Bay windows are a stunning way to draw attention to your Charlotte home’s architectural style. With built-in seating and a wide view of outside, they can be an appealing place to sit with family while enjoying a meal or great novel.
When it’s time to replace your window treatments, bay windows could seem tricky to cover due to their size and shape. You’ll also need to consider how much sunshine the windows receive, and what level of light filtering or privacy you want.
By partnering with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Charlotte, you’ll see just how simple it is to develop a custom solution for your windows. We’ll review all the possibilities during your free consultation. You’ll have knowledgeable advice under zero pressure or obligation to buy.
With the correct window treatments, bay windows can be a stunning centerpiece in your house. Here are our designers’ favorites for best window treatments for bay windows.
1. Plantation Shutters
Plantation shutters are as multifaceted as they are durable. These energy-efficient window treatments can be used in nearly every area and window in your residence. With exclusive styles from Louver Shop of Charlotte, you’ll receive trouble-free performance for many years.
When designing custom shutters with our pros, you’ll have a choice of materials to best enhance your residence. If your bay windows are in a shady spot in your house, furniture-grade basswood is a gorgeous selection. If your windows receive a lot of sun or heat, our modern synthetic LouverWood® shutters deliver excellent insulating effectiveness without cracking or bending.
Whichever material you choose, you’ll be able to customize your paint or stain, louver size, frame style and more.
2. Sheer Shades
With an impressive variety of styles, colors and discretionary improvements to choose from, custom shades are one of the most adaptable window treatments for bay windows.
If your bay windows are in your living room, you could be attempting to balance privacy with letting in sunshine. Sheer shades are an excellent option since the fabric gives some privacy while transforming bright sunshine into a welcoming glow. You’ll also enjoy a broad view of your stunning yard.
Silhouette® shades take it a step further, offering you the control of blinds with the convenience of a shade. It features adjustable vanes that float between two sheer panels. You’ll be able to choose the thickness of these vanes, as well as select from a wide assortment of fabrics.
Silhouette can be upgraded with ClearView™, which gives you the widest gorgeous outdoor view, and Duolite®, which has an incorporated room-darkening roller shade. Make them quicker to lower by adding a smart operating system, which lets you control your shades from your smartphone.
3. Honeycomb Shades
Honeycomb shades offer similar light-filtering capabilities to sheer shades, but increased energy efficiency. This makes them a good option for bay windows, regardless of where they’re installed in your house.
Honeycomb shades have pockets that keep air at the windows, which are your home’s main source of energy loss. This keeps indoor temperatures more stable and you cozier, which might help lower your utility expenses.
If you love the look of plantation shutters but have a smaller budget, blinds are a great second choice. Plantation blinds have thicker louvers, in the style of plantation shutters, and come in genuine wood or polymer styles.
If your bay windows attract a good deal of sunshine, we’d suggest polymer since it stands up to sun and extreme temperatures without cracking or warping. If your windows are in a shaded location and you are looking for the most timeless style, 100% wood is the wisest choice.
With custom blinds from Louver Shop of Charlotte, you’ll be able to select from a complete collection of paints, stains and cordless operating systems. This includes PowerView™, which allows you to move your blinds with your smartphone or tablet.
