With panoramic views allowing plenty of light to enter a room and protruding panels giving the illusion of a larger home, bay windows are highly desirable. If you’re lucky enough to have such an elegant style of window in your home, chances are that you’re going to want to dress them in a way which isn’t going to detract from them.
How to dress a bay window
As great as bay windows are, sometimes the very things we love most about them can also be to their detriment. The fact they offer expansive views for example is fantastic if you have beautiful surroundings and like to let plenty of natural light in. The downside however is that it’s not very private.
They are by far the best way to ensure you get the best of both worlds. You can enjoy all the benefits of bay windows without having to compromise on anything. With shutters:
- You can adjust the slats to let in as much or as little light as you wish
- You can choose a stunning shutter style that meets your taste and interior design aesthetic
- Slats can also be used to control privacy. Alternatively, if you opt for a tier-on-tier style, you can keep the bottom section closed so nobody can see inside and the top open to let in natural sunlight
- Because bay windows are so large, they can be a bit chilly. Shutters offer an extra layer of insulation which will keep your house nice and warm
- Unlike curtains and blinds, shutters are made to measure to follow the shape of your window. This means that you don’t have to worry about losing this space when you close them
