Bay windows are a beautiful way to show off your Lake Charles residence’s architectural style. With convenient seating and an extensive view of scenery, they can be an inviting place to gather with loved ones while enjoying a meal or good novel.
When it’s time to update your window treatments, bay windows may seem tricky to cover because of their size and shape. You’ll also need to take into account how much sun the windows have, and what amount of light filtering or privacy you want.
By partnering with a window treatment specialist like Louver Shop of Louisiana, you’ll see just how fast it is to develop a custom solution for your home. We’ll review all your options during your free consultation. You’ll enjoy expert advice under no pressure or obligation to buy.
With the correct window treatments, bay windows can be a beautiful centerpiece in your house. Here are our designers’ top picks for best window treatments for bay windows.
1. Plantation Shutters
Plantation shutters are as versatile as they are resilient. These energy-efficient window treatments can be hung in nearly every space and window in your house. With exclusive types from Louver Shop of Louisiana, you’ll have trouble-free performance for many years.
When designing custom shutters with our professionals, you’ll be able to choose materials to best suit your home. If your bay windows are in a cooler spot in your home, furniture-grade basswood is a classic selection. If your windows experience a lot of sunshine or heat, our modern synthetic LouverWood® shutters provide outstanding insulating effectiveness without cracking or bending.
Whichever material you choose, you’ll have the option to customize your paint or stain, louver size, frame type and more.
2. Sheer Shades
With a wide collection of styles, colors and optional enhancements to choose from, custom shades are one of the most adaptable window treatments for bay windows.
If your bay windows are located in your living room, you may be making an attempt to counterbalance privacy with allowing in natural light. Sheer shades are a great solution because the fabric provides some privacy while converting strong sunshine into a warm glow. You’ll also have a broad view of your beautiful yard.
Silhouette® shades take it a step further, offering you the control of blinds with the easy use of a shade. It comes with adjustable vanes that float between two sheer panels. You’ll be able to customize the size of these vanes, as well as select from a full assortment of fabrics.
Silhouette can be upgraded with ClearView™, which gives you full advantage of your gorgeous outdoor view, and Duolite®, which includes a built-in room-darkening roller shade. Make them faster to raise by adding a smart operating system, which lets you manage your shades from your smartphone.
3. Honeycomb Shades
Honeycomb shades offer equivalent light-filtering capabilities to sheer shades, but better energy efficiency. This makes them a great choice for bay windows, no matter where they’re situated in your home.
Honeycomb shades come with chambers that catch air at the windows, which are your residence’s number one source of energy loss. This keeps indoor temperatures more stable and you cozier, which could help lower your utility costs.
If you love the appearance of plantation shutters but have a smaller budget, blinds are a great second choice. Plantation blinds come with wider louvers, similar to plantation shutters, and can be customized in 100% wood or polymer options.
If your bay windows receive a good deal of sunshine, our specialists suggest polymer since it stands up to sun and extreme temperatures without cracking or warping. If your windows are in a cooler location and you want the most timeless style, 100% wood is the smartest choice.
With custom blinds from Louver Shop of Louisiana, you’ll be able to choose from a full 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.
