What is a Bay Window?

Bay windows are windows that protrude from outside of the house leaving a bay / shelf inside the house, the purpose of the bay window is to allow light into the room. Bay windows are usually seen on medium to larger houses and can be semi-circular or rectangular. They may also include a window seat which is a practical feature that not only looks great but adds the feeling of luxury.

These types of windows are tricky to measure for & if not measured properly can become expensive when it comes to furnishing the area with curtain or blinds.

Key things to be considered with Bay Window Dressing Solutions

• Always ensure the right length curtains or blinds for a bay window is established. It may sound obvious, but measuring the area correctly is critical, which is where a professional comes in handy. When bay window curtains are drawn they should have the right amount of fold for a professional look.

• Choosing the right curtain rail fittings is incredibly important and will contribute to the overall look of how the curtains hang against the bay. Using the right hardware will help achieve the desired look. We recommend Evans Textiles for curtain tracks and poles which we can supply and professional fit along with your curtains and blinds.

• Understanding how curtains drape against the bay, should be a major consideration and goes back to the earlier paragraph of choosing the right hardware, talking to an interior designer can provide insight into achieving the right look for the right room.

• Consideration on fabric and designs for a bay window is a serious decision when dressing bay windows with curtains or blinds, over complicated patterns can make the area look like an eye sore. Go for a plain nude style, the bay can always have patterned cushions to add interest to the area and is a cost-effective solution as the colour and pattern will be timeless.

• With a small bay window area it might be a good idea to compliment the area with bay window blinds, like the window above, but if you have several windows, this could be time consuming when opening or closing the blinds. So for a large bay window, bay window curtains or layers of curtains are a practical solution.

Another solution is having bay window roman blinds & curtains together or the use of a roller blind if you have a kitchen bay window like the home below. Accent cushions in bright colours draws your attention to this window seat to make it an inviting place to sit. Who wouldn’t want to sit in this window seat and admire the view of their garden?

• Another consideration when deciding on a bay window dressing solution is the shape of your bay window. Blinds work well with small square bay windows like the example below. Blinds allow maximum light to come through the window, roman blinds add that touch of softness and luxury.
