If the popular expression is true and eyes really are the windows to the soul, then windows could very well say to be the soul of the house. Whether you’re buying a home or hoping to alter the existing windows in the home you are in now, there are plenty of options available to you – and each of them has their own advantages, disadvantages and/or special charm that makes it the right window type for the atmosphere you’d like to create.
Bay windows vs bow windows are two of the most popular options for home windows, often seen in older houses and being added to newer ones with increasing frequency. It’s a bigger form of window that offers a lot more lighting projecting towards the inside of the house – and it catches the sun in a way that no other home windows really manage to.
Both options are great if you want to create the illusion of more space in a smaller environment, or if you want to make a space more welcoming with access to more natural outside light. It can also help to create a small section that creates either a small extension to the living room or a reading corner with great light.
It can help to cool down a warmer room, or it can create a comforting section in which you can hide from the cold during the winter months.
Know the difference between bay windows vs bow windows before choosing to have these installed.
If you are in the market for a house or rental and window choice has something to do with it, look for either bow or bay windows where you’d like to create space and more light: If you’d like to have these window options installed in a house where they aren’t present already, speak to a professional (and licensed) contractor about your needs and how practical either bow or bay windows are to install.
Which of the two is best for your needs will eventually depend on how well either compliments space: Here is where contractors can help to give you pretty good advice!
