I like working with bay windows. They vary so much in size and shape that no 2 bay windows are ever the same and this is precisely what makes dressing a bay window so challenging.

What ever window treatment you choose it is important to work with your windows and not against it. Don’t disguise or hide them in any way.

Make the bay area a focal point, bring it into the heart of your scheme and make sure that, as well as looking good, the bay provides comfort and extra storage space. Let’s face it, one can never have enough storage!

This type of project requires skill so I suggest you call in a professional!  A good carpenter or joiner should be able to build a good window seat for you that is both stylish and functional.  You can finish dressing the area with Roman Blinds for a tailored, smart look.  Add a few cushions to the seat, a small side table and all you will be missing is a good book and/or a glass of wine!
