Bay Windows: Window Dressing Options
Bay windows let in loads of light, provide excellent views and for a lot of people they can make a room a dream come true. But dressing them with blinds can ruin a good thing if not done right. In this month’s article, we’ll be looking at just a few of the things you should be considering when planning to have blinds in your bay windows.
Made to Measure Blinds
Above all else, even before you come to deciding which style of blind you would prefer, you must ensure that your supplier provides blinds made to measure. Bay windows vary in size depending on the home, making fitting standard blinds an awkward business. You could end up with blinds that don’t line up correctly if they are not measured. Ensuring that your supplier is experienced and will provide made to measure blinds will save you trouble down the line.
The quintessential variety of blind, Roman blinds have stood the test of time and now look ideal in bay windows. They are perfectly suited for square bay windows and will keep your room well-insulated throughout the year. Roman blinds come in a huge variety of styles and patterns. As a result, you can utilise them to a great degree to complement or contrast against the decorative vision you have for the room as a whole.
Roller blinds are a simple design that can be used to create unique ambient levels in your room. Like Roman Blinds, they come in a whole host of different styles, meaning no matter what your tastes may be, there’ll be something for you.
Perfect Fit Blinds
If you’re looking for a neat and tidy design that also provides unprecedented levels of lighting control, perfect fit blinds will be right up your street. These blinds sit in the window frame itself, leaving the windowsill free from obstruction. They can come in either roller, Venetian or pleated varieties, allowing you to select a design that most reflects your requirements. They are clipped onto the beading of the window frame so do not damage the window, therefore looking truly spectacular while having very few drawbacks.
