So, let's dive in and explore how you can transform your bay window into a stunning focal point.

The first task in getting a gorgeous bay window is to look at the types of treatments that you will use. This refers to the items you will hang at the windows to keep out the dark and cold in the night and let in the light and sun in during the day. Most folks mind goes straight to curtains when they think of window treatments for bays, but that is not the only option to consider. In fact, blinds in roller or Venetian varieties can look very smart too. Although, if you want the ultimate on-trend look go for treatments like the S:CRAFT plantation shutters that are now available. A fashion that will find often find in the most stylish houses of the moment, and one that can really set off the look of you bay window wonderfully. 

One of the major benefits of having a bay window is that creates the perfect nook in which to house some seating. There are two main choices for this. The first is built-in seating, something that you can use your windowsill for if it is large and sturdy enough. The other option is to get a built-in seating unit constructed. The second option is to use the space of the bay to house your favourite chairs or sofa. This can work especially well because such a space provides excellent light for reading or hobby work, as well as maximising the space in the room. 

While a bay window will provide a good amount of light, you often see them dressed with lamps or chandelier to enhance this effect. The latter in particular, if made from cut glass or crystal will reflect the light during the day and light up the recess in the evening time, as well as being an attractive feature in itself.

Last, of all, some folks choose to use their bay windows for seating that is combined with storage. Traditionally this has been built into benches under the window. However, there are many units now on the market that are free standing and will fit well into a bay space, as well as the option of upcycling an older piece of furniture suitable for the job. Then all you need to do is place some cushions on top, and they will serve the dual purpose of storage and seating, as well as being an attractive addition to your bay window area.
