Bay windows are a beautiful attribute in any home. Coveted by lovers of period features, they let in lots of natural light and can also create more space in a room. But whilst their unique shape brings a point of architectural interest to a room, they can also be tricky to dress correctly to make the most of the feature.
At Kingswood At Home, we believe the best way to accentuate your bay windows is with bespoke shutters, made-to-measure blinds, and unique tailor-made storage and window seats. Below, we delve into our favourite bay window ideas for your bedroom.
Bold Patterned Blinds
You can bring attention to the bay window in your bedroom with a bold patterned blind. Choose an accent colour that matches the rest of your bedroom interior to ensure your bay window is seamlessly incorporated into your décor whilst still standing out as a feature. Use soft furnishings, like bed sheets and cushions, that use the same accent colour or colour palette to bring the room together.
Kingswood At Home has a huge range of vibrant colours and patterns of both roller blinds and roman blinds, so you can find the perfect choice for your bedroom. We also have blackout options, so they’re ideal for helping you to get a good night’s sleep. Plus, our blinds can be tailor-made to perfectly fit any window frame, offering complete privacy.
Soft Neutral Blinds
If bold patterns aren’t to your tastes, a bay window can look just as stunning with a soft, neutral blind. Lighter shades will help to make the room even brighter, enhancing the natural light that comes with bay windows. If you like to wake up with the sun, go for a sheer fabric to let in diffused sunlight in the morning. Or choose a neutral colour on a blackout blind to allow the bay window to stand out without letting the light in.
Kingswood At Home has a variety of made-to-measure blinds in neutral tones, so you can pick the right shade for your bedroom. Our blinds also have wipe-clean options available, so you can always keep them looking fresh.
Venetian Blinds to Enhance the Structure
Venetian blinds are a great option if you want to be able to control how much light enters your bedroom and still celebrate the bones of your bay window. Venetian blinds will allow you to have full control over the light, completely closing them at night for privacy or fully opening them during the day to accentuate the bay window. Venetian blinds work beautifully if your bay window has bold wooden frames that deserve to be seen.
Kingswood At Home’s range of Venetian blinds brings a sense of elegance to any home. We have Venetian blinds available in a range of colours and widths of slats, so you can create the perfect look for your bedroom and bay window.
Tier-on-Tier Shutters for Versatility
Tier-on-tier shutters are perfect for large bay windows, giving you full control over the privacy and the amount of light that enters your bedroom. With two independent layers of shutter, each panel can be adjusted separately, opening them or closing them completely. Ideal for bedrooms, simply close the bottom layer and open the top so you can still have plenty of light when you need it.
Kingswood At Home offers bespoke tier-on-tier shutters available in a range of colours and finishes, including wood stains, so you can find the right shutters for your interior.
Solid Shutters for Full Privacy
Solid shutters will provide complete privacy, shutting out both the noise and the light from outside. They work fantastically with bay windows, bringing together the classic period look. Choose a vibrant colour to make a statement piece with your bay window and bring a modern feel to the period features. Or pick a subtle, neutral colour to let the architecture stand out on its own.
Kingswood At Home provides bespoke solid shutters in a huge range of colours and finishes, including wood stains.
Incorporate a Window Seat
A window seat in your bay window makes the most of space that might otherwise be unused. You can create a cosy reading nook in your bedroom with a window seat, or just have the option for extra seating. You could even incorporate a storage bench with your window seat to maximise the available space. We recommend dressing your window seat in upholstery that matches the rest of your bedroom, to enhance your décor and bring everything together.
Kingswood At Home can custom build a window seat for your bay window, integrating drawers, cupboards, or under-bench storage, if required. We’ll work with you to find the right solution for your interior and lifestyle, from the initial design to expertly fitting.
