4 Top Window Treatments for Bay Windows

Bay windows are a stunning way to highlight your Boston home’s architectural uniqueness. With built-in seating and a wide view of the outdoors, they can be an attractive place to talk with family while enjoying a meal or great book.

When it’s time to update your window treatments, bay windows might seem tricky to cover on account of their size and shape. You’ll also need to think about how much daylight the windows have, and what amount of light filtering or privacy you are looking for.

By collaborating with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Boston, you’ll see just how easy it is to develop a custom solution for your home. We’ll review all your choices during your free consultation. You’ll receive expert advice under zero pressure or obligation to purchase.

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

1. Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are as multifaceted as they are resilient. These energy-saving window treatments can be hung in just about every room and window in your house. With exclusive kinds from Louver Shop of Boston, you’ll have uncomplicated performance for years.

When designing custom shutters with us, you’ll be able to select materials to best suit your house. If your bay windows are in a shady area of your house, furniture-grade basswood is a gorgeous choice. If your windows experience a lot of daylight or heat, our modern synthetic LouverWood® shutters deliver outstanding insulating effectiveness without cracking or bending.

Whichever material you pick, you’ll have the option to customize your paint or stain, louver thickness, frame style and more.

2. Sheer Shades

With an impressive collection of styles, colors and extra 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 may be making an attempt to balance privacy with allowing in sunshine. Sheer shades are a great style because the fabric provides some privacy while converting bright daylight into a welcoming glow. You’ll also get a broad view of your beautiful yard.

Silhouette® shades take it a step further, providing you the adjustability of blinds with the convenience of a shade. It features adjustable vanes nestled between two sheer panels. You’ll be able to choose the width of these vanes, as well as pick from a wide collection of fabrics.

Silhouette is available with ClearView™, which gives you the widest 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 gives you the ability to manage your shades from your smartphone.

3. Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb shades offer comparable light-filtering capabilities to sheer shades, but better energy efficiency. This makes them a great solution for bay windows, wherever they’re situated in your residence.

Honeycomb shades have chambers that hold on to air at the windows, which are your home’s top source of energy loss. This keeps indoor temperatures even and you cozier, which could help decrease your heating and cooling costs.

4. Blinds

If you love the look of plantation shutters but have a tighter budget, blinds are an excellent option. Plantation blinds have wider louvers, like plantation shutters, and can be customized in real wood or polymer options.

If your bay windows receive a lot of sunshine, our professionals suggest polymer since it stands up to sun and hot temperatures without cracking or warping. If your windows are in a shaded spot and you are seeing the most timeless style, real wood is the best choice.

With custom blinds from Louver Shop of Boston, you’ll be able to choose from a complete assortment of paints, stains and cordless operating systems. This includes PowerView™, which gives you the ability to move your blinds with your smartphone or tablet.
