Renewal by Andersen®, the most trusted name when it comes to replacement windows in Schenectady, NY, offers two of the most elegant window styles today. Bay and bow windows are both designed with arches and angles that will certainly add more appeal to your living room. Nonetheless, what sets these windows apart from other styles are their features and benefits.

The Features and Benefits of Bay and Bow Windows

Bay and bow windows are similar in the sense that both consist of several windows. The only difference between the two is the shape and the number of windows these have. Bow windows are curved and shaped like a bow, while bay windows are angled. In addition, bow windows consist of three to six windows that are all the same size, whereas bay windows consist of just three windows of varying sizes, typically one large window flanked with two smaller ones.

Bay and bow windows are installed the same way — projecting out from the exterior walls. Because of the way these windows are installed, these offer a bit of square footage in your living room, providing you with the perfect spot to set up a cozy nook by the window. As bay and bow windows consist of several windows, this means both have wider glass areas than other window styles. These will provide you with a better view of your surroundings, along with a brighter room as these windows allow an ample amount of natural light.

Not Just for Living Rooms

Bay and bow windows will also be perfect in other rooms in your home. Just imagine your bedroom with all the features and benefits of these windows. You can enjoy the beautiful sceneries around you the moment you open your eyes in the morning. You can also set up your own personal nook in your bedroom, the perfect spot to read a good book.
