4 Great Window Treatments to Beautify Your Bay Windows

Bay windows are a stunning way to highlight your Gulf Coast residence’s architectural uniqueness. With built-in seating and an extensive view of outside, they can be an appealing place to gather with your household while enjoying a meal or great read.

When you need to upgrade your window treatments, bay windows may seem complicated to cover on account of their size and shape. You’ll also need to think about how much sun the windows have, and how much light filtering or privacy you are looking for.

By working with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Gulf Coast, you’ll find out just how uncomplicated it is to make a custom solution for your house. We’ll discuss all your options during your free consultation. You’ll enjoy knowledgeable advice under no pressure or obligation to purchase.

With the proper window treatments, bay windows can be a beautiful centerpiece in your house. Here are our designers’ top picks for best window treatments for bay windows.

1. Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are as versatile as they are long-lasting. These energy-efficient window treatments can be hung in just about every room and window in your residence. With exclusive models from Louver Shop of Gulf Coast, you’ll enjoy easy-care performance for many years.

When creating custom shutters with our pros, you’ll have a choice of materials to best complement your house. If your bay windows are in a cooler area of your house, furniture-grade basswood is a beautiful selection. If your windows get a lot of sun or heat, our modern synthetic LouverWood® shutters provide excellent insulating performance without cracking or warping.

Whichever material you select, you can customize your paint or stain, louver size, frame model and more.

2. Sheer Shades

With a broad collection of styles, colors and discretionary improvements to select from, custom shades are one of the most versatile window treatments for bay windows.

If your bay windows are part of your living room, you might be making an attempt to offset privacy with letting in sunshine. Sheer shades are an excellent style because the fabric offers some privacy while changing strong sunlight into a soft glow. You’ll also have a wide view of your stunning yard.

Silhouette® shades go the extra mile, offering you the control of blinds with the convenience of a shade. It features adjustable vanes nestled between two sheer panels. You’ll be able to select the thickness of these vanes, as well as choose from a complete assortment of fabrics.

Silhouette can be upgraded with ClearView™, which makes the most of your gorgeous outdoor view, and Duolite®, which includes an incorporated room-darkening roller shade. Make them simpler to use by adding a smart operating system, which allows you to manage your shades from your smartphone.

3. Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb shades offer comparable light-filtering capabilities to sheer shades, but improved energy efficiency. This makes them a good option for bay windows, regardless of where they’re situated in your home.

Honeycomb shades use pockets that keep air at the windows, which are your residence’s main source of energy loss. This keeps indoor temperatures regulated and you more comfortable, which can help decrease your utility bills.

4. Blinds

If you love the appearance of plantation shutters but have a tighter budget, blinds are a great option. Plantation blinds come with wider louvers, similar to plantation shutters, and are available in real wood or polymer models.

If your bay windows receive a lot of sun, we’d advise you to choose polymer as it withstands sun and extreme temperatures without cracking or drooping. If your windows are in a shaded location and you want the most time-honored appearance, real wood is the best choice.

With custom blinds from Louver Shop of Gulf Coast, you’ll be able to select from a complete collection of paints, stains and cordless operating systems. This includes PowerView™, which allows you to manage your blinds with your smartphone or tablet.
