Description of Bow Windows
A bow window, unlike many of the other windows we install in San Diego homes, is not really a window “style.” Rather, it is a configuration of multiple windows (four or more), typically joined at 10-degree angles. The resulting configuration of windows gives a bow window a rounded look, which extends out from the exterior wall of the home. A bow window can add architectural interest to a home and complement a more traditional home style. They are often confused with bay windows, which are arranged similarly, but only have three windows in the configuration.
The types of individual windows used in a bow window setup can vary. Picture windows, casement windows, single hung, or double hung windows are all great options for bow windows. If using picture windows, it should be noted that the windows will not be able to be opened or closed. For maximum ventilation, casement windows are recommended. Casement windows are also a great option if there will be a piece of furniture or a built-in directly below the windows, as it will make the window easier to open and close.
Bow windows are most often found in living areas such as family rooms and living rooms that face the street. However, a bow window can also be a great addition to a master bedroom or a more casual dining area, such as a breakfast nook. On the interior side of a bow window, you’ll often find bench seating in front of the windows—providing residents with a sunny place to sit and read a book or otherwise relax with a great view of the outdoors!

Operation of Bow Windows
The operation of a bow window depends on what styles of windows are used in the configuration. If the bow window uses only picture windows, none of the windows will be operable. If casement windows are used, the windows will open and close via a crank mechanism. If single hung or double hung windows are used, one or both of the window panels will open and close by sliding vertically.
Benefits of Bow Windows
Bow windows have many great benefits, including:
- Increasing the amount of natural light that comes into a room
- Adding depth and space to a room to make it appear and feel larger
- Giving a home a classic look—inside and out
- Providing ventilation in a room when operable windows, such as casement or single hung windows, are used
- Creating a cozy “nook” in your home
Considerations for Bow Windows
While bow windows have many great benefits, there are also some things to consider. Here are a few:
- They require a good amount of wall space.
- If the windows used are fixed, or inoperable, your bow window won’t provide any ventilation.
- They don’t complement all styles of homes—especially more modern homes.
- Adding a bow window where one doesn’t already exist can be expensive and may require bringing in a general contractor to add a supporting structure.
Bow Windows That Are Made to Order for Your San Diego Home
At BM Windows, every window we sell is made to order. This means that you can get replacement windows for your home in any size, in any style, and with any optional upgrades that you want! Maybe you only want a high-performance glazing system on windows that face the hot afternoon sun. No problem! Or perhaps you want upgraded sound suppression technology in every window to reduce the level of outside noise entering your home. We can do that too!
At your in-home consultation, we can go over all of the available options with you. But don’t worry—we won’t try to upsell you on any upgrades you don’t need or want. We’ll simply give you our honest recommendations and let you decide what options (if any) are right for your home.
Replacement Bow Windows Installed by Experts
Replacement window installation is a specialized skill that should only be done by trained professionals. That’s why, at BM Windows, we only use our own highly trained team of installers on every job. We don’t outsource the installation to subcontractors, like some other replacement window companies in San Diego do.
Proper installation ensures that your windows operate correctly and give you the energy savings you’re likely looking for in new windows. Proper installation also keeps the manufacturer’s warranty intact, since the fastest way to void your warranty is to have your windows installed incorrectly by someone who hasn’t been trained in window installation.
We want your new windows to operate perfectly for a lifetime, which is why we place a high priority on expert installation!

We sell and install only the highest quality replacement windows and doors in San Diego. We offer replacement bow windows from the following window companies:
BM Windows Guarantee
When you purchase windows from any company in San Diego, you will typically get a warranty from the manufacturer of the windows. That warranty will be good for as little as a few years, or for as long as a lifetime (or as long as you own your home), and it will cover any defects in the windows themselves.
At BM Windows, not only do all of our windows come with at least a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer, but they also come with our own lifetime installation guarantee. This guarantee protects your windows in case any issues arise due to improper installation. It’s very rare that our installers make a mistake, but if they do, our company takes full responsibility and will repair or replace any window that has an issue that is the result of an error on our part. You won’t find this type of guarantee at many other replacement window companies in San Diego. It’s one of the ways BM Windows truly stands apart from other companies in the area.
