Bay & Bow Windows by CTG Windows

In the eighteenth century a new kind of window entered into the architecture of the UK – bay and bow windows. Designed to create more space by protruding beyond the outside wall of the building, these windows created better views of the outdoors, let in more natural light, and typically increased the value of your home.

Bay windows tend to be made up of 4 or more casement windows which, when joined together, form an arch, however a triangular 3 set is not unheard of either. Typically a bay window would be ‘box shaped’ or ‘squared’ and designed to hold plants or to be filled with ornaments. The other options would be what’s called a ‘splayed’ design and forms more of an arched view, which is called a bow window. Height can vary from a full room to just under head height, to floor. Full room height bay windows are less common but create a fantastic nook in your room which can be used for many things but often are filled with a window seat or used as a seated breakfast area.

The results are a wider space with greater natural light, filling the room with a warmer feeling. This can be softened or filtered with different types of window treatments as well.

With developments in windows and frames, CTG Windows are able to offer bay & bow windows in a range of different colours and finishes so you will always be able to find the right look for your home, and even match to your other windows and doors.

We love the results of bay and bow windows and seeing the different ways our customers finish off their looks, with flowers, plants, blinds, curtains, or cushioned wide sills for a reading space.
