A bay window and bow window are similar and sometimes difficult to tell apart from the outside but they do have one clear difference. A bay window adds a projection to the existing wall which can be stood in, adding a stylish look from the outside and a great place to sit and relax on the inside
The cost all depends on the size of the aperture and how many windows are required to fill the space. Of more consideration is the quality - low budget options with less reinforcement or poorly fitted can result in structural problems that cause the window to distort, crack and even leak over time.
Both bay and bow windows are designed to increase the space and light you get in your home. Bay windows are often simpler in design with just three panels, and at any or all of these panels will be able to open. Bow windows are usually smaller and thinner to create that curved effect, so although they will be able to open, it may just be a section of the window pane that opens rather than the full section.
Bay and bow windows can significantly increase your home value, as not only do they add extra light into your property, they create more space as well. This added square footage gives you the potential to use that space in different ways. The added window space means the room will get more light, regardless of which direction the window is facing, and gives you a 180 degree view from your property.
