    Questions on our bay window curtains?

    See answers to our most frequently asked questions on bay window curtains. If you have a question about our service or your appointment, see our FAQs here.

    Can you fit curtains around my bay window?

    Yes. If you choose one of our stylish curtain poles or tracks specially designed for bay windows, your local advisor will fit it for you. They’ll also professionally measure and fit your bay window curtains.

    How do I measure my bay window for curtains?

    At Hillarys, you don't need to worry about measuring your bay window, as this is all part of our made-to-measure service. During your in-home appointment, your advisor will take all the measurements needed to fit your bay window curtains perfectly, first time. Measuring and fitting are included in the price.

    How do I hang curtains in a bay window?

    There are lots of factors to consider:

    • Would you prefer a curtain pole to coordinate with your curtain fabric and other room accessories, or a discreet curtain track? 
    • What sort of header would you like? The curtain header is the top piece of the curtain that attaches to the curtain pole or track and your choice affects the overall look of your curtains. For example, do you prefer a modern or traditional feel? Relaxed or tailored? Your advisor will be able to explain the differences. Curtains hung from a curtain pole will be suspended at about  the same level or just below it, whereas curtains fitted to a track will cover the track itself.
    • What’s the right height for your curtain pole or track? If you want your window to look taller and grander than it really is, you could position your pole or track as close to the ceiling as possible and allow your curtains to hang to the floor. However, a recessed bay window with a window sill may suit a shorter length curtain.

    Your local advisor will give you professional advice for your bay window on all these factors and more during your in-home appointment.

    How do I fit a bay window curtain track?

    Your local advisor will professionally fit your bay window curtain track, so you can be sure that your new bay window curtains will fit perfectly, first time. All measuring and fitting are included in the price, as part of our in-home service.

    What curtains are best for bay windows?

    Curtains are a perfect choice for bay windows, fitting the shape perfectly and becoming an elegant focal point. The choice of curtain fabric is very much a personal one depending on the look you want for your room, and the problem your window dressing is trying to solve. Our elegant Voile curtains offer daytime privacy for example; team them with blinds or curtains for a day-to-evening look.

    You can layer curtains over blinds for added privacy, flexible light control and to reduce heat loss through your windows. You can also choose a blackout or thermal lining for your curtains for a cosier finish. Read more ideas on how to dress your bay windows with curtains.

    Do bay window curtains keep heat in?

    Windows can account for up to 18% of the heat loss in your home, but curtains are a great insulator and can help to reduce this. To keep as much heat as possible in your room, choose curtains with a blackout or thermal lining - it'll help reduce heat loss by 14% to keep your home cosier. In summer, they can also help keep a room cooler by reducing the amount of heat that enters through your windows. A blackout lining will also help block the light so you can create a dark environment when you need it. Choose naturally thicker curtain fabrics like velvet or layer your curtains over a made-to-measure blind to improve the thermal qualities of your curtains even further. Closing your curtains by dusk will help insulate your bay window at night and keep the space feeling cosy.
