Windows can be more than just rectangular shapes that connect interior spaces to the outside. In some cases, windows play an important part in the architectural design of a residential or commercial structure.For example, when you think about a Cape Cod home, something that comes to mind is a bay window with a large seating area to lay down and take a nap.
A cafe area or breakfast nook adorned with a bow window is a feature that can greatly increase the value of a Mediterranean revival home in South Florida. Corner windows look great on the ground or upper levels of Key West homes. Bay, corner, and bow windows are aesthetic on their own, but they also deserve to be given the right treatments.
For the most part, bay and bow windows are rectangular. Some corner windows may have geometric details to make them more decorative, but they are more the exception than the rule.
Rectangular window outlines make them easier to dress even if they have angled or curved details; nearly all of the treatment solutions we offer can be applied to the bay, bow, and corner windows. They can change the light in your home, to make it more aesthetically pleasing.
Bay window blinds and bay window shades are popular treatments, but if you really want to showcase this residential feature, hardwood plantation shutters are your best bet. If the bay windows you are looking to dress up have a seating area, Classic Heritage shutters from Hunter Douglas, which are made with natural hardwood, are highly recommended.
Technically speaking, you could apply just about any kind of treatment to corner windows, but corner window blinds will always be your best choice. If your corner windows are part of a breakfast nook near the kitchen, you may want to think about cafe curtains or sheer dressings at the top.
Bow window blinds and bow window shades are the perfect complements to homes that have panoramic bow windows. When these windows are part of a large den or family room, they can be improved with specialty Hunter Douglas treatments such as motorized blinds that you can operate via remote control.
