Why Choose Shutters for Your Bay Windows?Blue bay window shutters

You know it, we know it, everyone knows it: shutters are the ultimate dressing for any bay window.

Research tells us time and again that shutters for box or curved bay window add all-important kerb appeal to your home, meaning that not only do they look fantastic but they’ll add value to your property too.

Because of their size, bay windows let in lots of unfiltered light and compromise the privacy (and security) of your home. Plantation shutters for bay windows work to counteract each of these factors, making them the perfect solution. Oh, and did we mention they look great too? Yes? Well, it's always worth reiterating!

Save on Costs With DIY Bay Window Shutters

By opting for DIY shutters - as opposed to a full measure and installation service - you can save up to whopping 40%. Indeed, by opting for the DIY option, you can have that luxury look for less. Wooden shutters for bay windows can also save money in the long run. How so? Due to their robust composition, they are incredibly long lasting. Much longer lasting than other types of window dressings which need replaced every few years. As a result, you'll have your plantation shutters for years to come.

Plantation Shutters for All Bay Window Types

Shutters can be fitted to practically any bay window, regardless of style. Shutters for curved bay windows are always a great option, but they also work tremendously for both box bays and square bays. Whatever the composition of your window, there is a shutter for that.

Which Shutter Style Best Suits Bay Windows?

We’re of the opinion that you should celebrate the grandness of bay windows by covering the whole window. That means either full height or tier on tier shutters are best suited to a bay window, be that a slatted shutter or solid.

Red bay window shutters

Full height shutters for bay windows tend to require a mid rail - a horizontal rail within the structure of your shutter panel. They can be a structural requirement or a design feature, depending on the height of your windows. With a mid rail you can operate the slats on the top and bottom sections independently.

Yellow bay window shutters

Tier on tier shutters operate similarly, the difference being that you can open or close the top and bottom panels independently too. Solid panel shutters suit a more traditional look (think of Bath limestone terraced houses) and for eliminating as much light as possible (ideal for bay windows in bedrooms).
