MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR LIVING SPACE ALL YEAR ROUND
Recommended by Weru, the team at Specialist Blinds have over 25 years of experience creating stunning, made to measure blinds that compliment your Orangery, Conservatory, Roof Lantern, Gable & Bi-folding doors.
All of our blinds are designed to have the neatest fit which will transform your glass extension into a comfortable living space, and make it usable all year round.
LANTERN ROOF BLINDS
Lantern roof blinds are an excellent way to control the temperature in a room, as well as reduce glare and protect your furniture from UV.
There are two main ways to fit lantern roof blinds: directly against the glass using shaped roof blinds, or across the bottom of the lantern using horizontal blinds. Both come with their own advantages, so it comes down to personal preference, and the layout of your roof lantern.
BLINDS FOR BIFOLD DOORS
Many people chose to fit blinds for bifold doors, they increase the shade and privacy of the room while still keeping the flexibility of being able to completely fold the doors back.
The most popular types of blinds for bifold doors are Duette®, Pleated, Roller and Pinoleum blinds. We recommend blinds for bifold doors which are recessed into the door frame so that they’re not in the way of locks and handles, Perfect Fit blind frames aren’t recommended because the frame will often cause obstruction issues. Our blinds can be used with a wide variety of folding doors, including doors with timber, aluminium or UPVC frames as well as slimline folding doors.
SLIDING DOOR BLINDS
We are able to fit blinds to sliding doors in a conservatory so that they don’t interfere with the operation of the doors, while still looking like a neat and natural part of the room.
If your conservatory has standard sliding patio doors, where the moving door slides closely across the face of the fixed door, then you have two main options for how you can use blinds: a recessed blind fitted to the moving door, with free-hanging a blind fitted to the fixed doors, so that the only the moving doors slides behind them; or a free-hanging blind fitted above both parts of the door, so that the doors are able to slide freely behind the blinds.
We are delighted to be able to offer the UK’s market-leading gable end blinds that can be completely retracted, leaving no cords, wires or fabric over the glass, whatever the shape.
Our pureaspect™ gable blinds are able to cover a wide range of gable shapes, and are even able to extend down below the triangular shape to cover more of the glass.
Vision Blinds are similar to a roller blind, except with a fabric that alternates between opaque and semitransparent. With the translucent fabric aligned, daylight is softened and glare is reduced – allowing you to use your room in comfort, while still keeping the room bright and giving you a partial garden view through the fabric.
Sliding the fabric into a closed opaque position gives a dim-out effect, dramatically increasing privacy – ideal for using later into the night.
