Many people commonly confuse bay and bow windows. And while there are similarities between the two, there are quite a few significant differences.
Bay and Bow windows both provide a wider viewing angle than flat windows because they’re constructed to protrude from the wall, and both feature a 180-degree arc design.
Bay windows are most often comprised of three windows of varying sizes, usually a large center window flanked by two smaller windows angled from the wall at between 30 to 40 degrees — often double hung to allow for ventilation. The advantage of the center window is that although it grants to the viewer a large and unobstructed view, it also serves as a way to ventilate your room.
Bow windows are comprised of three to six windows, each equal in size, that give their design a gradually curved look, as opposed to the sharp angles common to bow windows.
