4 Top Window Treatments for Bay Windows

Bay windows are a gorgeous way to highlight your Denver residence’s architectural style. With included seating and a wide view of scenery, they can be an attractive place to meet with loved ones while enjoying a meal or great novel.

When you need to upgrade your window treatments, bay windows may seem difficult to cover due to their size and shape. You’ll also need to consider how much sunshine 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 Colorado, you’ll find out just how simple it is to develop a custom solution for your house. We’ll discuss all your options during your free consultation. You’ll get access to professional advice under no pressure or obligation to buy.

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

1. Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are as multifaceted as they are long-lasting. These energy-conserving window treatments can be hung in nearly every room and window in your residence. With exclusive styles from Louver Shop of Colorado, you’ll have uncomplicated performance for a long time.

When designing custom shutters with our pros, you’ll have a choice of materials to best suit your house. If your bay windows are in a shaded area of your house, furniture-grade basswood is a classic choice. If your windows get a lot of sun or heat, our modern synthetic LouverWood™ shutters offer outstanding insulating performance without cracking or warping.

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

2. Sheer Shades

With an impressive selection of styles, colors and optional improvements to pick from, custom shades are one of the most versatile window treatments for bay windows.

If your bay windows are located in your living room, you may be attempting to offset privacy with adding daylight. Sheer shades are a fantastic option because the fabric provides some privacy while converting harsh sunlight into a welcoming glow. You’ll also get a broad view of your stunning yard.

Silhouette® shades go the extra mile, providing you the flexibility of blinds with the easy operation of a shade. It has adjustable vanes nestled between two sheer panels. You’ll be able to choose the thickness of these vanes, as well as pick from a full collection of fabrics.

Silhouette is available with ClearView™, which gives you full advantage of your gorgeous outdoor view, and Duolite®, which includes an incorporated room-darkening roller shade. Make them faster to use by adding a smart operating system, which lets you manage your shades from your smartphone.

3. Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb shades have comparable light-filtering capabilities to sheer shades, but increased energy efficiency. This makes them a great option for bay windows, no matter where they’re situated in your home.

Honeycomb shades use pockets that catch air at the windows, which are your residence’s top source of energy loss. This keeps indoor temperatures regulated and you cozier, which could help lower your utility costs.

4. Blinds

If you love the appearance of plantation shutters but have a limited budget, blinds are a great solution. Plantation blinds come with bigger louvers, in the style of plantation shutters, and are available in real wood or polymer options.

If your bay windows get many hours of sunshine, we’d advise you to choose polymer since it stands up to sun and extreme temperatures without cracking or drooping. If your windows are in a cooler location and you are looking for the most time-honored look, genuine wood is the best choice.

With custom blinds from Louver Shop of Colorado, you’ll be able to select from a wide collection of paints, stains and cordless operating systems. This includes PowerView™, which gives you the option to manage your blinds with your smartphone or tablet.
