Bay windows are a beautiful feature and provide added light and space to any room. But knowing how to dress them can be tricky. Do you opt for blinds? Or Curtains? Or do you opt for shutters? Can you even put shutters on a bay window?
The answer is yes! Shutters are one of the very best window dressings for bay windows. They look sleek and stylish, last for years to come and can even be paired with curtains. Find out more about the benefits of bay window shutters…
So, it is clear that putting shutters on a bay window is an excellent idea! They are practical, always stylish and can increase the value of your home. However, several types of shutters look amazing on bay windows. Here are the most popular shutter styles for bay windows:
Full height shutters are by far the most popular shutters on the market. And rightfully so. They can be tailored to perfectly fit any window, regardless of shape or size. Plus, they’re versatile and provide excellent light and privacy control.
Full height shutters cover the whole window. The panels can be opened and closed, and the louvres can be adjusted to control the light. They are available in a range of finishes and colours.
Café style shutters are a popular choice for ground floor bay windows, particularly in lounges, dining rooms and offices. As with all shutters, café style shutters are perfectly fit to snuggly sit on your bay windows.
The difference is, café style bay window shutters cover only the bottom half of the windows. This allows you to maintain privacy in your home whilst letting the natural light flood in. They are particularly great if you have a small room that needs a lot of light.
Tier on tier shutters are similar to full height shutters in that they cover the entirety of the bay windows. However, these nifty shutters feature a mid-rail that separates the top half of the shutter panel from the bottom half. This offers unrivalled versatility.
You can have the top half of the shutters open to let the light in whilst keeping the bottom half closed for privacy. Tier on tier shutters look amazing on tall, large bay windows.
If you have a period home, or you’re going for a traditional look with your home décor, you may prefer solid panel bay window shutters.
Solid panel shutters do not offer as much versatility as other shutters styles, but they will enhance your period home, provide near blackout when closed and offer insulation for your bay windows. As with all shutters, solid panel shutters are available in a range of colours.
