Radiused bay window treatment
December 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Would like to have theater style curtain drop down to cover window for privacy and to protect the furniture, flooring, etc. for southern exposure. Previous owner had curtains (see in photo-still using during construction). Curtains bunched up covering the casement windows at the sides. I have room on the interior to build a valance (?) to hide curtain when retracted. Unable to locate any pictures of this idea. Who could make such a curtain?

Can you take a photo from inside?

Will post additional pictures in a few minutes. Open to any ideas that work with radius and don't block side casement windows.

Here are some ideas http://www.houzz.com/bay-window-treatment-ideas You will have to determine what works with your casement windows. You may want to call a window treatment company to come out and look and get prices for top down/bottom up shade for the individual windows. too.

the window goes to the floor, so if you a put a big rod across the whole space you will lose all of that floor space. Is that Ok? It looks like about 8' wide x 4' deep overall.

I think you could do a very large curved rod installed on the center widow ( in the window itself ) with a soft fabric roman shade with panels on the sides that either are the same or even perhaps pull to the outside frame. If you use complimentary fabrics instead of all the same it would be interesting and also tone down the extreme width of the window as a whole. It would depend on what you have to work with to install on at the sides or ceiling. I think a "theater" style curtain is not necessarily needed.

the main thing I am saying is that you can do a single rod to include all 3 window and have it pull to sides, not drop from top. You will need to have it custom done probably.

How about a series of Roman Blinds? Each would cover a section two panes wide. I like ones that come up from the bottom for the maximum light and privacy control.

Sheer drapery on a traverse rod would not take up too much space if the fabric is a light weight.

We would like to maintain the radius shape if possible. The main window is approx. 10 feet. Side casements are approx 18 inches with frames. As I noted initially the previous owner had the curtains that pulled to sides on a rod. The curtains bunched up and hid the nice casements. The ceiling is 16 inches above the window in the bay area.
