Blinds For Bow And Bay Windows
If you’re the proud owner of bow or bay windows, make sure to complement them with perfectly-fitted blinds that grant you full control over light and privacy. In this article, Humberside Sunblinds are going to talk you through the best blinds for bow and bay windows.
Bay windows consist of three panes of glass at different angles – one that is flat, and a pane either side that is angled to frame the central pane.
A tried and trusted blind type for all kinds of windows, Roman blinds can add an extra level of quality to your bay and bow windows. When raised, the full effect of your statement window is felt, but when the blinds are lowered, you still benefit from the sleek, minimal, elegant look of the Roman blinds. With the wide range of Roman blind patterns and colours available, you’ll be sure to find a blind to suit your requirements.
Pleated blinds offer superb insulation and a beautiful look suitable for bay windows of any size. The subtle pleats add a little extra character to the blinds, and their construction means they will perfectly frame the window when drawn up. They’re also ideal for awkwardly-shaped windows and recesses.
The light, floaty appearance of roller blinds looks terrific when the sun is shining. When they’re rolled up, they’re discreet and hidden, and when they’re down, you can still make out the glow of the sun without letting in any unnecessary light.
Bow windows take on a similar shape to bay windows, but they consist of more individual panes of glass than a bay window. Here are the best blinds to use for your bow windows.
Roman blinds will draw attention to the elegance of a bow window without dominating the feature, and with their exceptional light and privacy control, you can easily manage how much light gets in.
Not only do vertical blinds look great, they can also provide something of an optical illusion in that they make your windows look taller than they actually are. They can be fitted individually above each pane of the bow window, or they can make use of a curved rail which spans the whole recess.
When choosing your window dressing for your bow or bay windows, it’s important that you highlight this brilliant feature of your home, rather than hide it. Curtains draped in front of the recess will simply hide your beautiful window – opt for the blinds we’ve suggested above to draw attention to your window space whilst enjoying the light and privacy control benefits of the blinds themselves.
