A modern feature which is gaining popularity and increasing in demand is the ability to conceal blinds when they are retracted, giving a minimalist, contemporary and clean look to windows, doors and skylights. Architects and interior designers are offering this option to blend in with building designs and enhance a luxurious finish.
The motorised blinds drop from a narrow slot in the ceiling or recess which also hides electrical connections for operation and automation. They are completely hidden from view when raised, giving a clear view from the window and remove the blinds from intruding on openings. These state-of-the-art solutions are becoming the standard for window treatments in smart homes and offices.
Advantages to Concealing Blinds
The benefits for this solution as well as the aesthetic appeal is that although they should be fitted ideally during the construction process, they can also be fitted retrospectively. Tensioned blinds for skylights and rooflights can also utilise this system with side channels and when not in use only a thin groove is visible rather than an extruded box and only the fabric is visible when deployed. There is access for easy repair, maintenance and replacement and the accumulation of dust is substantially reduced.
Where Can Concealed Blinds be Fitted?
The most frequent request for these systems are in modern, contemporary residential and commercial properties with stunning views and conceptualised by world-renowned architects and interior designers. They are exquisitely suited to elegant floor-to-ceiling windows similar to those we fitted in One Tower Bridge and the Manhattan Loft Gardens. They are also a fantastic solution for large roof windows and skylights.
For the best result, concealed blinds should be a consideration at an early stage of the project and fitted during the construction phase. This will also facilitate the installation of the electric operation systems, including building control units.
