How to dress a bay window

(2 Posts)

Just bought a house with lovely big bay windows. I would like to dress the ones in the kids' bedrooms with curtains that follow the line of the bay, so that they can put toys and crap things on the large window sills. I'm also hoping that having the curtains close to the window will minimise draughts.

How do I go about doing this? Do I need a company to measure up and custom make the curtains and tracks? I think I will need to have tracks rather than curtain poles as there is no space to fix the curtain poles above the window.

Can anyone recommend a company to do this? I am in East Anglia.

It's a fairly straightforward DIY job to be honest. You can buy flexible curtain track in lots of places, e.g. Dunelm Mill. It clips onto fixing brackets you put in at intervals around the window and bends to shape.

Poles to fit into bays are pretty expensive. Depends what look you want really.
