Improve Your Bay Windows with These 4 Best Window Treatments

Bay windows are a stunning way to show off your Charleston residence’s architectural style. With included seating and a broad view of the outdoors, they can be an attractive place to meet with your household while enjoying a meal or good novel.

When you need to get new window treatments, bay windows could seem tricky to cover because of their size and shape. You’ll also need to take into account how much sun the windows have, and what level of light filtering or privacy you desire.

By collaborating with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Charleston, you’ll learn just how uncomplicated it is to develop a custom solution for your house. We’ll review all your choices during your free consultation. You’ll get access to knowledgeable advice under no pressure or obligation to order.

With the correct window treatments, bay windows can be a beautiful centerpiece in your home. Here are our designers’ favorites for best window treatments for bay windows.

1. Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are as adaptable as they are resilient. These energy-conserving window treatments can be hung in practically every space and window in your house. With exclusive styles from Louver Shop of Charleston, you’ll have uncomplicated performance for many years.

When creating custom shutters with our pros, you’ll have a choice of materials to best complement your house. If your bay windows are in a shady area of your residence, furniture-grade basswood is a classic choice. If your windows experience a lot of daylight or heat, our modern synthetic LouverWood™ shutters deliver excellent insulating effectiveness without cracking or bending.

Whichever material you select, you’ll be able to customize your paint or stain, louver width, frame type and more.

2. Sheer Shades

With a wide selection of styles, colors and optional upgrades to choose 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 making an attempt to counterbalance privacy with letting in natural light. Sheer shades are an excellent option as the fabric provides some privacy while transforming harsh sunshine into a soft glow. You’ll also get a extensive view of your stunning yard.

Silhouette® shades go the extra mile, giving you the flexibility of blinds with the easy operation of a shade. It has adjustable vanes nestled between two sheer panels. You’ll be able to select the thickness of these vanes, as well as select from a wide variety of fabrics.

Silhouette can be customized with ClearView™, which gives you the widest gorgeous outdoor view, and Duolite®, which includes an integrated room-darkening roller shade. Make them easier to use by selecting a smart operating system, which gives you the ability to manage your shades from your smartphone.

3. Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb shades provide comparable light-filtering capabilities to sheer shades, but improved energy efficiency. This makes them a fantastic option for bay windows, wherever they’re situated in your house.

Honeycomb shades use cavities that trap air at the windows, which are your residence’s top source of energy loss. This keeps indoor temperatures even and you cozier, which can help decrease your heating and cooling expenses.

4. Blinds

If you love the look of plantation shutters but have a smaller budget, blinds are a fantastic option. Plantation blinds come with wider louvers, similar to plantation shutters, and are available in genuine wood or polymer options.

If your bay windows get a lot of sunshine, we’d advise you to choose polymer since it stands up to sun and high temperatures without cracking or drooping. If your windows are in a shady spot and you are seeing the most timeless appearance, 100% wood is the wisest choice.

With custom blinds from Louver Shop of Charleston, you’ll be able to select from a complete 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.
