The Bay Windows look a bit unusual, so you can create problems in the design. It is a window space, which, protruding outward from the main walls of the building, forms the niche in the room. What is really hard to do is to choose the right curtains for such Windows.
Ideally, the curve of the pole should match the shape of the window, but as it turns out, is quite a complicated task. A much better solution would be to have three separate cornice.
You can use one large curtain for all three Windows if you don’t plan to open and close curtains, and just use them for window clearance.
If the Windows are large and reach almost to the ceiling, if you want to use long curtains you will need one for each of them. The curtains will be opened and closed separately, so you will be able to push the window fully.
But if you want to only hang two curtains, one should be very creative and to compromise. Bay Windows can create a kind of shallow balconies, which can be masked with curtains.
Bay Windows is a really good idea for the bedroom. They provide a great opportunity to create a reading corner or a small comfortable lounge area with Seating on the window sills and a panoramic view.
If you choose one ledge for mounting the curtains, going from corner to corner, to limit myself to two curtains will not work. Most likely you will need three or four curtains. Everything will depend on how you attach the cornice to the wall.
If the Bay Windows form a smooth graceful curve, not angular structure, it is possible to find the flexible curtain rods. This is a great way to visually expand the room.
The extra space can be a convenient Breakfast nook. The cornice can be hidden behind a false ceiling that will allow the curtains look very stylish.
If symmetry is what you prefer in design, the four curtains will be the ideal option for your Windows. Two curtains will close the side Windows and the other two will meet in the center.
You may be looking for a way to reduce the amount of curtains only to two, in this case, the design is still symmetrical, but more simplistic. This strategy can work for both traditional and modern interiors.
There is also the option to hide the cornice and top of the curtains, thus having a smooth uniform appearance, without exhibiting all the secondary parts and technical elements.
The valance can certainly give all the smoothness and elegance, but keep in mind that this item best fits a traditional decor. Modern interior with Bay Windows, will require more simplified and austere decor.
If long and heavy curtains are not your style, try other types of window design. What if each window has its own curtain? Then you won’t have to worry about how the curtains are attached or how many curtains you need.
Roman shades allow you to create clean, simple and versatile look. They also allow you to control the amount of light and shade on each window. They look really chic in a beach house.
