Bay window shutters
Bay window shutters blend into the window design, allowing you to keep the perfect lines of the bay, keeping the area clean and crisp whilst maintaining the special aesthetics.
Window shutters are 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 Victorian homes, but also one of their limitations. By installing plantation shutters 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. Our shutters are made to measure and they can fit any type of window or shape. This is why having a professional surveyor to measure your windows is an important factor when choosing where to buy your shutters from. With over 30 years experience in the field, the Shutter Shop is the perfect partner for you!
Plantation shutters blend into the window design, much better than traditional fittings like curtains, thus allowing you to keep the perfect lines of the bay.

History of Bay Windows
If your home is equipped with bay windows, you have a piece of British architectural history! Their use goes back to the early English Renaissance period and was often associated to the great country manor houses. In today’s world we certainly cannot afford the grandeur of those times, but the purpose of bay windows remains the same: to allow more light into the room. If you compare bay windows to a window flush to the wall line, you can tell how much more surface is exposed to the light.
Unfortunately, the main drawback is that a larger window surface often means more insulating problems. Bay windows shutters are not only aesthetically very pleasing, but they also contribute to a much higher degree of insulation.
Although bay windows are often recognised as a quintessentially British design, in modern architecture they were extensively used by the so called Chicago School, and by one of its most prominent exponents, William Le Baron Jenny, also known as the father of the American skyscraper. One if his main concerns was the quantity of lights that could enter a building, at a time when glass and steel were not the norm in skyscraper construction.
The Manhattan Building in Chicago is one of the most prominent examples of the use of bay windows in a tall building.
