Bow Window Treatment Ideas


Bow windows are a gorgeous addition to any home, creating dimension to a house façade and a lovely alcove indoors. However, their angles can make decorating bow windows tricky. Here are a few treatment ideas to help dress your bow windows.

  • Floor Length Shutters
    • Shutters, or privacy panels, can create a whole new mini room in your home by sectioning off the bay area into an intimate dining area or reading nook. These shutters also eliminate the need for drapes or blinds!
  • Curved Curtain Rod
    • By installing a curved rod, you can use one curtain to cover all the bow windows at once. This provides a solid, elegant look and added convenience.
  • Multiple Curtain Panels
    • Want versatility? Consider two curtain panels in different fabrics, one opaque and the other sheer. This affords you with the option of filtering bright sunlight with the sheer curtain, or blocking the light completely with the heavier curtain.
