What is the difference between concealed, hidden and invisible blinds?

Concealed blinds are blinds that have the hardware concealed in a Blindspace© box. This will help your home look stylish and modern. When the blinds are open you’ll see nothing but the beauty of the outside world, helping you strengthen your bond with nature.

Hidden blinds are blinds that have the hardware hidden in a recess. This is almost like a trough that your blinds are installed into in your ceiling, this is a good way to conceal blind if you’re on a tight budget.

Invisible blinds are the most luxurious finish you can give your windows. Blindspace® will conceal your blinds’ hardware and conceal the sides of your blinds into your window structure’s side channel. This option is perfect for making the perfect blackout blinds for your home cinema or bedroom.

It’s your choice, you can conceal, hide or make your blinds invisible. But make sure that your decision is backed up by reliable data, your needs and your style. WindowTreat’s concealed blinds specialist can help you make the right choice.

What size Blindspace® box do I need?

The size of your Blidspace® box will be determined by many different factors. Primarily fabric length, width and type will determine the size of the box you will need. There may be other factors to think about when you're looking at what size box you will need, such as rods. Speaking to WindowTreat will help you figure out exactly what you require.

Where can Blindspace® boxes be used?

Blindspace® boxes can be used on all the windows in your home, as long as they have a facade.

Regular windows – Blindspace® works beautifully to conceal blinds on your home’s windows. The standard Blindspace® box will be built into the facade of the window, making it disappear into thin air when you have the blinds open.

Bi-Fold Doors and Sliding Doors – Blindspace® is the ultimate combination and a great choice for shading your bi-fold doors and sliding doors. With sliding doors, the Blindspace® box would be fitted into the ceiling, leaving a gap big enough for the blinds to be shut, whilst the bi-fold doors are open. This can be for both internal and external blinds. With sliding doors, you can install the Blindspace® boxes closer to the doors. Again, both internally and externally.

Roof Lanterns and Skylights – Blindspace® boxes conceal your roof lantern blinds and skylight blinds, making them disappear and allowing a full view of the sky and stars when the blinds are open.

Shaped Windows – Shaped windows, including Triangular, Gable-End and any other shaped window, even curved will allow Blindspace to beautifully hide your blinds away when you want.

If you’re still unsure whether Blindspace® is right for you, talk to a WindowTreat concealed blinds specialist.
