Discover how bay window shutters will make the most of your living space.

Bay window shutters are a prominent feature and a well establish part of many UK homes. You can now make the most of the space in your bay, if your home has one. Bay window shutters give you more room, to do the things you love.

Bay windows are designed to catch the sunlight, and window shutters let you make the most of that light, throughout the day. There is nothing quite like the beauty of bay windows and bay window shutters will follow the natural lines of your window, leaving your bay looking even more incredible.

Whether using a special bay frame, or individual ones on each part of the window, shutters can help make the most of your bay.Bay window shutters are fitted to the window, leaving more space in the bay itself. They look just as stunning from the road, providing great kerb appeal.

  • Add value to your home
  • More privacy
  • Improve insulation
  • Save space

Tilt rod

You can also choose whether to include a tilt rod to open your louvres for a more classic look, or opt for a hidden tilt rod for a more contemporary, sleeker look.

We are confident you’ll fall in love with made-to-measure full height shutters, crafted with care, just for you. Book a no obligation appointment with your friendly local Shuttercraft today.

Integrated room darkening blind

You can include a fitted room darkening blind which sits behind the shutter in its own channel. It can make your bedroom as dark as possible, whatever the time of day, or help block light bleed in home cinemas.

Mid-rail

A mid-rail also allows you to tilt separate sections of the shutter, controlling the light as you desire. For example, you can close the lower section, providing privacy from passers-by, while the top section remains open allowing natural light to flood in.

FAQs about bay window shutters

It is rare that shutters are fitted to the windows themselves, whether wood, uPVC or aluminium, but there are a number of options that you may wish to consider.

As every window is different, it would depend on the recess surrounding the window as to the different options you would have.

Shutter installation can be carried out both inside and outside a window recess, but it will depend on the bay itself as to which possibilities are open to you.
Knowing how best to measure for shutters is often a tricky skill to master.

As well as measuring the width and height, remembering tolerances, getting the angles right, and understanding how shutters will sit comes in to play when measuring a bay window.

Without training and practice, this can be incredibly tricky, and could result in you getting shutters that do not fit your space, leaving you out of pocket.

To save the time and money potentially wasted doing it yourself, we would recommend our survey and fit service, which will give you the best solution for your home every time.
Shuttercraft experts have received extensive training on bay windows, providing them with the knowledge required for trickier shaped openings such as bays.
Window shutters are relatively low maintenance so, if they are looked after they can serve you well for over ten years and more.

The length of time that your shutters will last will also depend on factors such as surrounding environment, volume of usage, and material used in the manufacturing process.

Our robust and hard-wearing ranges are designed for durability, but not indestructible.

Use them with care, keep them well maintained, and you can enjoy the light provided by your shutters for years to come.
All our shutters are made-to-measure, so there are many frame styles to consider which can complement the bay window shutter.

Alongside a broad range of materials, there are also numerous colours, optional extras and installation methods which means that your choices are almost endless.

The size of bay is also no issue, as our products are made just for you, so you won’t have to worry about them fitting – even in the biggest of bays.
Primarily, the reason to have shutters fitted to a bay window is to maximise the light levels in your living space.

However, there are also many other benefits such as providing privacy, increasing kerb appeal and adding a degree of insulation, keeping the home cool in warmer months, or warmer when it feels colder outside.

The added benefit of bay window shutters over other solutions (such as curtains) is that they do not need a track or rail, keeping the action smooth, and the operation easy.
As all shapes and sizes of bays are different, it is important to have exact measurements taken so that the cost will be exact too.

Although we can provide approximate costs based on rough measurements and a picture, the best way to know how much it would cost for bay window shutters would be to book a FREE survey with Shuttercraft today to get a detailed technical survey so we can give you an accurate and competitive quote.
