What is a Bay Window?

Bay windows are a set of windows that are angled towards each other creating an attractive curve. Due to the angles they allow plenty of light to flood into the room. A bay window will usually project out from your house giving you some extra floor space in the room. 

A bay window will usually consist of at least three windows. Two are positioned at an angle and the centre window is known as a picture window. The nature of the curves, angles and numerous window panes can make finding Roman blinds for your bay window a daunting task.


What are the Issues with Bay Windows

1. Several windows to cover

Measuring a bay window is not quite as straightforward as a normal window since you are measuring several window panes. Each window pane is separate and needs to be treated as such. You will need to be able to operate each blind independently to shade from the sun at different points in the day as required.

Roman blinds are easily installed to each window and can easily be opened or closed to suit your needs. Our bespoke Roman blinds are made specifically to your measurements so you can be certain that your blinds will be the perfect fit.


2. Space and depth

In addition to the usual measurements, depth is an important factor. Because your bay window has angles between the windows the blind that you choose will need the space to be mounted and operate smoothly without touching or impeding the other blind mechanisms.

This is why a Roman blind is a good choice with its slim mechanism, smaller than a roller blind for example, meaning there is less likelihood of a collision. Always check and double check before proceeding to mount your roman blinds.


3. Let there be light

One of the most attractive features of a bay window is the light. Some window coverings will block too much of the light that you enjoy, even when open. A Roman blind will still allow plenty of sunshine through when they are fully opened.
