When thinking about updating the décor in a room with a bay or bow window design, it’s important to consider how interior decorating changes will influence the overall tone of the space. Sometimes, it is the simple things that make the biggest impact on appearance and comfort.
A mini-makeover doesn’t have to be expensive or labor intensive, either. Here are a few tips to awaken your creative energy.
#1. Accentuate & Accessorize
Using interesting patterns, colors, textures and shapes can tie your room together. Whether you want to enjoy a stunning view or enjoy the abundant natural light flowing through the glass, the following accessories will help you define the space around your bay window.
Bring in some:
- Lamps or other lighting that creates your desired mood and tone
- Pillows and throws to add warmth and visual texture
- Live plants
- Side tables for holding beverages and reading material
- Luxurious, contemporary window treatments
#2. Get Some Help with Furniture Layout
Simply rearranging the furniture in a room with a bay replacement window can help you establish the window as a focal point. There are plenty of free, or low-cost, layout design apps available to help you try out various furniture placement ideas. Many applications include a virtual tour that gives you a 360 degree view, allowing you to make certain there is plenty of walking around room.
#3. Simplify for Contemporary Styling
When showcasing a contemporary bay with clean angles and straight lines, continue that theme. Opt for hidden hardware (like European hinges) on nearby cabinets and under-the-window-seat storage. Skip the curved window treatment rod and install individual panels on each window. Dress the room sparingly and keep accessories to a minimum. Beautiful, but simple.
#4. Create a Luxurious Lounging Spot
In the bedroom, a bay replacement window provides the perfect spot for winding down after a stressful day. Splurge a bit on soft, durable fabrics and high-end foam padding for the window seat. Toss in an over-sized, goose-down pillow or two – or down alternative filler, if you prefer – and at least one bolster for back support, and you’ve created an inviting space you’ll love to spend time in watching the sun rise or set.
