In this installment in our 12-week Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro Replacement Window series, we’d like to introduce you to some benefits and features of the beautiful bay and bow replacement windows.
Both bay and bow windows add dimension and visual texture to your indoor spaces, and create a stunning focal point for your curb-side appearance. If you’ve ever dreamed of modernizing your home with a unique addition that complements your existing architecture, these styles may be perfect whether you live in a traditional or contemporary home.
Bay windows usually feature a large center window flanked by two narrower windows of the same height. There are dozens of configuration possibilities. For example, you may choose a large fixed center window flanked by two narrow double-hung windows on each side – that would be five windows that create a combination window unit with clean, straight lines and allow ample ventilation along with a large, unobstructed viewing area – or you may choose to add just one window on each side with similar benefits
While bay replacement windows can be a bit boxy for some people’s taste, bow windows present a more rounded or curved appearance. You are more likely to see a row of 4 or more windows of similar height and width joined together to create a graceful curve. Both configurations allow the New Jersey or New York Metro homeowner to choose all fixed windows, all operable windows or a combination that fits your individual needs. It is also possible to mull small sliders or awning windows above or below fixed panels to create a 180 degree viewing area with added airflow potential.
Design possibilities are almost endless. If you can imagine it, the factory can probably recreate your vision. Bay windows are generally constructed in 30- to 45-degree angles, but custom angles are available for those who want to accommodate unique architectural features or add a special, one-of-a-kind focal point.
Additional Benefits & Design Features of Bay & Bow Replacement Window Solutions
Along with the superior design flexibility, both bay and bow replacement windows usher in more light, brightening your indoor living spaces. Additional light makes small rooms seem bigger, and make larger rooms more functional. Replacing a more traditional window style installed near the floor with a bay configuration adds a bit more interior room, allowing better furniture placement and seating options. Many homeowners add a window seat or extra storage in the new-found floor space to declutter and organize their possessions.
For upper floors, a glass-topped bay window installed in the center of the wall provides opportunities to create a place to display decorative items or create a mini-garden center for your house plants where they can thrive in all that natural light. Remember to choose the proper glass type if you want to showcase art work or hand-painted items that may fade without added protection against UV rays that stream in with the sunshine.
