Bow Windows Pros & Cons

Bow windows offer a range of advantages and considerations that shape your window selection.



Energy Efficiency

Bow windows are one of the many types of windows that, with their multiple glass panels, can contribute to improved energy efficiency by reducing heat transfer and drafts, helping to maintain a more comfortable indoor environment.


Elegant Designs

Bow windows bring an element of elegance and sophistication to any space. Their graceful curvature and expansive glass create a captivating architectural feature that enhances the visual appeal of both the interior and exterior of your home.


Increased Space

Bow windows extend outward from the wall, providing additional space within the room. This space can be used creatively for seating, storage, or as a cozy reading nook, adding both functionality and charm to your living area.


Panoramic Views

Similar to bay windows, bow windows offer panoramic views of the outdoors. Their curvature allows for a broader view, inviting natural light and a sense of connection with the surrounding environment.



The complexity of the design, the need for customized construction, and the installation efforts make bow windows generally more expensive than standard window types. The enhanced aesthetics and benefits come at a premium cost.

Our Reputation is built on Trust and Quality


Very happy I was shown different windows styles. We went with the larger pane and smaller opening window. It's like looking through a clear opening. We have a big bushy backyard, so nice to see it so well. I actually had a couple deer come peek all I could see were these big ears in the dark. Our windows are lower. Also went with vinyl them. There easy to wash and remove when painting around them.
The installers were also fantastic, they even re-adjusted our front door from last march 2023 without my asking.
Thank you very much.


The company salesman was great rep. He provided all necessary information and facilitated us applying for the government-sponsored interest free loan.
Fourteen windows where quickly changed by competent, knowledgeable and courteous workers. They answered all of our questions and looked after any worries we might have had. The complicated metal sheet flashing of all the windows in our mansard-type roof was done very well. Everything looks great and the house already starting to feel warmer. No cold is felt on the hands when in contact with the vinyl of the windows and very little when on the triple pan glass. Thank you so much to all of the Big City Windows & Doors staff for a job well done.
