Increasing The Space in Your Home with Windows


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.

Floor Space

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.

Home Value

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.

All of our bay and bow windows can be customized with any of our over 35 choices of vinyl colours, and are backed with a lifetime warranty!

At NorthShield Windows and Doors you can choose from a wide variety of window styles that best suit your tastes, and work toward creating a unique looking interior and exterior for your home. We pride ourselves on providing the utmost care to our clients, with free estimates and fast service.

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!
