6 Design Inspirations for Dressing Up Your Bay Windows

August 31, 2016

Some people regard bay windows as the best features they can add to their home. Often found in Victorian homes, these classically beautiful windows are also becoming more and more popular among modern properties today.


Bay windows offer a lot of benefits: they open up spaces, let in plenty of natural light, and offer beautifully clear views. Despite their advantages, however, they can be rather tricky to dress up. To help you decorate your bay windows, Huff ‘N Puff, one of the top window companies in upstate New York, offers these six design inspirations:

1. Shutters with an Elegant Valance

Bay windows are already gorgeous on their own, but you can further make the most out of their design by incorporating your personal style. If privacy is a major concern for you, then shutters are an ideal solution. You can pair them with an elegant valance for a more dressed-up feel.

2. Shutters and Roman Shades Combination

If you think covering the whole window with shutters is too much, you can choose to cover only its lower half. You can add a touch of drama by using Roman shades on the top portion.

3. Operable Roman Shades

Roman shades are a stunning way to spruce up the looks of your windows in Albany. However, most of them can be difficult to raise and lower. For a more functional option, go for operable Roman shades.

4. Woven Wood Shades

You can add an organic, comfortable feel to your design by using woven wood shades. Before using them, however, be sure to consider how much of your window needs to be covered for easier installation.

5. Traversing Draperies

They offer a relaxed, laidback style, although they might add visual weight to your windows. If you want to reveal even more of your window, you can easily tie their panels back.

6. Accent Colors and Wallpapers

Keep your design simple by painting a warm accent color on the wall that surrounds your bay replacement windows. Adding wallpapers to those walls offers the same effect.
