Bay Windows vs. Bow Windows: What’s the Difference?

To the untrained eye, bay and bow windows can be strikingly similar. However, there are distinct differences between the two. Bay windows are typically constructed from three panes, each with the ability to open at angled projections. Usually, a bay window’s structure consists of a picture window and two smaller windows on either side. Bay windows are characterized by their angular design and protrusion from the home’s exterior.

By contrast, bow windows are constructed from four or more windows placed closely together to create a gentle curve. As a result, bow windows do not protrude as far from the home’s exterior, and the additional panes allow more natural light to brighten up your living space. Because of their curved structure, bow windows can be wrapped around the corner of a building for an even more striking home feature.

Pros & Cons of Bay & Bow Windows in Fort Collins

Each window type comes with its pros and cons. Take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of bay and bow windows before making your installation or replacement appointment.

Bay Window Pros & Cons

Bay windows offer Fort Collins homeowners several advantages. Here are just some of the benefits of having bay windows in Colorado homes:

  • Bay windows can create additional living space within a home.
  • The angular construction allows for operable windows that can improve ventilation.
  • They come in a wide variety of shapes, colors, styles, and materials.
  • They can be less complicated to install than bow windows.
  • Bay windows can add a lot more natural light to any space.


While there aren’t many drawbacks to bay windows, there may some cons, depending on the home or the homeowner’s preferences. For example:

  • The separate frames for each panel may restrict the views from bay windows.
  • Bay windows may not be ideal for homes that are close to streets or sidewalks because of how these windows extend out from a home’s structure.

Bow Window Pros & Cons

Like bay windows, bow windows can come with several advantages. Here’s a look at some of them:

  • Bow windows can increased natural light in living spaces.
  • They offer panoramic views of your surroundings.
  • The gentle curve of bow windows can create an elegant appearance.
  • Bow windows may not protrude out from a home’s structure as much, making them suitable for several types of homes.


Depending on a home and a homeowner’s preferences, some potential drawbacks of bow windows can be the following:

  • The curved design makes it harder to incorporate windows that can open for improved ventilation.
  • Installation may be more complicated.

Let’s Begin

We start with a phone call to collect information about your home, your replacement needs, and your goals. Every project is unique; we learn as much as we can upfront to ensure a successful remodel experience.



We visit your home to get a first-hand look at the project and to familiarize you with our process. We discuss products and innovative solutions, and provide a transparent cost vs. value analysis and detailed proposal.



Our Elite Window Experts take meticulous measurements to ensure a smooth installation. Accurate window measurements also maximize energy efficiency and protect the aesthetics of your home.



You stay informed with periodic updates via phone, email or text. Scheduling changes are sometimes unavoidable due to the manufacturer’s date changes or inclement weather. We keep you posted in real time.



Our installers come and go with minimal disruption to your routine. No need to leave your home; most installations are completed in 1-2 days. Our crew members receive special training and pass background checks.



Upon completion, the lead installation tech does a walk-through final inspection. He provides operating instructions for your new windows and doors and reviews the warranty information.


Let Us Know

We ask that you complete a survey as the final step in our process. Collecting feedback about your experience keeps us on our toes. If we didn’t meet your expectations, we want the opportunity to make it right.


Our room is much warmer (when it’s cold outside) than it was before. And the guys who did the installation were really good – professional, courteous, and they knew exactly what they were doing. Very happy overall and would highly recommend Next-Gen for new windows.
