If you have a bay window in your home, you know it adds beauty architecturally as well as from a view standpoint. However, you probably also know that bay windows can be difficult to treat because of their nonstandard shape. Luckily, at Window Products serving Connecticut, we offer many solutions from Hunter Douglas. Speak with a trained advisor today!

Bay Windows

With panoramic views of the outside world, bay windows give your room much natural light. Plus, they offer an additional seating area—they’re just the right place to curl up with a cup of coffee and a book. So you want to be sure that you cover your bay window in a way that doesn’t detract from the natural benefits. Luckily, the right window treatment is out there, and it will allow you to preserve your wonderful view while filtering the light coming in your bay window.

How to Treat a Bay Window

You can treat they bay either as one large unit or as three separate windows.

  • One large unit. Choose individual treatments that conjoin. One choice is Design Studio™ Roman Shades from Hunter Douglas. These Roman shades can be sized differently to fit each window, but they are mounted outside the windows’ molding so they fit snugly next to each other. This creates the effect of melding the windows together visually.
  • Individual windows. Mount the treatments inside the window molding so they don’t touch at the edges, but instead inhabit the space within the window frame. Plantation shutters like Heritance® hardwood shutters or NewStyle® hybrid shutters by Hunter Douglas are a great option when installed inside the molding to cover the bottom of each window. By keeping the treatments identical, the bay still appears consistent.
  • Adding fabric. You can use the header space above the windows to hang a long, straight curtain rod for floor-to-ceiling panels. They should frame the bay, not clutter it or obstruct the view, so choose fabrics wisely. Or, you could do curtains on each window, one on the left, one where the windows join, one where the other windows join, and one on the outside. You could also add a valance over the top of your shutters to add a pop of color and texture.
