Bay windows are a huge feature of period and contemporary style homes, allowing maximum levels of natural light in and creating a spacious effect. However, many people are unsure about how to dress the bay window without ruining its effect and, due to the variations in size and shape; there are very few ready-made options. It can be hard to select the right bay window blinds for each type of bay window to retain that privacy and light you seek, deciding what style you’re looking for your window dressings is a challenge in itself! Bay window blinds are often the best option and are the most flexible solution for homeowners looking to keep the bay windows as a feature. At Blinds Direct Online, all of our blinds are made to measure which means that you can make the most of your bay window with bespoke window coverings that fit like a glove.
There are many different types of bay window blinds and finding the right solution depends on; your room, window and your needs or wants in terms of light and privacy. Here’s our quick guide to the different types of the best blinds for bay windows you can choose from.
Bay windows might be an extremely attractive feature but if they contain three or more panes and, especially if they’re at the front of your home, they provide opportunities for nosy people to peer in. Vertical blinds for bay windows are a great option if this is the case because the slats can be tilted to stop people from looking in without sacrificing the ample amounts of light provided by bay windows in the first place. Our patterned vertical blinds could help to create a feature in your window and emphasise your existing decor and colour schemes. If you’re going for a more neutral scheme to blend in with your decor and create a subtle effect, try our Vanilla Vertical Blind.
If rather than having blinds covering the whole window, you’re looking to cover each pane of glass individually, roller blinds for bay windows are the best option. Roller blinds can be set at varying heights in order to create interest or, more importantly, to block out the glare from the sun as it moves around your home without having to sit in darkness all day!
Bay windows are designed to increase the natural flow of light into your home and provide views you don’t have from normal windows. Pick out lightweight and light coloured roller blinds such as our Grey roller blind or Smokey Blue roller blind in order to emphasise the look of your window but still allow sunlight to gently filter into the room. Bay windows also help to make your room look bigger and more spacious so bay window blinds work better in lighter colours to maintain this effect.
Bay windows contain a much larger surface area of glass than traditional windows so there is a chance that greater amounts of heat will escape. Roller blinds, in particular, will help to retain the heat in your home during the winter and reflect heat in the summer.
Perfect Fit Venetian Blinds for bay windows are another great option. They can be clipped into PVC window frames and we can turn the blinds into an integral part of the window, leaving the windowsill and window area clutter free. Each panel of the blind can be opened individually or drawn at different levels depending on the position of the light. Perfect fit blinds can be installed without affecting the overall look of your bay window or room and blend seamlessly into the decor.
