Which Blind? – Bay Windows

September 28th, 2014 in All About Blinds

Bay windows are a popular feature on Victorian buildings- although many modern builds still use them today. They help to give your home that period feel as well as creating a focal point in your room.

Beautiful as they are, fitting blinds or curtains is often a necessity as they’re quite large in size and will allow a great view both in and out of your property, as well as letting in plenty of light.

You can fit most blinds in a bay window but we’ve compiled a quick list of the best looking ones to use to keep your home feeling sleek and stylish!

Roman Blinds


Always a stylish and elegant choice, roman blinds can fit wonderfully into your bay window.

You can usually ask for the top panels to be made at the same height to ensure that the folds are level all the way across the window and many designs can often be pattern matched across each blind, giving your window a beautiful and continuous effect.

Vertical Blinds



Particularly good for the right angles of square bay windows, vertical blinds will give your room a sleek and sophisticated finish.

Choose a textured fabric to give your window further detail or even try a blackout or energy saving option to really take advantage of the practicality of these blinds.

Wooden Blinds



When lined up perfectly, wooden venetian blinds create a stunning and symmetrical look at your window that oozes style and elegance.

An ideal choice if your room features traditional or rustic decor, many of the brackets supplied with wooden blinds can either be fixed onto the window frames themselves or to the top of the alcove, allowing you a little flexibility when it comes to fitting them.



Although some people choose to use curved curtain poles and fit the curtains inside the bay window, you can also hang them like the picture above.

While this option will leave a little floor space between the curtains and the window itself, if you’ve got a considerable amount of windowsill, this can be a great way to make sure that you keep that space and can display your little knick-knacks safely.


There are plenty of ways that you can dress your bay window. Have you used any of these blinds to decorate yours? Or have you used a different type that works just as well? Feel free to let us know in the comments 🙂

    • Hi Kamlesh, our vertical blinds come on straight headrails, rather than curved ones. Many of our customers order a blind for each window pane, and if measured properly they’ll work and look as good as single track. This link has all the information about measuring for bay windows-
