Default What is a Bow Window?

A bow window is a variation of the bay window. Both types of window installations project outward from the flat surface of a wall, providing extra space and light. The bow window is so named because it has a slightly curved shape, instead of the more angled shape of the bay window, and it looks like the curve of a drawn bow (one used with arrows, not one used to top packages).

There are many types of bow windows. Some of them use curved glass, which can be somewhat expensive to purchase and install. Others use panels of straight glass that create more of circular look than the average bay window. Typically three to six panels of glass are used, usually more panels with less width when the glass is not curved.

Like the bay window, the bow window is a lovely piece of architecture, providing extra space, access to views, or great places for houseplants that need lots of light. When there is a splendid view to be enjoyed, many people add cushioned window seats below the glass sections. This can provide greater access to views and extra seating.
