Cafes usually have a dim interior to make it more cozy and to provide a lot of privacy to the guests. Therefore, for your bay window, utilize warm colors such as brown, beige, cream, or other earth colors. You may want to accentuate it by using wood for the beams.

Some cafes, on the other hand, are more on the quirky or creative side. They would utilize some really unique materials that you would not find elsewhere. If this is the kind of cafe look that you are trying to achieve, avoid buying curtains that are already ready-made as that won't look unique. Choose very interesting fabrics and make designs that you won't find elsewhere.

Decorate a bay window that doesn't go to the floor?


If your bay window does not reach the floor, the best way is to utilize some small materials and decor to design it. You may want to find a good selection of small house plants as well as some nice small pots that you can line up on the ledge of your bay window. You can still use curtains, although you have to make sure it's not that long. Also, in this case, blinds or Roman blinds are much better because it makes it look more minimalistic and gives you more room for other decor.
