Louvolite roller blinds for bay windows are the perfect solution to add privacy and sun shading to windows with different sizes and shapes of pane.
Bay windows are a popular feature of new homes and period properties alike, helping to make rooms feel bigger and brighter by extending the window outwards and letting in more light.
However, when a bay window combines a large main picture window with narrow side panes, the resulting shape can be difficult to cover with one roller blind or a single span of curtain rail.
In this guide, we'll look at the best way to install roller blinds for bay windows, as well as some of the Louvolite systems that can help you get the best from your blinds.
The first trick is simple: get individual roller blinds for bay windows of different sizes.
It's likely that the panes of glass in your bay window are all the same height, but very different widths, especially on a box bay window with narrow side panes.
You can order Louvolite roller blinds for bay windows in each bespoke width you need to perfectly cover the glass, allowing each window to have its own blind, and avoiding the complication of trying to do everything with a single roller blind.
To achieve an even more harmonious aesthetic, choose Louvolite Perfect Fit frames for your bay window blinds.
Perfect Fit is a system that allows your blinds to fit even more snugly into the window, giving a consistent look across the multiple panes of a large bay window.
No drilling or screwing is required, saving you the challenge of screwing multiple framing systems into your bay window frame.
Louvolite One Touch turns your manual roller blinds into automatic blinds for your bay window - and can operate all of them in sync.
Use the dedicated remote control, smartphone control app or smart speaker voice command to open and close the blinds across your bay window using a rechargeable electric motor.
Alternatively, adjust one blind independently of the rest, to shut out the glare of the sun depending on its position in the sky.
Roller Blind Design Tips
Here are some top design tips when choosing roller blinds for bay windows:
• Choose a classic print (e.g. Lomond tartan) for period properties
• Choose a solid colour (e.g. stone or slate) for contemporary homes
• Choose sheer or blackout fabrics for different levels of light control
