UPVC Bay Window Internal 1

Bow and bay windows for larger openings

Utilise your room's space and its impressive bay window with a helping hand from Somerville Glass and Windows Ltd, Reading. Learn the difference between bay and bow frames and their uncontested beauty. 


Bay VS bow windows

Though often mistaken for one another, bow and bay windows have their own unique characteristics, and once you grasp these differences, you'll have the knowledge to make the right match for your property. The bay window typically has three openings with one centre window and two, often smaller windows at either side. This simplistic, clean look is often preferred to match the modern home.


The bow window often showcases four or five openings, all the same size, that are curved to fill the entire space and appear rounded from the exterior of the building. Having multiple glass panels of the same height and width can allow for the entrance of more natural light, a bonus for properties across Reading. The curvature of the frames works well with large, challenging openings, and lends itself to classic Victorian style.
