Bow Windows

Bow windows are designed to create a smooth curved appearance, using four to five identical windows. These are usually fitted at a 10-degree angle to create the curved effect they are known for. Bow windows are perfect for bringing a great amount of light into a room, which is why they are a common choice for living rooms. Not only does this make the room appear larger in size but it also allows more daylight to enter the home. Increased daylight in your home can help with several other benefits including a better mood and increased productivity.

Bow Window Installation

The frames used in the construction of the bow window are fully reinforced and connected using corner posts. The external sill is welded together to create a continuous sill that runs underneath all the window frames. It is possible to replace an existing flat window with a new bow window or even expand the aperture to create an opening for a wide bow window. If you decide to go down this route, please be aware that a new roof above the bow window section is required.
