The benefits of a bow/bay windows?

2nd February 2018

If you are planning to invest in new or replacement PVC-U windows for your home, bow and bay windows are a versatile, good-looking choice. As well as providing stand-out kerb appeal, extra space within the home and a touch of contemporary elegance, bow and bay windows can add real value to a property.

Panoramic views

Swish, which has been manufacturing the UK’s favourite quality windows for more than 40 years, says its customers love the panoramic views that bow and bay windows provide. They bathe otherwise dark rooms in natural light from multiple directions, creating a real sense of space and bringing the outdoors in.

Great ventilation

While bay and bow windows look stylish and clean, they also provide excellent ventilation from more than one direction. This is great for quick ventilation to get rid of nasty niffs or to provide a short blast of fresh air, as well as for long longer periods of ventilation on hot summer days. Ventilation is often an important factor when homeowners are considering new windows.

While bow and bay windows are very similar, bay windows have three parts and bow windows have at least four.

Delightful design

Bay and Bow windows are commonly found in Victorian homes, as well as modern homes. Considered a stunning design enhancement for any property, they can be installed in virtually any room but are especially popular in kitchens and living rooms.

Because of their tremendous aesthetic appeal and space-creating design, bow and bay windows are often the inspiration for interior design choices, such as reading nooks and home offices. They are also credited with reviving banquette style seating arrangements. What could they do for your home?
