Best Blinds for a Bay Window

Bay windows have always conjured images of lazy rainy afternoons and curling up with a good book while enjoying the view.  It is hard to imagine why anyone would want to cover them.  However, although bay windows allow people to bask in the beauty of the outdoors while being indoors, they can be a source of privacy and insulation problems.  Covering them doesn’t have to detract from their beauty.  There are several types of blinds that can add privacy, prevent heat loss and block excessive sunlight while adding character.

A great option to explore when covering bay windows are wood blinds.  Wood blinds are natural and beautiful on their own and when added to a bay window, they can create a rather striking, high-end look to any home.  They also complement any existing décor and will be a great addition to any home.   The other particularly good thing about wood blinds is the fact that they can be painted or stained.  Those who are concerned that wood blinds will make a room appear dark can opt for a light stain or white paint to brighten the space.

Roman blinds are another viable option for bay windows.  For such a large space it is important to choose a neutral coloured fabric and avoid busy or loud patterns, as these might clash with the room’s decor or be hard to match if new furniture is added later on.
