The bay window is a popular and simple design made up of 3 windows. They have openings on the left and right side which are traditionally casement or double-hung windows. The centre window is a large double/triple glazed pane called the picture window.

2. UPVC Bow Windows
The bow window is a larger protruding design that features multiple windows set at specific angles to create a rounded appearance with less protrusion when compared to the bay window. Each window can be a fixed double/triple glazed pane, or an opening such as casement or double-hung windows.

The box bay window is the same as a bay window except the windows on the left and right are set at 90 degree angles from the wall. This gives the window a box, or square, design.
This design features clean lines and aesthetic symmetry that adds boldness and character to your home. Internally the square bay area significantly increases the available space in a room and is perfect for placing windows seats, computer desks, televisions and other furniture.

A bow window is similar to a bay window but bow designs use more than 3 windows
Bay windows protrude further from the home than bow windows and provide more internal space within the bay
Bow designs use more windows. The result is a circular rounded appearance, whereas the bay design is square/box shaped and provides more internal space
