Bow window installation provides one of the best ways to add elegance and style to your home's exterior and create a lovely alcove inside. They let in plenty of natural light and provide a massive view of the outside, which can make the room appear larger, brighter, and more refined, both day and night, especially if you choose the right window treatment.
Bow windows are designed with four or five angled openings. They are very beautiful, but can offer little privacy and let in too much sunlight that may make the interior uncomfortable and damage your furniture, art, and other valuables. Fortunately, there are a few window treatment options that will maximize the enjoyment of your new bow window installation and add beauty to your space, making your windows a focal point for your room.
Control light and privacy with bow windows
One of the biggest reasons why homeowners consider bow window installations is because they let in an abundance of light. But this can be affected to different extents depending on the window treatment used, from sheers to heavy drapery. If you want privacy without installing conventional window treatments, you should consider outfitting the glass with privacy window film. The film is temporary and easy to apply with soapy water, so you can change it when your decorating tastes change. You can decorate the window with a coloured valance or panels installed on the outside of your windows.
Shutters are a great alternative to film. They can be adjusted to maximize light penetration during the day, and closed when you need privacy.
With any of these window treatment options, you can complete the look of your bow window installation to optimize the lighting, privacy, and design of your interior space.
