While bay windows typically have three openings, a bow window has four or five, with a more curved look. Bow windows provide even more natural light into your home with the additional glass and can even wrap around a building for a unique look.
Additional seating or storage space is available on a bow window on the interior, as the structure protrudes from the building.
You may also prefer to have a roof for the bowed area and have many options, including shingles, metal or copper for bow windows. Bow windows typically include multiple casement windows that can be opened. Your home can maintain airflow and ventilation with the beautiful exterior appearance of a curved bow window structure.
