Bay windows are an architectural treat in any home. They look graceful and let natural light into your rooms. Bay window treatments offer you complete control over this abundance of light while they draw attention to the elegant feature.
A Double Treat
You can create a layered look with drapery panels to cover the mullions as well as add a privacy treatment for each window if necessary. Options for privacy are abundant. Roman shades, cellular shades, roller shades, and faux wood blinds are all examples of what can be used.
Smart and Sweet
Bay windows in a bedroom allow extra light in for a feeling of comfort and warmth. There are times that opening and closing draperies are applicable for a bay window. Draperies depending on the weight of the fabric can even be put on simple traversing white rodding and opening from the center or a one way draw. One must consider when doing this whether they want black out lining or not. One must also consider how the draperies when opened will stack off the windows as this will play a role in deciding if this is the right option. Otherwise, the option mentioned above with panels down the mullions and separate privacy for each window is more than applicable. Or one may have privacy on each window and have a simple nice valance above that fits the bay. For added depth, panels may also be applied.
Strategic and Subtle
If the room in your home with bay windows has beautiful molding surrounding them, you will want that feature to be displayed. You can hang window treatments at the ceiling to add height to a room and space them strategically so as not to cover the molding. In this case, a light and flowing fabric with a delicate floral pattern will not overtake the room.
