Bay windows are a stunning way to draw attention to your San Antonio house’s architectural features. With built-in seating and a wide view of the outdoors, they can be an appealing place to meet with family while enjoying a meal or good book.
When you need to update your window treatments, bay windows might seem tricky to cover because of their size and shape. You’ll also need to think about how much sun the windows have, and how much light filtering or privacy you are looking for.
By working with a window treatment pro like Louver Shop of San Antonio, you’ll see just how fast it is to develop a custom solution for your home. We’ll review all your choices during your free consultation. You’ll have expert advice under zero pressure or obligation to purchase.
With the right window treatments, bay windows can be a beautiful centerpiece in your house. Here are our designers’ top choices for best window treatments for bay windows.
1. Plantation Shutters
Plantation shutters are as adaptable as they are resilient. These energy-saving window treatments can be installed in practically every area and window in your residence. With exclusive models from Louver Shop of San Antonio, you’ll enjoy trouble-free performance for years.
When creating custom shutters with our pros, you’ll be able to select materials to best complement your house. If your bay windows are in a cooler spot in your residence, furniture-grade basswood is a timeless choice. If your windows receive a lot of sunshine or heat, our modern synthetic LouverWood® shutters deliver excellent insulating effectiveness without cracking or bending.
Whichever material you pick, you can customize your paint or stain, louver thickness, frame model and more.
2. Sheer Shades
With a broad collection of styles, colors and discretionary enhancements to select from, custom shades are one of the most flexible window treatments for bay windows.
If your bay windows are in your living room, you could be trying to balance privacy with adding daylight. Sheer shades are a great solution as the fabric provides some privacy while changing bright sunlight into a warm glow. You’ll also get a broad view of your beautiful yard.
Silhouette® shades go above and beyond, providing you the control of blinds with the easy use of a shade. It features adjustable vanes nestled between two sheer panels. You’ll be able to customize the thickness of these vanes, as well as select from a full variety of fabrics.
Silhouette can be customized with ClearView™, which makes the most of your gorgeous outdoor view, and Duolite®, which has an incorporated room-darkening roller shade. Make them faster to use by installing a smart operating system, which allows you to control your shades from your smartphone.
3. Honeycomb Shades
Honeycomb shades have equivalent light-filtering capabilities to sheer shades, but enhanced energy efficiency. This makes them a good solution for bay windows, regardless of where they’re situated in your house.
Honeycomb shades have cavities that trap air at the windows, which are your residence’s main source of energy loss. This keeps indoor temperatures regulated and you more comfortable, which might help lower your heating and cooling expenses.
If you love the appearance of plantation shutters but have a limited budget, blinds are a fantastic solution. Plantation blinds come with thicker louvers, like plantation shutters, and can be customized in real wood or polymer options.
If your bay windows get many hours of daylight, we’d advise you to choose polymer because it can take on sun and extreme temperatures without cracking or drooping. If your windows are in a cooler area and you are looking for the most timeless style, 100% wood is the best choice.
With custom blinds from Louver Shop of San Antonio, you’ll have access to a wide variety of paints, stains and cordless operating systems. This includes PowerView™, which gives you the option to manage your blinds with your smartphone or tablet.
