacement bay or bow windows tend to make a room appear larger and more spacious as the windows protrude outward from the exterior of the home, opening up the area and creating a larger living space.
Bay windows are typically three-panel windows, which generally project out from 18 to 30″ from the interior wall surface. The end units are generally casement-style windows; the center is usually fixed. Bow windows are less angular, more curved in appearance, and are made up of 4 or 5 windows mulled together. Similar to bay windows, the end units are usually casement-style, while the two or three center windows are typically fixed.
