Concealing blinds is vital for those looking for a seamless, clean finish to their home. With thought by the architect or during construction works, blinds can appear like magic from above doors, windows and below skylights. Otherwise, retrospectively fitting surface-mounted blinds and tracks can ruin planned eyelines.
It is the difference between having an attention to detail versus compromise with regrets.
We are recommended suppliers of the Blindspace® system in the Kent, Sussex, Surrey and London areas. They are an innovative and patented solution for concealing blinds and recessing curtain tracks. Blindspace is sold through blind companies to ensure that the boxes are correctly specified for the blinds and curtain tracks. Builders do not have the in-depth knowledge of blind systems to get the best results. We can guide you through the whole process. Our tips and expertise can help elevate your build to the next level.
Cavity boxes are a growing trend. Rather than the window covering being an afterthought, consideration is given earlier especially when:
The Blindspace cavity boxes are a cleverly designed pocket with a detachable cover flap for easy maintenance – this reduces the gap from where the blind appears to be as small as possible.
They are designed to be included at architect or interior designer drawing stage to ensure that the space below lintels and steels can be found.
If building work has already started, then we can work with the builder to find space to fit them.
Some standard sizes are stocked in the UK, with the bespoke sizes made to measure in Sweden.
Window and door roller blinds and pleated blinds. Powered by Somfy motors and operated by remote control or automated systems like Loxone. Hide a single or two (translucent and blackout) blind at the opening.
Curtain tracks. Wave headed curtains across bifold doors can look amazing, except for the ugly tracks on your ceiling. Hide the mechanics away – both the track and motor – into a cavity. The curtain will just glide across with the smallest of gaps.
Skylight Blinds. Don’t compromise your roof glazing with cords and surface-mounted blinds. Plan ahead for the blind to appear from a four-sided slot and retract neatly back.
Above windows and doors, around triangular and trapezium shaped gable ends, in skylights. The space can be found in ceilings and walls.
At architect stage or before first fix. Future-proof your build – prepare now and decide the details of the blinds later.
Cavity recesses can be made by a carpenter but there are a number of problems which we have experienced with this approach:
We understand that build projects are difficult to finance and budget for. We offer staggered payments to spread the cost, but make sure that there are no regrets, or anything is overlooked.Book Appointment
