Thousands of houses across the UK have curved bay windows, and a common question that is asked is whether shutters can be installed on this type of window.
If you have a house that was built in the 1930s and has the hallmark curved bay windows but you’re looking to upgrade the aesthetic both inside and outside your property, shutters can indeed be installed and are, in fact, a great option.
Bay Window Shutters
Bay windows are a sought-after feature in properties because they open up a room and allow floods of natural light to stream in. They make the outside of a property look more dynamic and the inside more spacious.
The issue many homeowners have is that due to the size of bay windows, it can be hard to dress them in a way that exposes their full potential and doesn’t dull down the natural light or make the area seem smaller. In addition, the classic curved shape can be difficult to tailor to.
Bay window shutters are a fantastic option for dressing curved bay windows. They’re made bespoke to the window shape which means you don’t need to worry about making the window appear boxy.
Another benefit is that they don’t drape down the inside of the window like curtains do, meaning you can maximise the space inside the bay window.
Are Shutters Suitable for Curved Bay Windows?
One of the main reasons people don’t consider shutters for bay windows is because of the curved shape. Most high street retailers sell blinds for square and rectangular windows, meaning a lot of people with curved windows think ill-fitting roller blinds or curtains are the only options.

Benefits of Investing in Shutters
Bespoke shutters may not be the cheapest option for dressing curved bay windows, but they’re certainly one of the best. There are so many benefits to choosing shutters, with the main one being that they’re bespoke to your window. This means they will fit perfectly, leaving no awkward gaps or an unnatural, boxy-looking appearance.
Shutters for bay windows also allow you to control the level of privacy in your home without compromising on incoming light. You can ensure passers-by can’t see in by tilting the shutters, but unless you close them completely, plenty of light will still stream in.
On top of this, shutters complement almost any aesthetic, so unlike curtains or other types of blinds, you don’t need to worry about buying new ones should you choose to re-decorate.
The final major benefit of shutters for curved bay windows is that they allow you to retain the open feel and usability of the space. They don’t make the window area look dark or cramped like curtains, allowing you to open up the space and continue to use the area to its full potential.
