How to create beautiful bay windows

Period properties have stood the test of time and offer us wonderful original features whether that be cast iron fireplaces, beautiful brickwork or those architectural treats that are big bay windows! 

Bay windows give any property an elegant look, allowing natural light to flood your property; though they can cause headaches to dress.  Take a look at our top tips for stylish window treatments that will create a stunning focal point in any room.

  • Select a made to measure product – bay windows are notorious for their difficult angles and curves. Selecting a made to measure blind, curtain or shutter will ensure a perfect fit and control light whilst avoiding unnecessary gaps offering more privacy and better energy consumption. For an extra touch of luxury, why not select elegant Romans and set the blinds in the separate segments of your bay window at different heights to create intrigue.

 

  • Retain the warmth  – Fully-lined curtains are perfect for creating that sophisticated finish and a warm and cosy environment. Bay windows often mean a little more heat escaping, practically it is worth considering thermal lined curtains if draft is a problem in your home or create a layered look with curtains over your blinds or shutters.

 

  • Create a striking look – look no further than our tailored to your home shutters which come in a variety of styles.  Shutters immediately transform a bay window adding elegance, class and style; not only increasing curb appeal but shutters are known to increase your house price value. Opt for a cafe style shutter to cover just the bottom of your window leaving the top exposed letting that craved light in or full length shutters for complete light control. 

 

Whichever option you choose it really is a personal choice, and as long as your window dressing works practically for you, you can choose to make a real statement, or let your graceful windows speak for themselves.
