Bay Windows

Bay or bow windows are a combination of fixed and operable windows that form a curved shape extending beyond the exterior walls of a building. Bay windows typically consist of three windows, with two operable ones angled outward and one fixed window in the center, featuring sharper angles compared to bow windows.

On the other hand, bow windows comprise four or more windows joined to create a smooth curve, with each window usually being of the same size and shape.

These types of windows protrude from the exterior of a home, maximizing interior space while providing increased natural light and ventilation. They offer panoramic views and a sense of depth to the room.

Bow windows, being wider than bay windows, are best suited for exterior walls or corners with ample space of 80 inches or more.

Bay windows, with their angular lines, are commonly found in transitional and contemporary homes, whereas bow windows are favored in traditional and Victorian-style residences.

Bay windows are also referred to as box bay windows or oriel windows, while bow windows may also be known as compass windows or curved windows.
