Homes with bay windows are lucky—they’ve got a built-in refuge right there in the nook, as well as architectural interest and often a great view. But bay windows can seem tricky to treat because they aren’t standard. However, Hunter Douglas, the leader in window treatment innovations, offers numerous solutions. If you want to treat your bay window, contact a specialist at Windows, Walls & More here in West Bloomfield. We’ll be happy to help you find the right look for your home.
You can treat the windows as one large unit or three separate windows. The position of your bay window will dictate how much light control you need as well as how accessible you want to keep the outside view. Here are some options:
- Drapery panels. Using the header space above the windows will allow you to hang a long, straight curtain rod for floor-to-ceiling panels. They should frame the bay, not clutter it or obstruct the view. Or put curtains on each window—hanging multiple curtains warms the space.
- Individual treatments. When dressing each window individually, be sure to mount the treatments inside the window molding. 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.
- Coordinated unit. A way to treat bay windows as one coordinated unit is to choose individual treatments that conjoin. Design Studio™ Roman Shades from Hunter Douglas could be the perfect solution. 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.
