Splay bay pelmet and curtains installation
This short video shows you a project where I fitted 2 bay window treatments. That is curtains and pelmets. You can see the custom made hardware needed to hang everything from.
Square bay window curtain pelmet with returns
This square bay window is dressed using a silk fabric with contrast borders on the bottom edge. This understated colour and gives a "classic" look to the window.
Also this bay pelmet returns out of the bay on each side. This allows the curtains to hang outside of the bay when open. So clearing more of the window for maximum light.
Being such a large bay window going with a bolder fabric, it could have ended up totally dominating the room. So going with simple straight lines and a subtle colour fabric. Means this large window treatment works well with the rest of the room.

Splay bay window pelmet
This 3 sided splay bay window pelmet really finishes the look of this kind of Victorian bay window. Simple clean lines with no trims or borders.
The benefit of using pelmets other than the "look" is that you can hide away the curtain hardware. This window has a super smooth metal curtain track fitted. the track is also overlapping in the middle. So no gap when the curtains are closed.
Finally the curtains are tied back to allow more clearance of the glass area for more light.
Shaped splay bay with contrast border
Again simple clean lines but with a little shape to the ends to add a little interest. Also with the padded contrast border it really add to the overall look.
The curtains have been made in four rather than one large pair. The benefit to this is that the spaces between the windows are covered in fabric. Also the pelmet doesn't have to return even more past each side of the window to accommodate a wider pair of curtains.
Curved bay window pelmets
Curved bay window curtain pelmets can be tricky to make well. The fabric wants to ripple on the curve. So extra care has to be taken when making.
This style of bay pelmet is best made in one complete piece. That is the face and top board are fixed together and then covered in fabric. unlike the straight sided bays. Those are made in two parts. The face section and the top board. These are then connected using hook and loop tape.
Plain shaped bay window curtain pelmets
Another simple but effective design for a bay window curtain pelmets. Also note how we have made cut outs to allow the picture rail to pass through the pelmet returns.
Some times you have to allow for obstructions when measuring and making bay pelmets. As well as picture rails. You need to some times allow for a plaster cornice around the top of the room. Sometimes you will need to allow for bits of window frame trim or wall features.
There is always something waiting to catch you out :-)
