Hello Friends, “happy Monday I hope you had a beautiful weekend” Friends are you ready to dress those windows? I am asked on a regular basis how to style my windows? And trust me it’s a good question because dressing or styling a window requires a careful plan.
First you start with an overview of style possibilities’ and then think about color and design. Functional matters too like privacy and light control are important. Some windows are easy to handle while others are a real challenge. But for each there is variety of pleasing and practical choices to choose from. Friends are you ready to check out some cool window covering in different style for your window woes? Today were going to focus on two problem style windows, picture window and bay windows without further ado lets get to it.

Picture Windows-Picture window- is used in a combination with sliding or a casement window, picture windows (also called fixed glass windows) let in plenty of light and frames the view.
I love this example above with of a picture window because along with the panels it exposed wood grain blinds and natural woven shades as well. Beautiful!
Wow what a beautiful window who would want to cover it? I love how this large picture window is framed so beautifully with the long pleated draperies so to show off the beauty of this window. Just lovely!
How beautiful another framed picture window.
This window could easily be a patio door and it shows how framing the window with the panels shows off the elegance of the window.

Bay Windows- Bay or bow window- a bay is a recessed window angled sections; a bow has window sets and gentle curve. If the view is great and privacy isn’t an issue this is a window you can very well leave uncovered. But if that is not an option here are some examples below.
The example above gives you an idea how to dress a bay window. The example above also show a clever idea of a window seat that can be something else you can do with the space. Also
This is so cute I just love the window seat and the panels are short enough not to touch the seat. This is a perfect window to just use toppers also if you didn't want to cover the view.
Side Pleat Valance in Bay Window- this is an example of not really covering the window see the great view but the option is still there to put draperies on the outsides of the bay window.
I love how this bay window shows the draperies and the beautiful shades.
I love how this bay window is just being framed by beautiful draperies. Nice!

Hi there Shinay! The window treatments for the bay windows are so cute! I have a bay window in my room, and my Dad has a perfectly fit bench made for it. It definitely is my most favorite spot in our home. It’s where I read my books and sit during rainy days. It just gives me this mellow feeling when I look at the view outside. Great photos and hope to see more!

The "Side Pleat Valance in Bay Window" looks so nice! The room looks wider and the ambiance is a lot brighter and more inviting because of the bayview windows.
