Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey & New York Metro replacement windows add value and enhance the appearance and functionality of your home. While many homeowners choose to replace existing windows with a similar style to maintain the overall aesthetic, you don’t have to limit yourself to that option. Unique configurations, bold color choices and new geometric shapes allow you to redefine your curb appeal and add a bit of extra floor space or storage without investing the time or resources of a major reconstruction project.
Three window styles that give you freedom to get creative are bay and bow replacement windows. The two styles are similar, but each has a few unique characteristics. Here’s what you need to know as you consider your options.
Choose Bay Replacement Windows for Expanded Seating
Bay windows add a three dimensional feature that expands your viewing area with a few extra perks. You’ll get a panoramic view of the world on the other side of the glass and opportunities to enhance your room’s function. For example, you can add a window seat or storage under the interior ledge. Paintable/Stainable wood interiors allow you to match your existing trim work and complement your architectural elements. Water-tight roof materials ensure your new windows protect inside furnishing from moisture.
Bay windows have three panels, a center panel that is normally fixed and significantly wider than two flanking operational windows. The finished configuration gives an angular, arched presentation. You can choose to install all fixed windows, as long as you have at least one window that opens in your room, or meld together a variety of window styles and shapes that fits exactly into the opening left when your existing windows are removed. Bay windows complement almost every room in your home where you want to add architectural interest and bring in more natural sunlight.
Choose Bows for an Expanded Viewing Area
Like bay windows, bows expand your viewing area and have a “traditional” roof. The configuration typically includes 4 to 6 panels that create a gentle arch shape rather than the boxier shape of bay and garden windows. Many homeowners choose to install all fixed windows; however you can opt to include casements or double hung windows for ventilation, or use a combination of fixed and operable windows. Most of the time your personal preferences will ultimately influence your choice of bays over bows, or vice versa. Sometimes a gentle curve (or angular presentation) will fit better with your overall architectural appearance.
