Bay window ideas – how to dress bay windows with blinds and shutters

 

There’s nothing better than a bay window for adding architectural interest and enhancing views in a home. However, the shape and size of the bay window create challenges when deciding on interior treatments. Here are some ideas for bay window treatments that will enhance your home’s best features.

1. Solar blinds bring natural light, energy efficiency, and elegance to any window.

Solar blinds are fantastic for bay windows because they allow natural light into your home while still keeping your view clear. In addition, they reduce glare, protect from harmful UV rays, and help maintain a comfortable temperature all year round. With its thermal insulation properties, solar blinds can help you save as much as 40% on your energy bills!

 2. Woven wood shades add texture to any room.

You can beautify a bay window with woven wood shades made of bamboo, reeds, and grasses. The benefits of including woven wood shades  in your home décor are that they’re environmentally friendly and can be paired with any design, from rustic to contemporary.

3.  Roman shades give a room a beautiful, luxurious appearance

Roman shades—made from a variety of fabrics, available in many designs, and offered in several textures—are a lovely way to shield your bay windows and control sunlight in your home. They coordinate well with the rest of your décor.

4. Wood blinds add a natural touch to any home.

Wood blinds are a great option for adding warmth and style to bay windows. They can come in a variety of finishes and colors, as well as different widths and slat sizes. While wood blinds are beautiful, they don’t stand up well to humidity, so they’re not a good choice for bathrooms, kitchens or laundry rooms.

 5.Sheer shades are the perfect combination of a blind and a shade.

A sheer shade is a unique combination of a blind and a shade. The soft inner vanes act like a blind you can open or close, while the exterior is made of a soft, delicate sheer fabric filtering natural light. Opaque fabrics or materials (thicker weaves and fibers) block more light, while sheer, semi-opaque fabrics let more light in.
