If you are looking for curtains for bay windows, you have come to the right place. If you think that bay windows absolutely need curtains that are tailored just for them, then you'll probably spend a lot of money dressing your bay window. Instead, think outside the box and adapt common curtain styles to your bay window. You'll save a lot of time and money by doing so. Also, some simple valances for bay windows are a great choice.
You’re looking too hard. The same drapery that you’d put on any other window you can also put on a bay window.
And here’s the trick - an elbow bracket. Elbow brackets are pliable brackets that you can twist to accommodate the angle between your walls. They connect decorative curtain poles. Once connected, you have a custom decorative pole system that fits a bay window perfectly.
All that there is left to find are curtains. Rod pocket curtains will not work, but any curtains that are installed onto curtain rings will work beautifully. Curtain rings allow you to “skip” over the elbow bracket flawlessly. Or, as in the photo on the right, you can choose to just keep the curtain rings on one decorative pole only. Either way, this is the easiest and most budget-friendly way to dress a bay window.
Elbow brackets can be bought for about $40 to $80 each at many online as well as local drapery hardware retailers. Most are part of a collection, so you can also match them with the drapery poles and end finials.
