Similar to bay windows, bow windows extend beyond the exterior wall, but sweep away from the wall in a graceful arch of four, five, or six windows. This elegant window style is typically larger than the bay window style and has more glass area because of a curve in lieu of corners. As with bay windows, adding a window seat to your bow window can be a quick and easy room addition. If you’re adding a bench seat below your window, consider it an opportunity for extra storage! If you’re looking to make your room appear bigger and brighter, bow windows are the perfect solution.
