What is the Difference Between Bay and Bow Windows?

Bay Window

Bay and bow windows project out from the side of a home, welcoming copious amounts of natural light and creating additional living space which is often used as a sitting or display area. While these two window styles are often lumped together in conversation, there are differences that you should understand if you are trying to choose the right replacement windows for your home.

Here are the major differences between these two popular window styles:

  • Makeup – One of the most notable differences is that a bay window is always made from three panels, while a bow window can include four or five.
  • Shape – Because of the additional window panes, bow windows appear to be curved while a bay window can have more pronounced corners.
  • Venting options – Most bay windows include a fixed panel in the center and two side panels that can be fixed or allow for venting. All panels in a bow window can usually allow for venting if preferred.
  • Floor space – Bay windows typically extend out further from the wall, creating more space inside the home.
  • Width – Because bow windows have additional panels, they can be wider than bay windows and can even wrap around the corner of a building, allowing more natural light into the home.
  • Style – Many homeowners prefer the more modern, angular lines of bay windows, while bow windows are considered ideal for Victorian-style home.

The NEWPRO process was fantastic.

They showed us a full 3D rendering of the final result before anything ever got started.

Window Replacement Project

Quality of the windows was superior to the others we looked at. Now, our windows tilt in, so it's going to be much easier to clean them.

Pembroke, MA

Pool House Doors Project

Cold stays out in the winter. Cold stays in during the summer.

The best thing I love is the craftsmanship from NEWPRO. You'd never know we had the old door cut out because it was rotted from the New England weather.

Scott Zolak

Windows Replacement Project

The sales guy was very thorough and answered all of my questions. The guys that installed the windows were fantastic.

My heating bills have dropped significantly — by about 30% than what they were before.
