One of the most challenging and rewarding projects we have done at Village Blinds and Shutters was when one of our Design consultants arrived at a home appointment in Carickfergus to help a customer with curved bay window blinds. The customer had a stunning view of Carrickfergus Marina and the coastline beyond, and they wanted a blind solution that would allow them to enjoy it to the fullest, while also providing them with privacy and shading when needed.
How To Choose The Perfect Curved Bay Window Blinds
A curved bay window is a beautiful architectural feature that adds character and space to a room. However, it can also pose some difficulties when it comes to finding the right curved bay window blinds Not all blinds are suitable for curved windows, as they may not fit well, or they may interfere with the window’s operation.
The customer had a large curved bay window that spanned across their living room and opened to a balcony overlooking the marina. They wanted blinds that would:
- Find curved bay window blinds that would perfectly follow the shape.
- Stack tightly when fully open, so that they would not block the view or the access to the balcony
- Provide blackout and thermal insulation when closed, to keep the room comfortable and energy-efficient
- Be easy and convenient to operate, without having to manually adjust each blind individually
Motorised Cellular Blinds in Halifax Blackout Charcoal
After discussing the customer’s needs and preferences, we suggested motorised cellular blinds as the ideal solution for their curved bay window. Cellular blinds are made of pleated fabric that forms cells that trap air and provide insulation. They are also very versatile and can be custom-made to fit any window shape or size.
We measured the window carefully and made nine full-height cellular blinds to fit each section of the curved bay. We chose Halifax Blackout Charcoal as the fabric colour, which is a deep warm grey that matched well with the customer’s decor and created a stylish contrast with the light walls.
We installed the blinds using Somfy motors, The motors are also very quiet and smooth, and they can be controlled by a remote or a smartphone app. The customer can easily raise or lower all the blinds at once, or adjust each one individually, with just a touch of a button.
The Result: A Stunning Transformation with Motorised Cellular Blinds
The customer was thrilled with the final result. They said that the motorised cellular blinds had transformed their living room and made it look more modern and cosy. They also said that the blinds were very functional and practical, and that they provided excellent light control and privacy.
They especially loved how the blinds stacked tightly when fully open, leaving almost no gap between them and the window frame. This way, they could make the most of their iconic view of the marina and the coastline, and access their balcony without any hassle. They also appreciated how the blinds provided blackout and thermal insulation when closed, keeping their room dark and warm at night, or cool and shaded during the day.
Here are some photos of the project that show how amazing the motorised cellular blinds looked on their curved bay window:
