For most houses, especially those built in the Victorian era, bay windows were commonly adorned with plush curtains, in dark colours such as blues or red, on angled poles. Curtains are still a viable and popular option today, especially due to their thermal properties and the huge areas they can cover.
- Layering fabrics increases insulation, and curtains can easily be combined with more modern blinds, for extra privacy and light control, it’s all up to personal taste.
- If possible, it is better to get a re-enforced rail that is affixed to the wall, though curtains do look amazing however they can weigh a lot, especially if they cover a wide area. Though we do not sell curtain rails or poles, these can be cheaply acquired elsewhere.
- Curtains are fantastic at softening the overall look of a room, especially if they co-ordinate with the furniture or accessories.
