1. Aesthetic

 Wooden blinds are a great way of covering your bay window, they are stylish, versatile and give you that shutter look at a fraction of the price. These blinds will really elevate your bay window and will give it a timeless look. You can go for a clean, white wooden blind if you’re going for a more modern interior, or a rich dark wood if you’re going for a more traditional style. Wooden blinds are also very premium looking and when you have a beautiful bay window in your home, the last thing you’d want to do is to not do it justice by covering it with a cheap blind.

2. Light control

By nature of being large, bay windows are also a big source of light, so being able to effectively control the amount of light that comes in is vital. Wooden blinds have slats that can be tilted to your desire with the twist of a cord, this allows you to precisely control the light that enters the room, perfect for when the sun rays are gleaming through your bay window in the peak of the summer. It’s easy to start thinking solely about looks and aesthetic and overlook practicality when you’re thinking about what blinds to choose for your bay window. By choosing wooden blinds you can get both practicality and style and don’t have to sacrifice one in order to achieve the other.

3. Made to measure

Wooden blinds can be made to your precise bay window size, this is vital because an ill-fitting blind can ruin a gorgeous bay window. You can have your blind measured up and fitted for you, but if you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg, then going for made to measure blinds is a brilliant option. Make My Blinds also offer handy measuring and installation guides, by measuring up and installing the blinds yourself it can save you a lot of money, and it’s not as hard as you might think it is. So, before you commit to paying for your blinds to be measured and installed, consider what other options are available.

4. Value for money

Shutters are a popular choice, and as good as they look, they are very pricey. Wooden venetian blinds can achieve the same aesthetic look as shutters but at a fraction of the price, this difference in price is exaggerated even more when covering a bay window due to the size of it. So, if you’re looking to give your bay windows a premium, stylish feel, without having to fork out a ridiculous amount of money, then wooden venetian blinds are a brilliant choice.


In conclusion, there are many benefits to choosing wooden blinds for your bay window, by choosing wooden blinds you get a great balance of practicality and light control as well as style and aesthetic. These blinds will elevate your bay window and really allow you to make the most out of it, without you having to spend a ridiculous amount of money.
