In our last blog, we discussed the added light, space, and value a bay window brings to your home. But don’t forget about another type of window that can amplify the amount of sunlight to any room while delivering an old-world feel. Let’s talk a little more about bow windows and how they can help illuminate your home.
What are Bow Windows?
A bow window has a curved design and is usually made up of four, five, or six congruent window panels. If you want to better illuminate your home with natural lighting, extend your views, or add architectural flair, consider installing a bow window.
These structures often use casement windows, which require minimal effort for operation and create a tight seal when closed. Additionally, casement windows open fully to allow for increased ventilation.
Illuminate Your Home
Do certain areas of your home feel a little dark? Not to worry.
With multiple segments of glass panes and less framing between them, bow windows allow for a wealth of natural light in any room. The added sunlight as well as the larger opening will help make the room look larger, too.
Enjoy the Views
Once again, with less framing between the window panels, bow windows increase your unobstructed view to the outdoors. And that curved – or bowed – design gives you an amazing 180-degree perspective.
Bow windows will certainly enhance your home’s value and appeal and could even garner extra attention for style. A bow window’s rounded angles and obvious elegance bring a hint of the Victorian-era vibe, adding a unique touch to the otherwise standard, modern arrangement.
Depending on your home’s design, you can add a unique, turret-style look by installing a bow window around a corner. This will give your home a whimsical castle feel on the outside and create a cozy reading alcove or eating nook on the inside.
For a distinct and practical upgrade, illuminate your home with a bow window. These beautiful enhancements provide more light, better views, and increased value. Plus, they add exceptional style to your living space.
