What are recess-fitted conservatory blinds?

Recessed or recess-fitted blinds normally refers to blinds fitted between the glazing beads of a window, more or less right up to the glass, leaving the window frames entirely visible.

It also refers to roof blinds that are fitted between the rafters of a conservatory roof (normally timber rafters, but this is also possible with deep beamed UPVC and aluminium conservatories).

Recessed Conservatory Blinds

Whilst it is technically possible to recess-fit virtually any pleated blind, if the recess is deep enough and relatively flat, most conservatories do not provide such an easy fit nowadays.

View images and video clips that show how neat recess fitted window blinds can be.

For most modern conservatories we recommend a purpose-designed conservatory blinds range (in other words a range of blinds that was always intended for recess-fitting) with rails that can accommodate awkward shaped glazing beads (as in almost all modern UPVC conservatories).
