A bay window consists of one main window flanked by two smaller windows. Bay windows are designed to create space by extending beyond the exterior wall of your room. They can become the focal point for a room, especially if they look out on an attractive view. Bay windows also offer an opportunity to create a special space in a room.
A bow window is a curved bay window but doesn’t usually extend as far out of the room as a bay window. Bow windows can have multiple configurations of panels, usually ranging from 3 to 5 with various opening styles.
“Just a quick note to express my thanks for the recent excellent job you and your team have done on replacing my windows. The two gentlemen who fitted the windows were obviously experts in their field and were extremely pleasant. It was a pleasure to have the job done so expertly and with so little disruption to my time and my home.” Catherine, Carrigaline
