How Do You Highlight Your Bay Windows?

How do you bring out the beauty and splendor in those large, lovely bay windows you’ve got in your living room? They expand your view to the outside, and let plenty of soft, natural light in. Finding the right window treatments for your living room bay windows may seem like a daunting task because of the bay windows’ signature angling, but it’s not as difficult as you might think, and you’re definitely not limited with your options. 

You can find just the perfect bay window coverings to match your taste, as well as your home’s décor. Read on for a look at some recommendations.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, also known as “cell shades,” or “honeycomb shades” due to their honeycomb-like construction are a popular and modern choice for any space. Traditionally they close from the top down, similar to roller shades, but there’s another option: Top Down Bottom Up. Top down Bottom Up cell shades are great if you want to keep your privacy and still let in some natural light. The honeycomb construction insulates your windows to help you keep the heat out in the summer and keep the heat in during the winter. You’ll love what they do to lower your annual energy costs.

Wood Blinds

Real wood blinds carry with them a timeless elegance. If  you’re going for a warmer, more natural look, you can always rely on wood blinds. Their classic look and feel never wear out their welcome. They’re sharp, crisp, and alluring to the touch; they’ll complement just about any décor. 


For a look and feel that steals the show, whether in the city, the country, or if you’re going for a coastal or Farmhouse look, shutters are where it’s at. They’re most commonly constructed of real wood or faux wood, they can give you a wide open view, or offer privacy when they’re closed shut. There is a wide selection of stains and paints to choose from to help you create the look you’re after. If your bay windows are in the kitchen or in the bathroom (areas of the home known for moisture), opt for faux wood shutters. They’re moisture-resistant and built to last a long time, so you can be sure they’ll be around to enjoy for years.

Bamboo Shades

Bamboo/woven wood shades look great covering bay windows because they effortlessly add texture to your room, along with a natural warmth, like wood blinds. Whether you’re going for a modern, traditional, minimalist, or rustic style, bamboo shades perfectly fit right in. Choose from a variety of textures and materials, to help you customize your specific dream space.

Solar Shades

Maybe you love it when the sun shines into your home, but you hate what the UV rays do to your furniture and interior. You need solar shades.  Keep your great view outside, while enjoying privacy and protection from solar rays. They’ll help keep your home cool, too. Commonly made of flame-retardant PVC, they are sturdy, while remaining sleek and new-looking.

Roller Shades

Another classic window treatment is roller shades. Your inexhaustible selection of colors and textures will allow you to pair your rollers with just about any paint color, wallpaper, and décor. You can find the perfect combination of function and aesthetics to make your bay windows really shine.
