Bay Window with Plantation Shutters: Style and Design Choices
When you order your shutters through us, we provide you a surprising amount of stylistic options and choices to make. Our shutters are custom made to order, so the possibilities are incredible.
Here’s a brief description of just some of the possibilities, but we strongly urge you to reach out to us for more information if you have a different configuration or if you just have some questions that we can answer.
Shutters for curved bay windows: We’ve worked extensively on uniquely shaped windows including triangle windows, circular ones, and many other forms. We can suggest the best plan of attack for any type of window, and the high-tier manufacturers we work with will be able to put it together to match your specs. With curved bay windows, they can be some very minor limitations, but there are options on how to work around them so that you’ll be just as thrilled with the end result and you’ll love your unique bay windows even more.
Full-height shutters: These are popular for bay windows, especially when you have wider bay windows in particular. With taller windows, you may want to opt for one of the other styles we’re going to be looking at. We can go over all of the options with you, we can lay out the pros and cons, and we can help you make an informed decision to fit your lifestyle and how you choose to enjoy your home.
Café style: These are best for bay windows that face the street and have cars and foot traffic going by. They can help to block some of the noise when you want to have your windows open, without blocking out the fresh air or daylight.
Tier-on-tier shutters: This style is similar to full-height except there’s a division among the panels that give you the ability to control the top half and the bottom half of the shutters independent from one another. You can have the top open for extra light and air while keeping the bottom half closed for privacy. It’s a good middle ground if you aren’t exactly sure which style you want. It gives you the best of all worlds.
Café style, tier-on-tier, and full-height shutters can all be installed to fit box bay windows or three-section bay windows. Whichever style you’ve got, we have shutters that will be absolutely perfect for it.
How Much Do Plantation Shutters for a Bay Window Cost?
Determining the cost of plantation shutters for bay windows depends on a number of factors. In a typical home, the costs for installing our shutters in a bay window is the same as installing them in any other window. There’s no “bay window tax” that makes it more expensive or anything like that.
The first thing to consider is the overall size of the windows, how many square meters are you looking to cover?
What shape are the windows? Unique shapes can add some extra labour to the process, not to mention that they’re more complex to manufacture. Do you want hardwood with a visible grain or something that’s been coated in one of our countless colors and styles? The finish you choose will impact the final price.
Finally, the last thing to keep in mind is whether you want to have us send somebody to install them once you’re ready, or if you want to install these shutters yourself.
We’re able to deliver higher quality shutters at better prices than other outlets because we work directly with incredible manufacturers and have forged strong relationships with them. Also, we have a team of local installers who put great pride into their work. This creates the perfect opportunity for you to fall in love with your home all over again, or maybe for the first time?
