Imagine this: a beautiful view of the Milwaukee landscape while lounging on your favorite couch in your living room.

You can actually enjoy all of these by installing bay or bow windows in your home.

Bay & Bow: Similar Yet Different
Bay and bow windows are somehow both similar yet different from each other. Both are beautiful and provide elegant arches and angles. Both consist of several windows combined together to form the said angles and arches. In addition, both window styles jut out from the home, which means they offer extra space that’s best for creating a nook for seating or shelving. The similarities between the two, however, end there.
Bay windows are made up of three windows—typically a large one in the middle and two smaller ones on each side. They are also installed at an angle from the wall and, as mentioned earlier, protrude out of your home’s exterior walls. This offers you an extra space where you can set up a small kitchen breakfast table, a cozy sitting nook by the window in your bedroom, or a small shelf where you can place coffee table books.
Bow windows, on the other hand, are comprised of three to six windows, all in the same styles and of the same size. Bow window also protrude from the exterior wall but unlike bay windows that are sharply angled, bow windows gradually curve to form a bow shape, hence the name. You can also enjoy bow windows in your living rooms, bedrooms, and kitchens and they will provide you with an expansive view of your surroundings.
