Window Style Series: About Bay and Bow Windows

October 09, 2015

Imagine this: a beautiful view of the Milwaukee landscape while lounging on your favorite couch in your living room. How about waking up to a spectacular view of your surroundings or having breakfast with the family while enjoying the warmth of the sun in your face? You can actually enjoy all of these by installing bay or bow windows in your home.


Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee offers a wide range of quality window styles, including bay and bow, as well as other window styles such as the double hung window Waukesha and the surrounding areas.

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

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

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.

Hear From Our Customers

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.
