Bow windows are bay windows that are mounted on rounded frames. Like bay windows, bows extended outward to create additional space within a room. They are intended to provide a wider view of the outside, such as a garden or a panoramic back yard. While bays typically utilize three panels, bows usually require at least four to create the curved effect (although some bow designs use five or six panels, or “lites”).
No other windows can change the look and feel of a room like the Bay or Bow window. These windows come with a SuperSeat™ insulated seat board providing increased energy efficiency.
SoftLite bow windows, like our bay windows, garden windows, and many other styles, are completely customizable and are among the most energy efficient in the industry. A bow window from SoftLite offers many of the same outstanding options as our bay windows, including:
As the weather grows colder, foggy windows can become a problem in some homes. This simple phenomenon happens when an object is cooler than the air around it, causing a thin layer of water molecules to form on the surface. The windows in our homes are among the most common spots where this condensation occurs because windowpanes receive direct contact with the cold air outside and are usually the coldest surfaces in the interior of a house. While this may sound harmless, the condensation that forms causes water droplets to run down windows and walls, which can result in mold and mildew.
