Bay window curtain pelmets

We make and install bay window curtain pelmets (find out if you are in our fitting area) to fit almost any kind of bay window shape. Take a look at some of the ones we have done just below. Discover lots of ideas to give you inspiration for your own bay window.

We will give you all the  "tips and advice" on how to get one to fit your bay window perfectly. These really  are great alternatives to a bay window curtain pole. Far superior in my opinion. Both in looks and function :-)

Square bay window pelmet with returns

This square bay window is dressed using a silk fabric with contrast borders. It is in an 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. Means this large window treatment works well with the rest of the room.

Splay bay window pelmet

These 3 sided splay bay window pelmets really finish the look of these kind of Victorian bay windows. 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. These 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 plaster cornice at the top. Occasionally you need to allow for bits of window frame or wall features.

There is always something waiting to catch you out :-)
