Large areas of glazing in a home can seem like a massive benefit, giving you amazing views, and letting the sun lighten up a room during clear days. However they also come with their own set of drawbacks, including heat build-up and lack of privacy – in some cases having a large area of glazing can essentially mean you have a transparent wall in your home. This was the case with a recent customer of ours in Farnham, Surrey, who had a large area of glazing in his bedroom, and needed a solution that not only helped reduce heat and glare and dramatically increase privacy, but would also fit in with the modern décor of the room.
The property was a barn conversion, which meant that while it did get beautiful views of the country through their windows, the windows themselves were very large and featured a large apex shape at the top. After speaking with a member of our sales team, we recommended that they cover the area with two large pureaspect™ Gable Blinds using Duette® fabrics. Originally designed for gables in conservatories, our unique pureaspect™ system is perfect for large apex windows such as this. We have continuously improved the system, allowing us to fit blinds that not only cover the triangular shape at the top but extend down to floor level neatly; covering the entire area with just two blinds. They’ve also been designed to retract away as neatly as possible: the above photo is not actually a “before” photo, the blinds are just retracted away with minimal obstruction of the view.
The sleek and elegant design of both the pureaspect™ Gable Blinds and the Duette® fabric meant that the blinds were able to fit into the modern décor of the room, but we were able to go the extra mile and have the main components of the blinds – the blind rails and the fixings – powder coated to a colour that matched the frame of the windows. That way, the blinds look like a natural addition to the room, as if they had always been there.
The customers were so happy with their blinds that they left a review on our Checkatrade page, commenting on how happy they were with our level of service:
“Absolutely recommend these guys. Especially Aaron who went through the quote process and went through all the options available very professional and always available to answer any questions and very quick to respond .
