As bow windows protrude out from the side of your house, they’ll make your room appear larger. They will also funnel in more natural light than a standard window, which adds to the illusion of more space. The unique curved design will greatly increase your view of the outdoors too.
The graceful lines and soft angles of bow windows can add real charm to both the exterior and interior of your property. They can also be customised to fit your needs and style, meaning you won’t ever struggle to find the right look for your home.
uPVC bow windows are virtually maintenance free and will only ever need an occasional clean to keep them at their best. The uPVC material is incredibly strong and long-lasting, making them perfect for this complex window design.
We should also mention that there are several types of glass available that are capable of meeting your energy-efficiency requirements. With the right glass, your bow window can help to reduce your energy bills and keep your home comfortable throughout the changing seasons.
Bow windows usually consist of more glass sections than a flat window to allow lots of air and natural light into your home. They also come in various designs including double-hung, awning or casement and can be made with a combination of window styles.
Each section can be capable of opening to flood fresh air into your room. The bow windows work in a similar way to flat windows becauseeach section can be opened and closed with a handle.
Alternatively, you can choose to have the glass sections fixed in their frames so they can never be opened. This option is suitable if you only want your bow window to provide your home with panoramic views and ample light.
As previously mentioned, the bow window is a variation of the bay window. They both offer similar benefits, however, they look quite different from one another. Although a bay window is angled and a bow window is curved, many people often get the two confused. Let’s take a look at the differences between both designs.
A bay window comes with central and side windows that project farther from your exterior wall. Like with bow windows, they can be built with 3, 4 or 5 sections but they will be squarer in shape. The side windows on a bay window are set at 30 or 40-degree angles so you can still enjoy good ventilation and views.
Many homeowners choose a bay window over a bow window because it can create a deeper window sill. Thisdeep sill and the additional space beneath a bay window are perfect for installing a storage or seating area inside the home.
A bow window curves gently and won’t offer you as much space inside to fit a storage bench or window seat. If you like the idea of being able to relax near the window or want extra storage space to keep your essential items tucked away, a bay window might be the best solution.
Whether you have an ultra-modern home or a period property, uPVC bow windows can be customised to add a personal touch to your humble abode. You can start by selecting from a beautiful range of understated and decorative glass panels to give your window the wow-factor. Then there are the uPVC frames, which are all available in an impressive choice of colours and woodgrain effects. Lastly, you can hand-pick your handles from a beautifully designed collection.
