Last week, we featured Amanda’s amazing holiday apartment, showing how she dressed her beautiful bay windows. So it got us thinking, with loads of our customers having bay and bow windows in their home, we’d like to lend a helping hand. Take a look at our ideas…
Make it made-to-measure
Bay windows are made for made-to-measure. They’re a beautiful feature, and there’s nothing worse than ruining them with a poorly fitting window dressing. Luckily, all our blinds are just that. They’ll enhance your window as they follow the lines of the bay rather than covering it up.
Amanda knew what she was doing when she dressed her stunning Victorian windows with Wooden blinds. The beautiful lines add to the architecture of the space but will add a special something to more contemporary spaces too.
Get cosy with a Roman
Square bay windows are seriously cosy, with lots of people liking to snuggle up in a chair in the alcove. That’s why we shouldn’t section off the area with curtains – think of all the space you’ll lose! Jane went for a set of stylish grey Roman blinds for hers, which really add to country cottage feel.
Soft fabrics offer the same luxurious feel as curtains but are more minimalist. They also have the advantage of following the shape of the bay, giving you loads more space.
Chances are you’ll love your bay because it lets loads of light into your space. So to make the most of it, choose a metallic shade Venetian blind and let the rays bounce around beautifully. Copper is bang on-trend, while gold will give a touch of glittering glamour.
Bay windows are so attractive, but they offer more opportunities for nosey people to look in. If privacy is an issue, Vertical blinds might be an option, and with loads of different shades available, they coordinate beautifully with pretty much any décor scheme. Pink, plum, Prussian blue – the choice is yours.
