Bay Window Curtain Rods
Bay window is a generic term for all protruding window
constructions with angles, regardless of height. The most
common inside angles are 90, 135 and 150 degrees.
A bow window is a curved bay window. Bow windows are
designed to create space by projecting beyond the exterior wall
of a building and to provide a wider view They typically
combine four or more casement windows, which join together
to form an arch.
This is a sketch of a bow window from the outside. As you can
see there are no visible angles but rather a continuous curved
The curved rod is bent in a continuous manner- you don't want
angles. The rod is mounted with special brackets to the ceiling
rather than the wall to avoid the drapery trapping. As a result,
the windows will be opened and closed effortlessly.
Design: Barry Dixon Design
An arched rod, aka radius rod, creates a dramatic effect and it
looks like the window itself is curved instead of plain.
