Bay Windows: What’s the Treatment?

A great way to brighten up a room, bay windows are a floorplan highlight seen in many of today’s new home designs. As an option in the owner’s suite in the Davenport at Cypress Trails at Nocatee and in the Jensen at Vitalia at Tradition, bay windows are an in-demand detail that enhances the room’s design qualities while adding more space to stretch out.

The odd shape of a bay window area can be intimidating when it comes to interior design and window treatments but it happens to be quite the opposite! A popular approach to dressing a bay window is adding treatments outside the bay regarding it as a single space. Hanging curtains outside the bay frames the decorative window niche and the view on the horizon but when closed, creates a cozy nook.

As seen in the Davenport model home, another option is treating the window as separate sections with individual treatments mounted inside the bay. The key to this design note is establishing that each section is working in harmony with the next. With this choice, each window features its own covering creating a flexible sense of privacy varying upon the occasion. Not just options for owner’s suite, the Caladesi and Vanderbilt new homes at Vitalia at Tradition feature bay windows in the breakfast nook where these same decorating tips can be used.
