Improve Your Bay Windows with These 4 Best Window Treatments

Bay windows are a beautiful way to draw attention to your Columbus residence’s architectural features. With included seating and a wide view of outside, they can be an attractive place to sit with family while enjoying a meal or good read.

When you’re due to get new window treatments, bay windows may seem complicated to cover on account of their size and shape. You’ll also need to consider how much daylight the windows have, and what level of light filtering or privacy you desire.

By working with a window treatment specialist like Louver Shop of Columbus, you’ll learn just how uncomplicated it is to develop a custom solution for your home. We’ll review all the possibilities during your free consultation. You’ll receive knowledgeable advice under zero pressure or obligation to purchase.

With the correct window treatments, bay windows can be a gorgeous centerpiece in your house. Here are our designers’ top picks 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 practically every space and window in your residence. With exclusive models from Louver Shop of Columbus, you’ll receive uncomplicated performance for a long time.

When designing custom shutters with us, you’ll be able to select materials to best enhance your house. If your bay windows are in a cooler area of your residence, furniture-grade basswood is a classic choice. If your windows get a lot of sunshine or heat, our modern synthetic LouverWood™ shutters deliver outstanding insulating capabilities without cracking or drooping.

Whichever material you select, you’ll be able to customize your paint or stain, louver thickness, frame type and more.

2. Sheer Shades

With a wide collection of styles, colors and extra upgrades to choose from, custom shades are one of the most adaptable window treatments for bay windows.

If your bay windows are located in your living room, you could be trying to balance privacy with allowing in sunshine. Sheer shades are a great style because the fabric provides some privacy while converting bright sunshine into a welcoming glow. You’ll also have a broad view of your gorgeous yard.

Silhouette® shades take it a step further, offering you the control of blinds with the convenience of a shade. It comes with adjustable vanes nestled between two sheer panels. You’ll be able to choose the size of these vanes, as well as select from a wide variety of fabrics.

Silhouette can be customized with ClearView™, which makes the most of your gorgeous outdoor view, and Duolite®, which comes with a built-in room-darkening roller shade. Make them simpler to use by selecting a smart operating system, which allows you to move your shades from your smartphone.

3. Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb shades provide comparable light-filtering capabilities to sheer shades, but better energy efficiency. This makes them a great option for bay windows, regardless of where they’re installed in your home.

Honeycomb shades come with chambers that trap air at the windows, which are your house’s number one source of energy loss. This keeps indoor temperatures even and you more comfortable, which can help reduce your utility costs.

4. Blinds

If you love the appearance of plantation shutters but have a tighter budget, blinds are a good second choice. Plantation blinds come with thicker louvers, similar to plantation shutters, and come in 100% wood or polymer styles.

If your bay windows receive many hours of daylight, our pros suggest polymer as it can take on sun and extreme temperatures without cracking or bending. If your windows are in a shady spot and you want the most time-honored look, genuine wood is the smartest choice.

With custom blinds from Louver Shop of Columbus, you’ll be able to select from a full variety of paints, stains and cordless operating systems. This includes PowerView™, which allows you to move your blinds with your smartphone or tablet.
