Bay windows are architectural features that add charm and character to any room. However, their unique shape and configuration present challenges when it comes to fitting blinds. At Expression Blinds, we understand these challenges and have the expertise and experience necessary to overcome them. Let’s take a look at the things that need to be considered when fitting bay window blinds and how our professional fitters tackle them.
The Challenges Of Bay Window Blinds:
Accurate Measurements for Irregular Shapes
One of the primary challenges of fitting bay window blinds is achieving precise measurements. Bay windows consist of multiple sections that extend outward, creating angles and curves. Each section may have varying dimensions, making it essential to measure each one individually. Our experienced fitters carefully measure each angle, width, and height to ensure a perfect fit. Accurate measurements are crucial to avoid gaps, uneven hanging, or blinds that do not fully cover the window.
Selecting the Right Blinds for Bay Windows
Choosing the right blinds for bay windows can be daunting. There are various types to consider, such as roller blinds, Venetian blinds, Roman blinds, and vertical blinds. Each type has its advantages and considerations when it comes to bay windows. For example, Venetian blinds provide light control, but aligning slats with angled sections can be challenging. Roman blinds offer an elegant look but require careful consideration of fabric bunching in corners. Our experts guide you in selecting the most suitable blinds that meet both functional and aesthetic requirements.
Achieving a Uniform Appearance
Creating a uniform appearance across a bay window is another challenge. Since bay windows have multiple sections, it’s important to ensure that the blinds align seamlessly and create a cohesive look. This can be challenging when dealing with blinds that have cords or chains that hang at different lengths or angles. Our professional fitters possess the expertise to ensure a consistent and visually appealing result, regardless of the viewing angle.
Controlling Sunlight and Glare
Bay windows introduce changing angles of sunlight throughout the day, resulting in varying light intensities and glare. Properly controlling light and glare requires careful positioning and adjustment of blinds. Our experienced fitters skillfully determine the optimal placement of blinds to manage light levels while preserving privacy. By addressing the unique sunlight angles of bay windows, we ensure that your space remains comfortable and well-lit throughout the day.
Addressing Size and Weight Considerations
Fitting bay window blinds can pose challenges due to the size and weight of the blinds. Larger bay windows may require wider blinds, which can be heavier and more challenging to handle during installation. To overcome this, we use appropriate mounting brackets and support mechanisms to securely install the blinds. We also consider the durability of materials and fabrics chosen for the blinds, ensuring they can withstand exposure to direct sunlight and potential temperature fluctuations.
