While they’re not a standard window size or shape, bay windows are beautiful and add great architectural interest to a room. But they can be tricky to treat, and it’s important to do it just right. If you’re looking for treatments for your bay window, talk to a professional consultant at Window Treats here in New Jersey. We’ll be happy to help you find the right solution.
Decisions, Decisions…Which Window Covering is Best
Bay windows can either be treated as one large unit or as three separate windows. Your first decision is which way you want to go. Then you need to decide how much light control you need. The position of your bay window within your home will help dictate that. It will also determine how accessible you want the outside view, which is your next decision.
Treating as One Unit
To treat as one unit, your treatments need to be mounted outside the molding and meet at the edges. Design Studio™ Roman Shades from Hunter Douglas could be the perfect solution to treating your bay window as one unit. 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. You can create the same effect with other shade styles, like Provenance® Woven Wood Shades or Duette® honeycomb shades from Hunter Douglas.
Treating as Three Separate Windows
To dress each window individually, the key is to have the treatments mounted inside the window molding, so they don’t touch at the edges, but instead to inhabit the space within the window frame. Plantation shutters such as 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.
