Lowes Bay Windows
If you’re looking for a window that offers a unique design element and draws the eye of a passer-by, let us tell you about bay windows. Bay windows protrude from the home in a curved manner and actually add space to a home’s interior. Because of their high aesthetic appeal, a bay window installation will typically add value to your home. Many home-hunters enjoy the clean, elegant look that a bay window gives a home (on both the inside and the outside).
Bow vs. Bay Windows
Bow windows and bay windows are sometimes difficult to tell apart, which is why many homeowners tend to get them confused. Bay windows usually have three openings (or window panes), while bow windows usually have more than three (typically four or five). In addition, bay windows usually feature a large window in the center and a smaller, angled window on either side. Bow windows usually feature window panes that are all the same size and instead of the modern, cornered look of bay windows, bow windows tend to look more rounded. Some prefer the look of bow windows while other prefer the look of bay windows.
Bay windows are usually large in size, which means they are often used in family rooms and dining rooms because they can add a significant amount of natural light. Because the window panes are situated on an angle, they can also add good ventilation.
Bay windows protrude outward and give you extra interior space, which means you can use the space as a cozy nook complete with pillows and blankets or possibly a mini garden with plants and flowers situated on the ledge. Even though the added space may be small, it gives your guests the illusion that the entire room is larger, which adds appeal to your home.
