Choices are Available When Choosing Bay Window Coverings

Silk panels are classic window treatments that never go out of style. When used for bay windows, they can help accentuate the space the windows create. They’re also great for framing the light and the view outside the windows. While valances are excellent if you’re looking for a clean line because they follow the shape of the window and bring out the form of bay windows. Roman shades and wood blinds might be a good choice if you want to have more control with the amount of light coming into a room. If you are not sure what to choose for your bay windows, call in the design professionals from Gallery of Shades at 480-643-0014.

Differences Between Horizontal Blinds and Vertical Blinds

The strength of horizontal blinds are that they roll up from the bottom. This is great because depending on the angle of the sun you are able to cover the top of the window without covering the bottom. This helps block out the most heat and sunlight while still letting in light. Vertical blinds are ideal for sliding glass doors or tall windows, because they extend from the floor to the top of the door or near the ceiling if you want. You can open them all the way or just as much as you need. There overlap design makes them excellent at shading the intense sun also.
