When it comes to bays and bow windows, sleekness and style are key factors. Whether you prefer the expanded view of a bay window, or the supple curve of a bow window, both of these styles can dramatically open up a room.
Traditionally, the bay window is made from three windows: a large picture window in the center and two smaller flanking windows on each side.
The bow window features a series of five or more windows joined to form an arc or bow shape.
Both styles come with an optional seat and head, available in different wood species.Other Styles: Bay and Bow Windows: Fiber Clad Wood® Series
