Bay windows are a specialty shape—not all homes have them, but those that are lucky enough to boast one enjoy their beauty and light. However, bay windows can be tough to cover. At Bretz Interiors serving the Denver area, we’re proud to offer the full line of Hunter Douglas window fashions, including some great solutions for bay windows. If you’d like to see some of your options, speak with one of our consultants today.
Treating Bay Windows
Bay windows offer panoramic views of the outside world and invite a great deal of natural light into your space. They also make a room feel larger and add a fun nook to enjoy a good book or a hot cup of coffee. The right window treatment allows you to preserve your wonderful view while filtering the light coming in your bay window. To determine what will be the best choice, first need to ecide if you want to treat the windows as one large unit or three separate windows. The position of your bay window within your home will dictate how much light control you need. It will also determine how accessible you want the outside view.
You can hang a long, straight curtain rod in the space above the bay for floor-to-ceiling drapery panels. The drapes should frame the window, not clutter it or obstruct the view. When the drapery panels are open, they become a decorative picture frame for the outside view, so choose your fabric well. Or, you could do curtains on each window. Hanging multiple curtains warms the space.
Hunter Douglas Window Treatments
If you elect to treat the bay as one coordinated unit, choose individual treatments that conjoin. Hunter Douglas Silhouette® Window Shadings, Design Studio™ Roman Shades, Provenance® Woven Wood Shades, or Duette® honeycomb shades could be the perfect solution. They 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. Or, to highlight the architecture of the bay, dress each window individually, mounting the treatments inside the window molding, so they 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.
