Video: Why Should You Choose Bow and Bay Windows?

If you are looking to add an elegant touch in your home, consider the classic Victorian style of bow and bay windows. Popularly known as a projection type, these windows can seamlessly fit in your home without requiring extensive modifications to the existing structure. Let Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois, your trusted provider of replacement windows in Bloomington, IL, talk about why you should choose this window type.

Improved Daylight

As they have three or more panels, bow and bay windows are ideal for implementing a proper daylighting scheme. This can significantly reduce your dependence on artificial light, which can lead to more energy savings.

Our bow and bay window in Champaign, IL, come with our exclusive High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass that filters harsh UV rays. It can also minimize heat transfer to keep a pleasant temperature inside your home. This way, you won’t have to worry that the added sun exposure will only bring in more warmth and require heavy use of your cooling system.

Enhanced Views

The clear glass and classic Victorian appeal of a bow and bay window can definitely enhance your home’s interior and exterior aesthetics. Their generous sight lines and beautiful panoramic views create an inspiring visual connection to the outdoors. Additionally, their protruding design adds square footage to your home, providing extra space and function.

Featuring slim and durable Fibrex® frames, these units can offer an unobstructed view of the scenic outdoors. You can also combine them with our double hung windows in Galesburg, IL, on the sides to maximize their performance.

Bow and bay windows create a unique design element that can make your home stand out. Most importantly, they can expand your outdoor viewing, provide added space, and help with your home’s energy performance. If you would like to add them to your home, call us today at (866) 693-6707.


"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
