The Best Window Treatments for Bow and Bay Windows

by Kim

Discover the best window treatment styles for bow and bay windows, including Hunter Douglas blinds, shades, shutters and custom drapery options.

Hunter Douglas Silhouette® window shadings

Architectural details like bow or bay windows add beautiful character and visual interest to a room. Views to the outside are expansive and incoming light makes the space bright and cheerful. But at night, these feature windows can make you feel like you’re living in a fishbowl. Window treatments offer much needed privacy during twilight hours, but many homeowners find it difficult to choose the right style for specialty shaped windows.

Are you having trouble determining the best window covering solution for your bow or bay window? Don’t sweat, there are many great options that will offer the privacy and light control you desire without detracting from the character of the windows.

Hunter Douglas Pirouette window shadings are the perfect window coverings solution for bow or bay windows offering light control and privacy.

Streamline with shades

If you prefer window treatments to play a purely functional role, disappearing when not in use, then consider installing sheers and shades in a similar color to the window frame and/or molding for a streamlined appearance.

Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades, Pirouette® window shadings and Silhouette® window shadings are a great choice for bow and bay windows. When lowered, shades provide soft visual interest, privacy and light control. When raised, window treatments hide discreetly in the headrail and valance maximizing view through.

Amp up drama with blinds and shutters

Blinds and shutters are high impact window treatment styles that will enhance the look of your bow or bay window. To make window treatments appear as if they are structurally part of the window, choose stains and finishes that match the window casing and molding. To amp up the drama of these statement windows, choose Hunter Douglas Parkland® wood blinds or Heritance® hardwood shutters in a rich, contrasting stain to increase visual interest.

Hunter Douglas Heritance hardwood shutters are the perfect window covering solution for bow and bay windows offering privacy, light control and character.

Beautify with custom drapery

If you wish your window treatments to play a more decorative role, then consider choosing custom drapery that offers softness and beauty. For easy installation, mount drapery on the wall outside the bow or bay window, framing the view. For more design impact, install drapery in the alcove using a custom curved or angled drapery rod.

Maximize visual interest by layering window treatments

If you’re still have a hard time deciding between window treatment styles, consider adding more than one window treatment to the space. Custom drapery pairs well with blinds, shades and shutters, offering softness to windows with more structured window treatments.
