Are Bay Windows Right for Your Home?

Bay and bow windows are often included in homes to allow for more light to enter living spaces. Many beautiful Chicagoland homes feature bay or bow windows. Bay window is the (often generic) term used for a protruding window structure. There is a difference between bay and bow windows, but both are good options for a 2018 home. 

What Are Bay Windows?

A bay window typically has three sides, and these types of windows are more commonly seen in modern and contemporary homes versus traditional or classic architecture. 

What Are Bow Windows?

Bow windows are similar to bay windows, but have more than three sides. Often, a bow window has four or five sides. Unlike a bay window, a bow window’s structure is curved, allowing for a bit more light to enter the room. 

Bay Windows are Perfect Upgrades for Your Home

Installing or replacing a bay or bow window is a good upgrade for your home. Bay windows can often be the focal point of a room, allow for more light exposure, and increase a home’s value.
