What do you do when you have an oddly shaped set of apex windows in your living room; and need to find the right blinds to fit?
This was a problem one of our customers in Staffordshire had earlier this year; she had an apex window. This window is not unlike something you would find in a Gable-End conservatory. But it featured within her living room area. Other blind companies told the customer that they could not cover the window; as blinds simply could not fit into this type of window.
Most window blinds companies cannot provide apex window blinds; and only fit standard squares or rectangles. This is because, square and rectangular glazing are the most common. For situations like this you need to look further afield; just as this customer did when they found us.
Although we don’t usually fit house blinds on their own; we were able to take this job thanks to the unusual shaped window which allowed us to apply our expertise for conservatory blinds to this situation. As you can see from the above photo, we neatly fitted our apex window blinds into the space – even the triangular window. After we fitted the blinds, the customer sent in this wonderful review into our website, saying how happy she is with her blinds:
“We had blinds fitted for our apex Windows. We were initially unsure of where or who to go to for advice (architects don’t tell you about this problem when choosing your extension!). We hadn’t thought about conservatory blinds for a living room.We could not be more pleased, they are one of the best purchases for our extension – exactly what was required. I feel so pleased that if anyone wishes to see ‘in place’, we would be happy to show them.Excellent professional service, highly recommended. And no, I don’t know anybody in the company!”
To cover the apex window, we used our pureaspect™ Gable Blinds, which not only cover the shaped part of the window but also extend down to cover rectangular shape beneath it. We then installed three matching window blinds for the rest of the glazing. All of the blinds used Duette® gable fabric in the dark shade of ‘Slate’, one of the Montana rage of Duette® fabrics.
The darker shade of the Slate fabric means that it will be more efficient at keeping out both heat and UV light, making the room more comfortable during the sunnier days, while the honeycomb construction of the Duette® fabrics means it will also improve insulation when the weather gets colder.
