Pirouette® Window Shadings Fabric: Shantung  Color: Agave. Shop Hunter Douglas at JC Licht in Chicago.

The Sheer Beauty of Bay Window Treatments

Sheers are a gorgeous choice for bay windows because they really accentuate your views while softly filtering natural light. Pirouette® window shadings, for instance, are designed with soft, horizontal fabric vanes attached to a single sheer backing. The vanes can be flattened for complete privacy or opened to any position for optimal light control. Another option is Silhouette® window shadings featuring S-shaped vanes that appear to magically float between two sheers. When open, they create a soft, warm glow, while the rear sheer offers daytime privacy.

Perfect window shades for bay windows available in Chicago at JC Licht

Add Texture with Woven Wood Shades

Made from natural materials like bamboo, grasses and reeds, woven wood shades can really enhance the look of a bay window. You can use them alone or with a room-darkening liner. Provenance ® Woven Wood Shades are also available with the Top-Down/Bottom-Up design option for more light control. Nice thing, too, is that woven wood shades work well with almost any décor, from modern to Mediterranean. They’re a very eco-friendly window treatment as well.

Heritance® Hardwood Shutters Material: Hardwood  Color: Perfect White

Shutters: The Classic Touch to Bay Windows Treatments

Shutters are another beautiful complement to bay windows. Besides being durable, they provide great sound absorption and energy efficiency. You can find options ranging from real wood to hybrid shutters to Polysatin™ shutters that are durable enough to withstand extreme light and humidity. They also provide 99% UV protection when the louvers are closed, so you can protect your furnishings, flooring and artwork.

Parkland® Wood Blinds Material: Basswood  Color: Greyberry

The Rich Look of Wood Blinds

Wood blinds add a warm, inviting feel to bay windows. Parkland​® wood blinds, for example, are handcrafted from genuine hardwood and come in a variety of finishes, slat sizes and decorative tapes. Or, you could opt for EverWood​® alternative wood blinds that feature realistic grain patterns, yet are guaranteed against fading, yellowing, warping or bowing—something to think about if you have a lot of sun coming through your bay window.
