In 1894 the Building Act changed the regulations, so that windows no longer had to be flush with the exterior wall. This enabled windows to stand proud from the facade. The late Victorian and Edwardian period took advantage of the change in new building regulations and now presented their windows in bays. Medium and larger houses would often display double bay or bow windows.

The term bay window covers pretty much any window space that projects outward from the main walls of a building forming a bay in a room, either square or polygonal in plan. The angles most commonly used on the inside corners of the bay are 90personalized gifts for kids, 135 and 150 degrees. A bay window creates the illusion of a larger room. It also maximizes the amount of light entering a room and offers a dryer alternative to a balcony.

Though fantastic features to have in your home, bay windows require a little more thought when it comes to window treatments due their unusual shape. A simple option is to have three sets of blinds fitted- one for each window. Not only does this help modernize your bay windows if you happen to be converting an old terrace into a more contemporary dwelling but it also cuts down costs quite considerably if you choose something simple but elegant such as a roller or roman blind. Roller blinds offer a huge amount of choice for fairly little cost and can be tailored to perfectly suit the décor of your home.

Roman blinds on the other hand make highly unusual window dressings due to their ruched style and make for great talking points. For a higher spec home you may want to add some warm but sleek style in the shape of some wooden slat Venetian blinds. Wood is very much the material of the moment and can lend an expensive air to your décor when used well.

Wooden Venetians are especially helpful if your window is south facing as they really help to control the amount of light allowed into rooms through the handy louver system handle that can be angled any way you choose. When fully shut wood blinds offer complete block out from the sun and will therefore keep your room cool during the hot summer months.

If your home is more traditional in its style, you will probably want curtains for your bay window. This requires a little more thought. One option is to put up three separate curtain poles and have a curtain for each window. You could then draw back each curtain to the side with tiebacks for an interesting asymmetrical finish.

But if you want to stick to the tried and tested method of two regular curtains that meet in the middle, you will need a specialist bay window curtain pole. These little lengths of genius allow you to tailor them perfectly to your window and mean that you can run a curtain right the way around the bay. You will generally find that tab top curtains are the simplest to hang in a bay window due to their simple loop hung construction.
