There are several reasons why people decide to install bay windows in their home. The most common is that they want to create a more open feel within their room. Bay windows extend out beyond the exterior walls of the house and have a shelf that extends out as well.
One of the major problems that homeowners face when they install these bay windows is covering them. Traditional window coverings, such as blinds, shades, and curtains are clumsy or they cover up everything, including the shelf.
The best solution is to have wood shutters installed over your bay windows.
Wood shutters provide an elegant and refined appearance for just about any room in your home. They also ensure that you enjoy the maximum level of privacy and light control over every window.
For bay windows (as well as bow), wood shutters are installed against the actual windows so that you can enjoy the wide open feel that these windows provide. You can choose from a variety of different styles of shutters, depending on your personal preferences and needs. You can have split-top shutters that allow you to open just the top or bottom to maximize light coming in while also protecting privacy. You can have plantation shutters or paneled shutters, depending on what design you’re seeking for your room.
By having shutters covering your bay windows, you will still enjoy the shelf and even when the shutters are closed, the entire room will feel larger because of the nature of that window.
