Bay, Bow, and Garden Windows

Bay Window


New windows can transform your home in so many ways. And if you’re wanting something really special for a room in your home, bay windows, bow windows or garden windows can be the special features you’re looking for. At Garrety Glass, we provide bay window replacement, bow window replacement and garden window replacement services in York County and communities throughout Central PA. Here’s a look at the differences between the three types of windows and other information that may be helpful as you consider your options.

What Is a Bay Window?

A bay window is one of the most beautiful features a home can have. A bay window consists of three windows that angle from a wall toward the outdoors to create a three-dimensional effect. Bay windows are known to deliver tons of natural light, and they can also serve as a focal point for a living room, kitchen, master bedroom or another important space in your home. The three windows that form a bay window can be fixed or vented on the sides, while the center window is typically fixed.

What Is a Bow Window?

A close cousin to bay windows, bow windows are also a popular addition to beautiful homes. While bay windows always include three window panels, bow windows often include four or five. Bay windows are pitched outward at a higher degree angle, while bow windows angled outward at lower degrees.

Bow Window

Because there are more panels in bow windows, they allow even more natural light to enter a room. Bow windows can also be wrapped around corners of a home or other building, which creates an interesting and inviting nook area. The individual panels can be either fixed or vented in a bow window arrangement.

What Is a Garden Window?

At first glance, a garden window looks a lot like a bay window. It includes three panels, and it juts toward the outdoors, creating a three-dimensional effect that traditional windows don’t have. But the primary difference between garden and bay windows is that garden windows are set at 90-degree angles, whereas bay windows are set at 45-degree angles. A garden window provides a box-like area where you can set plants to maximize the amount of light they receive. Garden windows are most often found in kitchen areas.
