Benefits of bow windows


Extra light

Larger windows allow more light to enter the room which means that you can enjoy natural light rather than artificial light in that room. Not only is this better for your mood and well-being but it's also great for your electric bill! The less you have to use your home lighting, the more you will save! You can even position your bow window in such a way that you get light from more than one angle as the sun moves. Take note of the positioning of your home and ask an expert if you are unsure about maximizing natural light.

 

More space

Bow windows don't just give the illusion of more space, they actually add some extra space to the room! From a visual aspect alone, the size of these windows helps give you that feeling of more space since you are almost joining the outdoors with the indoors. The extra space can also be used for a number of purposes and storage which can really help ease that clutter.

 

Versatile

As briefly mentioned above, your bow window is extremely versatile and can be used to display or store a number of things. For example, you can create a comfy reading corner by installing a window seat with a nearby bookcase. Under your window seat, you can store various items like blankets, cushions, and so on. So you are using your bow window to serve two purposes! Alternatively, if you are looking for a great home for your piano, your bow window will be perfect! It keeps your piano accessible while out of the way.

 

Greater curb appeal

Bow windows are not only great for the interior of your home. They can also make your home look even more attractive from the outside. Curb appeal is a great selling point for any home which is what makes bow windows such a significant investment. Even if you are not planning on selling your home anytime soon, you will still benefit later from making this upgrade. Enjoy the perks of a bow window while you live in your home and let it boost your property value when the time comes to sell.

 

Given the size and nature of bow windows, it's important to make sure that you ask your window manufacturer about professional installation. Not only does each window need to be installed properly, but they also need to line up to create the right visual effect. In addition, a professional team will most certainly get the job done far quicker than if you were to do the job yourself.

Alex and the team at north shield were amazing. Great customer service, along with a great team of installers. North shield replaced my 2 front living room windows in 1 day. They even took away my awning! Highly recommended

Jim gave us a great price, and I was also very happy with the installation team. Great workmanship, product, hey we’re friendly and clean. I am left feeling good about the company we chose to do our windows. I would certainly not hesitate in recommending them.

Andy and his crew installed the windows as agreed and were extremely pleasant. The cleanup was exceptional. They arrived on time. I would recommend North Shield to anyone looking for new windows. The service was incredible, The pricing was very good. The sales person Jim Scammel was very informative and knowledgeable. We had quotes from five (5) companies and feel good with our decision. The overall product was exceptional, but Andy was the STAR!!!! We did 17 windows and a door, so this was an important decision to our family.

We love our new windows. It was a challenging job for the guys as we are on the second floor of a condo but they were very professional and up to the task. Windows look great inside and out.

We had our windows installed last summer and absolutely love them - especially the large kitchen window. Our sales rep Jim S. was terrific and knowledgeable. The installers did a professional, skilled job of installing our windows. And the windows themselves are high quality, easy to open and easy to clean - as well as reasonably priced. We are very happy with our entire experience with this company and highly recommend them. Thank you!
