Bay Window Ideas for Bedrooms & Living Rooms

Bay windows are fantastic and highly desired features for any home. Their large window panels protrude from an exterior wall of the house, usually made with one centre pane and two panes either side. This makes them excellent sources of natural sunlight and adds a touch of sophistication to any room whilst giving you a fantastic view of the outside.

Due to the way in which they extend outside the main walls, bay windows create an extra space inside the home which can be used for a number of purposes, such as improving the room aesthetic, creating storage space or a new area for seating. In this guide, we’ll be taking a look at some of our favourite bedroom and living room bay window styling ideas.

Bay Window Styling Ideas

Roller Blinds

If you’re looking for something sleek to enhance the clean lines of your bay window panels, bespoke roller blinds could be the perfect solution for you. Depending on the style you opt for, roller blinds can either help to gently diffuse the natural light from the window or it can totally block it out. For a softer diffused look, roller blinds in a sheer fabric work best. For  total darkness, blackout roller blinds are a more suitable option.

Available in a range of different fabrics, textures, colours and patterns, you can easily find the perfect style for your bay windows with Aspiration Blinds.


Made-to-measure shutters are a great choice for homeowners who like to have greater control over the lighting and privacy of their bay window. This is because shutters can easily be opened, closed and positioned at different angles to offer a range of different lighting and privacy options.

They are also excellent at reducing heat loss through the windows, helping to better maintain the temperature in your home and cut down on heating bills. Thanks to their hardwearing and durable properties, shutters are less likely to become damaged or warped over the years, making them incredibly long lasting.

At Aspiration Blinds, we offer a wide range of bespoke shutters to suit your taste and budget with a guarantee of 3 years. 

Roman Blinds 

Roman blinds offer a much more traditional and luxurious look, boasting a continental edge in textured fabric that not only looks great but helps to minimise heat loss from your windows. At Aspiration Blinds, all of our Roman blinds come fully lined as standard to provide extra insulation and blackout lined, making them an ideal addition to the bedroom.

Window Seat

A popular way of styling bay windows is to turn them into a small seating area or cosy reading space. To do this, simply add cushions and warm blankets to the window sill if it is deep enough, or, for those windows that have floorspace instead of a deep sill, you can find a couch, bench or two armchairs to create a mini seating area yourself. 

Extra Storage Space

A home can never have too much storage space! A great advantage of bay windows is the opportunity for more storage. Simply insert some handy drawers or cupboards into the gap beneath the window or double up your seating area as a storage space by inserting a bench that has space or drawers underneath.

This works especially well in children’s bedrooms to help store away larger toys and keep their bedrooms tidy and clutter free.
