Bay windows are often a crowning and key feature of a room, in both a traditional and modern home, it is therefore a difficult decision for a homeowner or interior designer to make with what window decoration to use on them for both privacy and warmth, style and decoration. We believe that Shutters provide the perfect solution!

Bay window shutters blend into the window design rather than taking away from them or hiding them, allowing you to keep the perfect lines of the bay, keeping the area clean and crisp whilst maintaining the special aesthetics.

Plantation shutters are not only stylish and elegant but also more thermodynamically efficient. Bay windows, by their nature, have a larger run of windowpanes, potentially letting more heat out of the room. This is the beauty of particularly Victorian homes, but also one of their limitations. By installing plantation shutters in your Bay Window you are creating an added barrier against heat loss and therefore providing a more efficient level of insulation of your room. Shutters also help provide a cooler living area during the summer months by blocking out the direct sun whilst allowing airflow through the operable louvres. 

At The Shutter Shop there is full flexibility on which material you choose for your bay window shutters, both MDF and hardwood options are suitable and also many different styles can be used; full height, solid, tier on tier and café. However, due to their flexibility, Tier on tier and café style shutters are both particularly popular choices for bay windows. These styles let you have more control of the light coming in through your bay window, particularly with tier on tier where by you could have the bottom tier closed and the top tier open at any one time. 

Bay window shutters can be more difficult to measure and fit, due to uneven levels, even with modern homes and windows. We therefore recommend our full measure and fit service, whereby our expert surveyors can take full responsibility and most importantly the pressure away from you!
