Adding a Bow Window: 3 Fresh Design Ideas to ConsiderOctober 03, 2016
Much like the bay window style, the bow is one of the most popular window styles with its trademark projection, ventilation prowess, and view-enhancing design. With the right implementation, you can get way more than its inherent benefits.
As the leader in replacement window installation, Renewal by Andersen® of Eastern NY has a few great ideas to use the bow’s distinctive design to improve your spaces. Draw inspiration from these smart concepts:
Have a Dining Backdrop
Covering the background of your dining area with bow windows can provide you with sunny breakfasts and airy lunches. A group of five casement windows would usher in plenty of natural light to add drama to your space.
This is ideal if you have limited square footage in your dining area. The continuous panels of glass create an illusion of space to make it look and feel roomier than it is. If your home is surrounded by scenic outdoors, installing a bow window invites Mother Nature to every meal.
Implement a Bow Wall
Instead of using fixed-pane picture windows, the bow can be a great window wall to create a seamless connection with the outside world. This idea is usually used in family rooms, but upper-floor spaces actually offer better panoramas.
The addition of grilles will just depend on your home’s architecture. If the window wall faces the façade, you might want a historically accurate grille pattern to accentuate your home’s character. If it’s on any other side of the house, breaking away from tradition can work.
Place an Arched Window Above
Putting large arched window on top of the bow makes both your exterior and interior design geometrically diverse. Similar to a few custom windows, the stunning curve of an arch allows beams of sunshine to stream in with artistic fashion. Especially if you treat the panels of your bow for privacy, the arched glass would continue to provide plenty of natural daylight.
