BAY AND BOW WINDOWS
Bay and bow windows from Barrington Window Replacement are an excellent choice if you are wanting to give the appearance of more square footage with a fraction of the actual cost. Many customers and their guests notice a three-dimensional effect that seems to carry the entire room into a new view. These windows are not only a decorative addition, but actually provide a functionality with aesthetic.
If you haven’t heard of bow windows before, don’t feel left out. It’s actually the same as a bay window, but built on the curve, rather than the boxed joints. The touch of rarity rather than going for the norm might be the best representation of what a home owner is thinking when going for the bow over the bay.
Among the two, the bow will cost more. Often bow windows require a more complex installation and can require constructional changes to the floor base.
Barrington Window Replacement has the professional expertise to provide the best installation of either a bow or bay window. Some installations are made right at that breakfast nook table, others in that special guestroom or certainly the master suite. For a real show case, some of our customers have enjoyed the bay or bow window installation in their living room, letting the out-of-doors draw in that special feeling of warmth and relaxation.
You may care to select the style of bay window that presents a fixed center window, but the windows on either side can be opened to the preference of the homeowner. Another style of bay has a clear and distinct angle to the side windows so that the centermost window remains in line with the basic foundational line of the interior and or exterior of the home.
On the other hand the bow windows tend to have four or five window panels with each carefully set end to end and giving the arc effect with less drastic slants from window panel to window panel.
Most often selected for the slight additional space used for a cozy reading spot or just that right additional few feet to allow a four sided floor game. In addition there is the great advantage of additional exterior light (given the angle of the windows). This choice is often a companion selection for those customers opting for French doors and windows.
The breakaway from the standard straight line window allows the bay and bow window to stand out as a noted décor that screams, “Look! I’m not mundane. I’m different and exciting.” Despite the higher cost of these windows and their unique installation, customers are most satisfied that these windows do not resemble every other house on the block and they don’t require any additional attention.
If you’re considering the dramatic upgrade without the drama of higher prices, then give us a call. Most real estate salespersons will assure you that a box or bay window will draw more buyers and regain a higher resale value than those neighbors who didn’t upgrade this way.
