5 Reasons to Add Bay or Bow Windows to Your Home


Few window styles match the unique benefits that bay and bow windows offer. If you are planning on getting new windows for your next remodeling project, your trusted windows replacement providers from Renewal by Andersen® of San Francisco share the reasons why you should consider bay and bow windows.

5 Reasons to Add Bay or Bow Windows to Your Home

  1. More Natural Light – Thanks to their protruding structures, bay and bow windows have more glass than other window styles. This means more natural light can get into the room and at longer times. They also provide a wider view of the outdoors that’s perfect for panoramic views.

  1. Better Room Ventilation – Proper ventilation requires two openings in a room. One vents out stale air while air pressure draws in fresh air through the other. This effect can be accomplished with two windows, but what if the room can only accommodate one? With bay and bow windows, this is not a problem – both window styles are combination windows. A typical bay window can be configured to have two or more operable windows, which allow for effective ventilation when opened.

  1. Seating and Display Space – Bay and bow windows are the only replacement windows that increase the useable space in any room. The projecting space can be used as additional seating or as a display area depending on the height. Renewal by Andersen bay and bow windows are anchored from the top, which makes them strong and durable even without lower support.

  1. Additional Floor Space – If the bay or bow projection extends to the floor, the lower half can be used in many ways. In a kitchen, it works as a banquette. In bedrooms, you can commission an inset storage space that’s flush with the walls. It can be made into hidden drawers or as an open shelf in addition to the seating space.

  1. Increased Curb Appeal – Bay and bow windows make the house exterior look bigger, which can make your home more impressive when viewed from the curb. In addition to the aesthetic improvement, it can also increase your home’s value.
