Coverings For Bay Windows


Although there are not as popular as they have been in previous years, bay windows are still fairly common among older buildings and on some new builds. They offer a beautiful design feature for your home, adding a look of elegance whilst also giving additional space internally.

One of the problems that many people come across when they have bay windows in their home is choosing the right way to maintain a level of privacy whilst also making sure that the overall look is not ruined. You can overcome this issue by fitting the right window coverings and in this article I’m going to cover some of the options that are available to you

Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are one of the more popular choices for people that have bay windows and it is easy to see why. They are easy to use and can offer an extremely stylish look with a wide range of different colours and patterns which means that they can be designed and manufactured to meet your exact requirements and match the decor of your home.

When purchasing Roman blinds from companies such as Barlow Blinds in Leicester you will find that they will offer a complete consultation and even visit your home to make sure that everything is measured correctly so that it will fit perfectly during the installation process.

Vertical Blinds

These are particularly popular when there are a lot of straight edges in the bay window. They offer a very sophisticated appearance and will fit perfectly on Windows with right angles. Much like with Roman blinds you will find that there is a wide range of different fabrics that can be used and these blinds can therefore be tailor-made to match the decor of your home to ensure that you are left 100% satisfied.

Wooden Venetian Blinds

Many people still choose to go with wood rather than fabric and although this doesn’t prevent you from choosing from a different range of patterns it will still give your home a stunning and stylish finish.

Wooden blinds are a very traditional choice and wonder is still very popular among homeowners today. One thing that you have to be particularly careful of is the installation of these blinds, making sure that they are installed by professionals because you will want all of the different slats to line up perfectly. If they do not line up then your entire window can look like it has been fitted at an angle and this will cause a lot of frustration whenever you look at them.

Curtains

Although this is not the most popular choice when it comes to bay windows it is still an option that you should be aware of. Curtain poles can be placed on wall at the start of the bay window however this does take away the additional space that a bay window generally gives you. You can also get curved curtain poles that will fit around the inside of the bay window and maintain your additional space.

As you can see, there are a number of different ways that a bay window can be decorated and there is no reason that you should have to compromise when it comes to styles and colours. Visit your local blind showroom and have a discussion with the staff before making any purchase. The experience that these staff have will help to guide you in the right direction and make sure that you are making the most of your bay windows.
