Window Dressing Ideas For Bay Windows

Bay windows can be a great addition to your home. They will be able to let in a lot of light, so you’ll be able to admire the outside view. Because of this, they can become the focal point of the room. One of the best ways to accentuate their beauty is by picking the perfect window dressing. There will be plenty of options for you to choose from. Let’s look at some of them. 

Window Shutters

Shutters are a great solution for your bay windows. You might want to have one shutter that covers the entire window. If you want to take the concept to the next level, you can have tier on tier shutters. One part will cover the upper window and the other covers the lower section. You’ll then be able to leave the top half open while closing the bottom. This will let you enjoy the natural light while maintaining your privacy.


One of the most popular options will be blinds. These can be used very creatively, allowing you to show off your bay windows. There a many options available with blinds including plisse, duettes, venetians, romans and many more.. Blinds can be great if you have multiple bay windows. In this case, you’ll need to get them made to measure in each window segment. Then, you can set each blind at different heights, this will create plenty of visual interest.

Another suggestion is to have curtains on your windows. There are plenty of curtain options for you to explore.  You might want to pair the curtain with a Roman blind. This will give you a lot of privacy, it can also be a great way to block out a lot of light, which can be ideal for a bedroom.  The type of curtain that you’re using will determine how much light enters the space. A thicker curtain will block the light. But a lighter curtain will protect your privacy while letting light into the room.
