Do you have a wonderful bay window in your home but are unsure of what window treatment to pair with it to best showcase the window? Look no further. At ABC Blind and Drapery, we know it can be intimidating to pick the right window treatment for a bay window due to the odd angles and multiple windows, so we are here to help you decide! We have compiled some of the best options for window treatments for a bay window (in our opinion), and are excited to share them with you!
If you are looking for a classic choice, roman shades are always a safe option. These shades offer a clean and contemporary appearance when paired with a bay window while allowing you to fit each window separately but in a cohesive manner. The visual alignment caused by each shade next to each other compliments your bay window by giving it an appealing and elegant structure.
Light-filtering or Sheer Shades
One of the best parts about having a large bay window is all of the natural light that fills your home. To allow as much of that light in, two great window treatment options are natural woven shades and sheer shades. With natural woven shades, you receive the privacy of light filtering shades but still let a majority of the natural light through. If you aren’t worried about privacy, then sheer shades are a wonderful option for your bay window to receive the maximum amount of natural light.
While it may seem like layering multiple window treatments on a bay window would lessen the light allowed in or make the window appear smaller, it can actually create the opposite effect. For example, by pairing shutters with a contemporary valance at the top, you can make a room open and inviting, while also being able to control the amount of light coming through. In addition, layered treatments make it easier for you to fit each window separately, which can be a big concern for bay windows. And if you want to go the extra mile, a terrific way to add a comfy feeling to the room could be to coordinate some of ABC’s custom upholstery on a window seat or accent pillows to match your valance.
Luckily, there are many window treatments to choose from that will beautifully accent your bay window. We hope these examples will get your creativity flowing, and please contact us if you would like our help!
