But which shutters style is best for bay windows? There are a few options to choose from and here we give you a quick overview of which type of shutters are best suited to bay windows whether you have a period property or modern home.

Cafe Style Shutters

Cafe Style Shutters are ideal for bay windows located close to busy roads or pathways. Cafe Style Shutters cover just the bottom section of the window which gives you enough privacy from passing traffic and pedestrians whilst keeping the top section of the window open to allow lots of light into the room. This style of bay window shutter is quite often paired with curtains for full coverage at night.

Tier on Tier Shutters

Tier-on-tier Shutters are similar to Cafe Style Shutters in that the bottom section of the window is covered. However, they also include another set of shutters to cover the top section. This gives you the ability to open up or cover the top and bottom section of the bay window independently. This provides you with great flexibility and the best control of light and privacy for your bay windows.

Tracked Shutters

Tracked Shutters cover the full height of the bay window but they can be folded to the side to open up each window pane fully. This style of shutter gives you the option for full light or full privacy quickly and easily. The louvres can also be split so that you can tilt the bottom or top section of the shutters independently.
