Bay Window Shutters

Whether you live in a modern or period home, bay windows are a common feature. Finding modern window treatments for a bay window isn’t always easy. Curtains require special rails, and blinds can be fiddly over multiple window panels. So can you fit shutters in bay windows? Yes, you most certainly can. And it’s easier than you might think. 


Shutters are perfect for bay windows of all styles and size

Looking for window covering ideas for a bay window? Our self-fit, made to measure shutters are a great solution for everything from Victorian bay windows to new build box bays.
Wooden shutters, in particular tier-on-tier shutters (aka, double-hung shutters), are super popular for bay windows. These indoor shutters let you open and close the top and bottom sections separately, so you have more control of the light coming in through your bay. Shutters on bay windows can also give you added privacy and security.
We can make shutters to fit any shape bay, whether you have a round bay window, a square bay window, a canted bay window (flat front and slanted sides) or an angled bay window.


Bay window treatment options

There are three main window treatments for bay windows; blinds, drapes and plantation shutters.

Bay window blinds:

Blinds are a popular bay window treatment choice for homeowners looking for an affordable window covering. They're stylish and modern, however if you choose poor quality blinds, they're likely to fade and warp over time. Bay window blinds also don't have the same insulation benefits as wooden shutters. 

Drapes for bay windows:

Drapes come in all colors and styles, so they're an easy choice to suit any interior design. Whilst thick drapes will help to keep the warmth inside, they don't have the same light control, noise reduction and privacy as shutters or blinds. Bay window drapes are either open or closed - there's no in between!
