OKNA Bow Windows – Superior Construction and Energy Efficiency
Bow windows are similar to bay windows. Both window styles project outside from the house, adding extra space and letting more light into rooms. Bow windows have a slightly curved (bowed) shape instead of the sharper angled shape of bay windows. While bay windows typically have three unequal sections, bow windows can have anywhere from three to six sections that are equal in size.
