What makes bay window curtains?

So you're looking for bay window curtains that will fit your window properly. You want them to have enough fullness but can't find anything ready made wide enough!

You're not alone as almost all ready made curtains only come at a maximum of 228cm (90 inches) wide. Nowhere wide enough to fit most bay windows. For an average width bay of around 350cm wide. You will need a pair of curtains with a width of 350cm in each curtain. So giving you double fullness.

You only have 2 real choices to cover bay windows. 

The 1st is to hang 2 pairs of "ready made curtains" side by side. Far from ideal if you are really looking to give your room a stylish look. However, it is the cheapest solution.

The 2nd is to get some "made to measure curtains" to fit your bay window perfectly.  This option is usually a fair bit more costly than ready made curtains. However, it is by far the better option if the budget will stretch to it.  Here are a few reasons that make custom made curtains the best choice.

  • You get the right width and length 
  • You get a far bigger choice of fabrics
  • You get to choose the curtain lining
  • You get to choose the heading style

Bay window curtains that fit well

So you really have no choice but to have to get some made to measure curtains. This is the only way to cover windows of this size. That is so they look well dressed, and not like a dogs dinner.

I mentioned earlier about hanging two pairs of ready made curtains on your bay window. They may look fine when pushed back off the window. However I'm sure even you will admit that they just don't look the best (that's saying it kindly) when closed. 

You just can't hide the fact that they are two pairs hanging together. They just don't sit right. There is also a good chance if they are patterned fabric. That the pattern does not run right on both pairs. I have even seen it on plain fabrics that the shade is different on each pair. 

You just don't get that pattern and shade problem with custom made bay window curtains. The fabric will all come off the same roll and dye batch.

So the only real choice you have is to "bite the bullet" and get some made to the right size. Yes it's going to cost you  more that most regular ready made curtains.

Go for made to measure bay window curtains

So the only real choice you have is to "bite the bullet" and get some made to the right size. Yes it's going to cost you  more that most regular ready made curtains.

The good news, and there is good news :-)

For parting with more of your hard earned cash. You will get a lot of extra goodies that you don't get with ready made curtains in a cellophane bag.  As I said earlier you get to choose from vastly more fabrics. You get the style and sizes you need. You also get to decide on the lining fabric, perhaps blackout.

If you plan on moving house in the next 18 months. Then don't waste money buying made to measure curtains. Buyers just won't pay  much for them as their tastes mat be different than yours.

So you will not get it back in the sale price on your home. You may also probably struggle to find a window in your new home that is exactly the same size.

Made To Measure Curtains, Make Money Sense

Now if you are staying put for the long term. As in 5 years or more then getting custom made curtains make good sense. I know that for most people, especially if they haven't bought made to measure curtains before. The cost comes as a bit of a shock :-(

However, once you start to breakdown the cost over the life of your bay window curtains. The yearly cost starts to look really reasonable. It's just like buying a good quality sofa or dining suite. Let's say you spent £ 650 on a great pair of new curtains for your bay window. Over a 10 year life span that breaks down to £ 65 per year. Which is next to nothing in real terms.

If you break it down ever further just for the fun of it. On a weekly basis it amounts to £1.25 per week.  What can you buy for that sort of money?  You would probably only change the curtains after 10 years because you were either redecorating the room. Or were simply just bored with looking at them.  

Take a look at the curtain heading styles just below. I'm sure you will find one that suits you.
