Each Bow window is formed by joining together 4, 5 or more equal-sized windows, either in standard 10° or 15° angles to form the graceful curve. They add elegance and beauty to any room in a home as well as providing magnificent views.

Bow windows are welcomed by homeowners and frequently called for by architects because of their grand, sweeping curves which can turn a standard window opening into an appealing architectural enhancement. Bow windows are projection windows that have the benefit of adding space to a home. They do not project outward as far as Bay windows and have more glass panels and softer, more rounded angles. Interior designers love Bow windows because their outward extension creates a picturesque setting in the home that allows for magnificent exterior views. For fresh air circulation and temperature comfort, any or all sections of our Bow windows can be made operable - they have all the strength and durable features that are built into every Big City window.

Every Bow window is somewhat unique and therefore must be custom built to the specifications of the space where it is to be installed.


Bow Windows? What They Will Add To Your Home!

Many people wonder if there is any real difference between bow windows and bay windows. In fact, there are several. While you may not think bay windows are right for your home, it pays to consider the benefits that the bow window design has to offer. Here are some of the benefits that will come your way.

The Illusion of More Space

One of the benefits of going with a bow window design is that you get the appearance of a little more space inside each room. At the same time, there is only a little bit of protrusion along the outside wall. When there is not a lot of space to use outside the window but you still want to make the room seem more expansive, this approach will do the trick.

A Stylish Addition

A bow window in a room provides you with one more architectural element that makes it easier to create the look you want. This design lends itself easily to a number of different window treatment options. You can make the treatment as simple or as ornate as you like and still ensure the window itself adds something extra to the space.

Enhancing the Flow of Natural Light

You may think that a plate glass window would let in the most amount of light but that's not necessarily the case. Because of the slight curve found with most designs for bow windows in Ottawa, it's actually easier to enjoy the maximum amount of natural light any time of the day. The series of smaller panes that compose the window increase refraction and actually provide greater natural illumination.
