Bay windows can add a lot to a room—light, a panoramic view, and a nice nook to curl up in. But they can be tough to treat because of their specialty shape. Luckily, Hunter Douglas, the leader in window treatment innovations, has many solutions. Speak with a trained specialist at Windows to the World serving Northeastern Pennsylvania. We’ll be happy to show you some of the options.
One Whole Unit or Three Individual Units
First decide whether you want to treat the windows as one large unit or three individual ones. The main difference will be how the treatments are mounted. For one coordinated unit, the treatments will be mounted outside the molding so they fit snugly together. For individual units, the treatments will be hung within each window frame. The position of your bay window within your home will dictate how much light control you need. It will also determine how accessible you want the outside view.
Hunter Douglas Options
A way to treat bay windows as one coordinated unit is to choose individual treatments that conjoin. Design Studio™ Roman Shades from Hunter Douglas could be the perfect solution. You can create the same effect with other shade styles, like Provenance® Woven Wood Shades or Duette® honeycomb shades from Hunter Douglas, as long as they are mounted outside the molding and meet at the edges. Plantation shutters like Heritance® hardwood shutters or NewStyle® hybrid shutters by Hunter Douglas are a great option for individual-window treatment. By keeping the treatments identical, the bay still appears consistent.
Using the header space above the windows will allow you to hang a long, straight curtain rod for floor-to-ceiling panels. When the drapery panels are open, they become a decorative picture frame for the outside view. When closed, they turn your space into a snug nook. Or, you could do curtains on each window, one on the left, one where the windows join, one where the other windows join, and one on the outside. Hanging multiple curtains warms the space. You could also add a valance to add a pop of color and texture. If you do decide to add fabric to your bay windows, don’t forget to coordinate the drapery or valance with your seat cushions and pillows!
