Enhance Your Bay Windows with These 4 Best Window Treatments

Bay windows are a beautiful way to draw attention to your Columbia home’s architectural features. With built-in seating and a wide view of scenery, they can be an attractive place to meet with loved ones while enjoying a meal or good book.

When you’re due to get new window treatments, bay windows could seem difficult to cover due to their size and shape. You’ll also need to consider how much daylight the windows receive, and what level of light filtering or privacy you desire.

By working with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Columbia, you’ll learn just how uncomplicated it is to create a custom solution for your house. We’ll go over all your options during your free consultation. You’ll get access to professional advice without any pressure or obligation to order.

With the proper window treatments, bay windows can be a gorgeous centerpiece in your residence. Here are our designers’ top choices 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 installed in just about every area and window in your house. With exclusive models from Louver Shop of Columbia, you’ll receive trouble-free performance for years.

When making custom shutters with our pros, you’ll have a choice of materials to best suit your home. If your bay windows are in a cooler part of your residence, furniture-grade basswood is a timeless option. If your windows get a lot of daylight or heat, our modern synthetic LouverWood® shutters provide excellent insulating capabilities without cracking or drooping.

Whichever material you pick, you’ll have the option to customize your paint or stain, louver thickness, frame model and more.

2. Sheer Shades

With a broad collection of styles, colors and optional enhancements to pick from, custom shades are one of the most flexible window treatments for bay windows.

If your bay windows are in your living room, you might be trying to balance privacy with letting in natural light. Sheer shades are a fantastic solution because the fabric provides some privacy while changing strong daylight into a welcoming glow. You’ll also get a extensive view of your stunning yard.

Silhouette® shades take it a step further, giving you the adjustability of blinds with the easy operation of a shade. It comes with adjustable vanes that float between two sheer panels. You’ll be able to customize the size of these vanes, as well as pick from a complete variety of fabrics.

Silhouette can be customized with ClearView™, which makes the most of your gorgeous outdoor view, and Duolite®, which includes an integrated room-darkening roller shade. Make them simpler to raise by installing a smart operating system, which allows you to control your shades from your smartphone.

3. Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb shades have equivalent light-filtering capabilities to sheer shades, but improved energy efficiency. This makes them a good choice for bay windows, no matter where they’re located in your residence.

Honeycomb shades use chambers that hold on to air at the windows, which are your home’s number one source of energy loss. This keeps indoor temperatures even and you cozier, which might help reduce your energy expenses.

4. Blinds

If you love the appearance of plantation shutters but have a limited budget, blinds are a great second choice. Plantation blinds have bigger louvers, similar to plantation shutters, and are available in real wood or polymer models.

If your bay windows receive a lot of daylight, our specialists suggest polymer because it withstands sun and hot temperatures without cracking or warping. If your windows are in a shaded area and you want the most timeless style, real wood is the smartest choice.

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