What type of blinds are best for bay windows?
There’s no doubt about it: bay windows create a striking statement in both traditional and modern homes, instantly injecting style and elegance into any property. Not only that, they are also very beneficial from a practical level as they let in plenty of natural light for a brighter, more spacious room.
That said, the large size of bay windows means the correct type of blinds needs to be used to improve light control and limit view into your property. Therefore, you must pay careful consideration to your choice of blinds to ensure they not only deliver on style, but practicality too.
This article will serve to explain which type of blinds are best for bay windows, ensuring you find a set which fits perfectly, as well as complementing the rest of your decor seamlessly.
1. Wooden blinds
Bringing the beauty of nature into homes is a popular interior design trend for 2016, and your choice of blinds is a cost-effective way of achieving this look in your property. Wooden blinds create an organic, luxurious feel, perfect for rooms which feature rustic decor. The versatility of fitting wooden venetian blinds means they can either be fixed onto the window frames themselves, or to the top of the recess. Take a look at our article from last August to find out more about the correct way to fit venetian blinds.
If you are searching for an authentic brushed wood look, the Sunwood – Fired Walnut venetian blind from our wood blinds range is the ideal option. Alternatively, if you are looking for a slightly lighter colour tone, our Sunwood – Beech venetian blind would be a more suitable design to replicate the look of natural beech wood.
2. Roman blinds
Commonly considered a traditional style of blind, Roman blinds are a popular choice for dressing bay windows. They operate by folding up on itself, offering improved light control and privacy levels, as well as a tidy look.
The unique shape of a bay window means Roman blinds usually aren’t supplied with curved rails, but are individually fitted to each window panel to follow the shape of the bay. Whether you are looking for dark, rich browns to complement a rustic theme, beiges and creams to fit with a neutral colour palette or vibrant fuchsia for a bold statement, our range offers plenty of different hues for you to choose from.
3. Roller blinds
Similar to Roman blinds, roller blinds offer exceptional light control, meaning you can let as much or as little natural light into the room as you wish. By allowing light to gently filter into the room, you instantly create a relaxing ambience for you and your family to enjoy.
From patterns and textures to bold block colour and neutral hues, our range of roller blinds are available in various different designs. If you are looking to incorporate natural elements into your interior design, Kimono Lilac or Elizabeth Aubergine from our roller blind range offer the ideal solution. They both feature delicate natural prints which fit perfectly with this theme, while making sure not to overbear the room. Alternatively, our Marble Vapour and Marble Moon roller blinds provide a more subtle approach to the natural theme, whilst creating an elegant, luxurious look.
