In many cases, window treatments for bay windows can be overwhelming. You do not want to overtake the window or the room. A lot depends on the window itself, the room, and your personal style. Here are a few of our ideas.
To keep the look neat, crisp, and clean, simply use a roman or roll-up shade on each window. When rolled up, a shade with a lively pattern creates a valance that can nicely tie together your upholstery and the room.
If it is privacy you are after, a bay window area can be shuttered with either floor length shutters or smaller cut-to-fit window shutters. This is a more tailored look than you would achieve with draperies. Wood shutters are flexible, they let in the light and the view, completely blocking both or allowing for both, and they have a certain country charm. Of course, shutters are not restricted to country decorating. When you use them along with drapes and swags made of elegant fabrics you get charm with sophistication. Note, too, that by bracketing the window with long drapes, the width of the bay can be enhanced.
For flexibility, dress a bay window niche or seat with two layers of fabric. Sheers that pull across will cut the glare and increase privacy, while patterned velvet or silk panels will add color and style to any room.
A wall-and-rod treatment gathers the curtain along the rods, and the curtains themselves can be used to cover the walls. Where you have a great view and the windows are in good shape, this is a fabulous idea. However, when you have a pretty yard or view, a colorful fabric valance may be the only treatment you need.
Use big bay windows to create a room within a room. A bevy of curtain panels and swags can create a nice space. This looks great in a large room, as the overabundance of fabric could overwhelm a regular room.
