Bay Window Shutters In Essex

Bay windows – these being the window constructions that protrude outward from the main walls of a building, effectively forming a ‘bay’ in a room – have long been much-admired architectural features.

However, they have also historically posed some challenges to property owners when it comes to deciding on the most suitable window dressing. Could our own bespoke bay window shutters be the answer?

The use of bay windows goes back many centuries, and today, they are often particularly strongly associated with the great country manor houses that survive across the UK.

Few of us today who admire great architecture would deny that bay windows often look splendid, although it is important to acknowledge that they first came into being for practical, as much as for aesthetic reasons. Specifically, the purpose of them was to allow more light into a room, as delivered with the help of a larger window surface.

Probably the big downside of that larger window surface, though, is the issues it can pose in terms of the amount of light and heat allowed to enter – or escape – the given room. During the winter, for instance, there’s a lot of scope for heat inside the building to dissipate out of the window. Then, come the summer, you might have the opposite problem with your bay window: heat getting into your home a bit too easily through it, at the very time when you may prefer to minimise that.

It’s a similar story as far as light is concerned, too much of which may flow into the room unimpeded during the brighter months. These, then, are immediate practical reasons to look seriously at bay window shutters, the very purpose of which is to allow the occupants of a building to control the levels of heat and light allowed to enter – or leave – the given space.

Then, of course, there are the aesthetic factors. The right bay window shutters can add to the ‘kerb appeal’ of your home to those passing by from outside. They can also be made on a bespoke basis to suit the shape of your bay window, allowing you to achieve the perfect look and even making the room appear bigger, given that there won’t be anything hanging down or cutting across the front of the bay.
