Bay windows are a stunning home addition. Whether you turn it into a reading nook or keep it the window space as a focal point, bay windows catch the eye of anyone who enters your home.

Read on to learn more about bay window blinds, bay window shutters, and window shades for bay windows to find your perfect match.

Hunter Douglas Pirouette® Sheer Shades near Princeton and Hillsborough, New Jersey (NJ)

Window Shades for Bay Windows

A bay window consists of three windows that are positioned to each other in an angled shape, which means you need to find a shade that accommodates this type of build. Otherwise, you might have an ill-fitting window treatment that gives little light control, shade, or privacy. When it comes to window shades for bay blinds, you have several options:

  1. Sheers: Sheers accentuate the views of your bay window while filtering natural light for a soft glow throughout your home. Hunter Douglas Pirouette® Sheer Shades feature soft, horizontal fabric vanes attached to a sheer backing that look stunning on bay windows. With Hunter Douglas Silhouette® Sheer Shades, your bay windows will be adorned in S-shaped vanes that appear to magically float between two sheers for an ethereal style. When open, they create a soft, warm glow, while the rear sheer offers daytime privacy. It’s the best of both worlds.
  2. Woven Woods: If you want a shade that pairs well with any décor and is eco-friendly, consider Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades with the Top-Down/Bottom-Up design for more light control and the added texture of woven natural materials.

Bay Window Shutters

If you want to adorn your bay windows in timeless elegance, then shutters are an excellent route to peruse. Durable, excellent at providing sound absorption, and offering energy efficiency with their thick slats, shutters are here to impress. Your bay window shutter options include:

  1. Genuine Wood Shutters: Heritance® Wood Shutters offer the natural appeal of wood plus several customization options to enhance the unique beauty of your bay windows.
  2. Vinyl Shutters: If your bay window is in a kitchen or sees a lot of sunlight, we recommend the UV- and moisture-resistant Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Vinyl Shutters from Hunter Douglas.
