What blinds would suit a bay window?

Blinds with a slim head rail suit bay windows to maximise window coverage. Venetian, pleated, and roman blinds would be our recommendation. The issue with blinds fitted at bay windows are the gaps between blinds when butting them up to each other. We recommend using blinds where the main part is as wide as the headrail. These would include 25mm Venetians, Pleated and Roman blinds.
