Curtain Ideas for Bay Windows: Contemporary Sheers
Art Deco or modern contemporary, if you have a bay styled window which is an elegant sweeping curve rather than the more traditional style of bay, then you should use this as the focal point of the room. Refined, majestic and simply stunning this style of bay cries out to be noticed!
With curtain tracks and poles now made specifically to fit bay windows you don’t have the problem of having to have curtains which will only be opened back as far as the corners. This allows you to have two large curtains, the same as a standard window dressing, which can be pulled open to either side of the bay to reveal the bay in its entirety.
Full length sheer bay window curtains ooze style and sophistication, giving your room and window the ‘wow’ factor we all crave. Depending on the size of the bay you may be able to use ready made curtains, alternatively for large bays made to measure curtains are a better option. If you opt for the latter, you’ll probably find you have more choices of colours and styles and while ready made curtains come in a plethora of sizes, styles, colours and designs, with a bay this beautiful you’ll undoubtedly want it to be dressed to perfection, and rightly so – it should be the ’show stopper’ of your room.
The choice of curtain heading is a matter of personal choice, however, a standard three inch pencil pleat heading will allow sheer curtains to fall in elegant graceful pleats – for a more contemporary approach to dressing a bay window eyelet curtains are highly fashionable within the world of interior design. The eyelet are evenly spaced and allow the curtains to fall in larger wave effect pleats. Chose the curtain heading to suit the style of your interior.
Likewise, the colour of your sheer lightweight curtains should also reflect the style and décor of your home. From bright splashes of intense colour for contemporary interiors, to classical creams and whites for period homes, sheer curtains have become the modern replacement for net curtains; and while they may not be closed or drawn throughout the day in the same way as net curtains, they can be used to prevent prying eyes from seeing inside your home during daylight hours – don’t forget that once internal artificial lights are switched on sheers will become semi-transparent.
