by - Tuesday, April 11, 2017


Bae is a term that means ‘before anyone else’, and so it refers to your significant other in life, whether that be your husband, wife, boyfriend, or girlfriend. Bay, on the other hand, is a type of window that projects outward from the main part of the building. Something that is designed to produce more light and space inside. Now, we're not really saying that you will adore you bay window area as much as you do your significant other, but if you follow the guide below you are bound to love the space a heck of a lot more than you ever have! 

Treatments 
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. 

Seating 
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. 

Lighting 
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. You can find out more about how to pick the right chandelier for your space at sites like www.litecraft.co.uk

Storage 
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.
