Windows have a way of taking a simple room and opening it up to beautiful aesthetic possibilities. They allow for the passage of light to illuminate a room, and for in-home observation of breath-taking views. They can add elegance and esteem to the exterior, transforming a plain looking house into a luxurious looking home.
If you are looking to open up your space, but don’t want to break the bank by reconstructing to increase square footage, NorthShield has the solution for you. Bay and bow windows are specially designed to make any room feel more spacious, without actually increasing the floor space. Both bay and bow designs protrude outwards, breaking the commonly flat, two-dimensional look regular windows portray. This adds flair, and gives your house a more interesting style, with a better view.
What are Bay and Bow Windows
NorthShield’s bay and bow windows are manufactured at home here in Canada. They come equipped with easily removable screens, for convenient maintenance. Both window designs protrude outward, offering a panoramic view with a number of panels arranged at different angles about the surface of the house. Bay and bow windows give off a similar look, but have a few traits that set the two apart. Bay windows have three panels, and protrude further outwards than bow windows. Bow windows have upwards of four panels, and have a smoother, more circular curve than bay windows.
From the interior of a home, bay and bow windows will maximize floor space, creating the illusion of a larger room. Bay windows tend to be deeper, while bow windows tend to be longer. Both designs, however, create a sense of spaciousness in any bedroom, kitchen, or living room in which they are installed.
As both window designs protrude outwards, the space that opens up is where the flat window was previously fixed. With that space now empty, the room appears larger and freer. Guests will feel more relaxed, as your home will offer a more open, less restricted environment.
Upgrading from basic, flat windows to bay or bow windows will give you room to breath in your own home. The feeling associated with having more space in the place you live will allow for you to be more at ease, and will in turn have a positive reflection on your daily attitudes.
From a financial aspect, installing bay and bow windows give the best results for the lowest cost. Changing your windows to increase spaciousness is more affordable than renovating your whole house to physically increase square footage. In less time and for less money, our expect craftsmen can transform your house into a desirable home, increasing the value of it greatly.
