Are you wondering which are the best blinds for bow or bay windows? Then read on. We’ve created a detailed guide to help you choose the perfect blinds for these traditional yet highly stylish windows. 

The best blinds for bay and bow windows

Which are the best blinds for bow and bay windows

A bay window has three panes of glass, each at different angles. The central pane is flat whilst those on either side are angled. The windows at the sides are usually smaller too. Bay windows let in lots of natural light, making them perfect for living rooms. Bow windows are slightly different in that they have an arc-shaped structure that consists of at least four windows that are normally casement windows. Like bay windows, they offer great lighting, fantastic views, and can seriously enhance the look of your property. Keep reading to discover which are the best blinds for bow and bay windows.

Roller blinds

Roller blinds are one of the most popular blind styles for bow and bay windows. They work well on angled and multi-faceted bay windows and can be fitted to each individual pane of glass. This enables fantastic light and privacy control. Roller blinds come in many colours and designs too, making it easy to match them with your existing décor. Roller blinds also have good insulating capabilities, as long as they are fitted to a high standard. Often, big bay windows can be a significant source of heat loss in homes. Adding thermal roller blinds can help to keep your property warm whilst reducing your energy bills.

Roman blinds 

Roman blinds have long been a popular choice for bay and bow windows. They offer a real sense of luxury, appearing incredibly opulent when raised. The fabric drapes delicately over itself, giving a really elegant and sophisticated look. This makes them ideal for more formal areas such as living and dining rooms. Roman blinds can soften the look of these windows brilliantly. Like roller blinds, they can be mounted individually to the different window panes. Roman blinds come in various colours and designs to suit both traditional and contemporary décor and tastes. Some people choose to pair Roman blinds with curtains to prevent heat loss and enhance privacy.

Vertical blinds

Vertical blinds can be a good option for bow and bay windows. This is because they have slats that can be easily adjusted to achieve your desired privacy level. Bay windows are very attractive but because they contain three or more panes, they provide many opportunities for people to peer in. Vertical blinds can help to prevent this whilst still allowing plenty of natural daylight to enter. Vertical blinds for bay windows can be as subtle or as eye-catching as you choose, with many different colours and designs available.

Pleated blinds 

Perhaps one of the most classic blind styles, pleated blinds can be a good choice for bay windows. As well as being aesthetically pleasing and easy to operate, they also offer a high level of insulation, helping to keep your living space warm all year round. This is because, with pleated blinds, the warm air gets trapped within the slats, stopping it from touching the window and cooling down. Pleated blinds can easily be drawn up to the top of the window too, making it easy to flood your living space with natural daylight. 

Perfect Fit blinds

One of the newer styles to hit the market, Perfect Fit blinds have quickly become a popular choice for bay and bow windows. They allow roller, Venetian, and pleated blinds to be fitted ‘perfectly’ onto a frame that surrounds the blinds. This clips onto the window frame itself, leaving your sills clutter-free. One of the biggest advantages of Perfect Fit is that they can be clipped onto the frames, minimising any damage to your property. Needless to say, they are also ideal for controlling the light that enters your home, allowing you to create the perfect environment at any given time. Perfect Fit blinds become a part of the window itself, creating a very clean, neat finish that enhances your living space.
