Bay windows in Derby

How to dress beautiful bay windows

Bay windows are big and beautiful and open up space in your home. They have more glass, come in unique shapes and sizes and let in a lovely amount of sunlight.

But the billion dollar question if you’ve got a 1930s bay window in your home, or are about to install new ones from Trade Windows, is how do you sprinkle the right amount of design magic to create something stylish and elegant in your house?

Across Derby, in areas like Six Streets, Allestree, Shelton Lock and Chaddesden, there are an abundance of 1930s Victorian homes with beautiful bay windows.

Here’s our expert advice on how to find the perfect home styling solution.

1. Made-to-measure curtains create a stunning look

Our bay and bow windows at Trade Windows are the perfect choice if you want to add character to your property – especially if your home dates back to the 1930s.

They are an ideal choice if you want to keep with tradition and preserve the charm of your home, but they also make a stunning addition to modern houses looking to create a standout feature.

If you’ve got the budget, a good tip is to opt for made-to-measure curtains, especially if you want to ensure that they’ll fit into the panes of the window properly and won’t overlap.

Made-to-measure curtains will provide a snug fit to any of our new bay and bow windows and they can be installed simply and efficiently. You can also choose to have floor length curtains made too.

2. Perfect fit blinds

Trade Windows can fit new bay and bow windows to replace your old windows, or we can install completely new windows in any large openings you have.

While it’s wonderful to have original period features, like a bay window, it’s important to think about how you’re going to dress the room. Perhaps you’re thinking of creating a stunning window seat within your Victorian bay and this will blend in perfectly within your period home.

Bay windows let in so much sought-after light and offer excellent views up and down the street, but you need to think about how to create privacy in the evening.

Roman blinds can be the perfect solution and can be made to hang slightly over the frame of the window to ensure the entire glass is covered and there are no gaps at the edges of the blinds. To make your room stand out, why not choose a bold patterned fabric to create an eye-catching frame around your bay or bow window.

3. Bespoke shutters

Shutters are bold and beautiful and really make a feature of your bay window. They combine sleek design with style, form and function and at the same time, maximise light and space in every corner of your room.

Shutters are also low maintenance and can be fixed directly to your window frames, freeing up space and making the most of your room.

Another advantage of having shutters, is you get to control light levels and privacy and of course, they will be made to measure to fit your bay or bow window perfectly.
