Bay windows are a gorgeous way to highlight your Birmingham house’s architectural style. With built-in seating and a wide view of the outdoors, they can be an attractive place to talk with your household while enjoying a meal or good novel.
When you’re due to replace your window treatments, bay windows might seem complicated to cover due to their size and shape. You’ll also need to think about how much daylight the windows receive, and what level of light filtering or privacy you want.
By working with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Birmingham, you’ll see just how easy it is to develop a custom solution for your residence. We’ll review all the possibilities during your free consultation. You’ll have expert advice without any pressure or obligation to purchase.
With the correct window treatments, bay windows can be a stunning centerpiece in your home. Here are our designers’ top picks for best window treatments for bay windows.
1. Plantation Shutters
Plantation shutters are as multifaceted as they are resilient. These energy-saving window treatments can be installed in practically every space and window in your house. With exclusive types from Louver Shop of Birmingham, you’ll receive uncomplicated performance for a long time.
When designing custom shutters with our pros, you’ll have a choice of materials to best complement your house. If your bay windows are in a shaded part of your home, furniture-grade basswood is a timeless option. If your windows experience a lot of daylight or heat, our modern synthetic LouverWood® shutters offer great insulating capabilities without cracking or bending.
Whichever material you pick, you can customize your paint or stain, louver width, frame type and more.
2. Sheer Shades
With a wide selection of styles, colors and discretionary upgrades to pick from, custom shades are one of the most flexible window treatments for bay windows.
If your bay windows are part of your living room, you could be making an attempt to counterbalance privacy with letting in natural light. Sheer shades are a great style because the fabric provides some privacy while transforming harsh sunshine into a soft glow. You’ll also get a wide view of your beautiful yard.
Silhouette® shades take it a step further, giving you the flexibility of blinds with the easy operation of a shade. It comes with adjustable vanes nestled between two sheer panels. You’ll be able to select the width of these vanes, as well as choose from a wide variety of fabrics.
Silhouette can be customized with ClearView™, which gives you full advantage of your gorgeous outdoor view, and Duolite®, which includes an incorporated room-darkening roller shade. Make them easier to raise by adding a smart operating system, which lets you move your shades from your smartphone.
3. Honeycomb Shades
Honeycomb shades offer comparable light-filtering capabilities to sheer shades, but improved energy efficiency. This makes them a good option for bay windows, regardless of where they’re installed in your house.
Honeycomb shades come with pockets that hold on to air at the windows, which are your residence’s main source of energy loss. This keeps indoor temperatures more stable and you comfier, which might help reduce your heating and cooling expenses.
If you love the look of plantation shutters but have a limited budget, blinds are a great option. Plantation blinds use thicker louvers, in the style of plantation shutters, and can be customized in real wood or polymer models.
If your bay windows attract a good deal of sunshine, we’d suggest polymer as it can take on sun and extreme temperatures without cracking or bending. If your windows are in a cooler spot and you are looking for the most classic appearance, real wood is the best choice.
With custom blinds from Louver Shop of Birmingham, you’ll have access to a complete collection of paints, stains and cordless operating systems. This includes PowerView™, which gives you the ability to control your blinds with your smartphone or tablet.
