The paint on your old windows is starting to flake and the frames have begun to warp. You know it’s time for some window replacements. Maybe you’ve even put some thought into what you want out of your new windows—say, vinyl frames that won’t warp or need to be repainted for several years. But have you thought about your new windows as an investment in your home?
Sure, selling your home probably isn’t at the top of your priority list. You want new windows so you can enjoy the home you bought, not because your old windows are draining the monetary value from your house.
Still, making the right decisions when you choose your new windows can increase the value of your house dramatically.
If you want to noticeably increase your home’s worth with your new windows, choose bay or bow windows from Quantum Windows and Doors.
Not sure what we mean by “bay” and “bow” windows? Good thing we’re here to explain.
Bay and bow windows are windows made up of several panes that curve outward from the room, allowing more sunlight to enter and giving a much broader view. They can also be designed as the perfect reading spot if you install a window seat.
What’s The Difference Between Bay and Bow Windows?
Bay windows actually consist of three windows of different sizes, a larger middle window and two smaller “flanker” windows protruding from the wall at 30 or 40 degree angles. Bow windows can have three to six windows, all the same size. These windows are placed in a manner that makes them appear more curved, whereas bay windows clearly consist of hard angles.
How Much Do Bay or Bow Windows Increase the Value of Your Home?
Bay and bow windows make your house more appealing from the outside and provide a focal point from the inside. The moment a potential buyer steps into your home and sees the bay or bow window—especially if you’ve taken advantage of it with a beautiful window seat—they’ll fall in love and imagine themselves sitting in the small nook a bay or bow window naturally creates.
If you choose to install multiple bay or bow windows they also noticeably increase the square footage of your home. That extra square footage can make a big difference if your home is small to begin with.
