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.

Northshield replaced 9 windows in our house. Our only complaint would be that the colour doesn't really match the sample we were shown. The woman we first encountered in the showroom was pleasant and helpful. There are only so many things she could tell us in the showroom but it was enough to convince us to book an appointment with a salesman. Walter, the fellow who came to our house, wasn't really a salesman at all and yet he knew exactly what he was doing. Answered all of our questions, clearly knew his business inside and out, was patient with us, made some really helpful suggestions, and just generally made us feel confident and comfortable. Next came Vladimir. He came to do the final measurements and to verify the details of each window. Another very very knowledgeable guy. Clearly an expert in his field and yet friendly and patient with us. The team of men who came to do the install were all very much polite and professional. Their workmanship is first rate. In the end, what I know is this, the new windows are in, the drafts and rattles from the old ones are gone, the price was fine, the quality is A1, and every single individual along our journey was a genuine pleasure to work with.

We chose Northshield because of the rave reviews on Google, but unfortunately the experience was a disappointment. The sales guy was nice enough, but like most suppliers in their industry, installation came 6 weeks past their original estimate, which was fine since we were not in a big rush, although we had to delay the painting of our kitchen because of it. The two big issues were: 1. To install our new patio doors, the opening had to be widened, which our sales guy mentioned, and which was fine to us. The problem came when the installers were on site and insisted that they did not need to replace the header. I know nothing about construction but luckily my colleagues told me to make sure that they install a new header because they were widening the doorway. Luckily I was home and I persisted that they install a new header, and after a while they finally realized that they needed to do it as well. They went off to the store to get the wood and the drywall and finished the job, which looked fine. 2. Only a few months later big cracks appeared along the new header. I called Northshield only to be told by Alex that my painter should've known that the patchwork on the header was very minimal and that "any professional painter should've known to make sure the drywall was ready to be painted." So they refused to do anything about it. I guess I should've said back to him "any professional installer should've known you need a new header when you widen a doorway!" So now I have a wall that I will need to re-patch and re-paint all over again. If you decide to use Northshield, please do your own research and make sure that you oversee their work, because they will never take responsibility for it, or admit that they didn't know what the heck they were doing.

Professional, clean, good customer service. Fast and efficient. No surprises or hidden costs, did not try to upsell me and worked within my budget. Very happy with the finished product and will continue to use in the future for replacing my remaining windows.

We had 4 windows installed by this company. The windows were installed in no time at all, and the guys were very professional and efficient. Love the windows and would recommend this company to anyone.
