Blinds for sash windows
Sash windows are a gorgeous, period feature that lots of us love. And with more eco-friendly, uPVC options available now, they’re popping up more than ever. If you’re searching for blinds for your sash windows, then here are some ideas.
Inside or out
Depending on your style sash window, can you choose to fit your blinds inside or outside the recess. In this feature window, we’ve slotted it neatly in the recess to let the bold print (called Geode Tangerine) and that fabulous brick wall do the talking. Fitting it inside the recess here also kept the attractive arched bricks at the top of the window in full view.
Sash bay windows are also common. So if you’re three or more windows to dress, Roller blinds might be just the ticket. These blinds called Watercolour Violet feature a border print that looks gorgeous when rolled down. Learn how to measure for an angled bay window here, or a square one here.
Roller blinds work on ordinary sash windows too. We’ve gone for a warm, neutral shade in this living room to make things snuggly and inviting. Now if you excuse us, we’ll just curl up here with a good book and a cuppa.
Play with texture
Perfect Fit Pleated blinds won’t work for sash windows due to the way the windows open, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have Pleateds. Choosing the free-hanging variety gives you flexibility to hang either inside or outside the recess. We love the variety of textures in this traditional bathroom.
Go for slats
If privacy is an issue, then go for a blind with slats for your sash window. We’ve chosen a versatile Fauxwood blind for this living room – and of course, tilting the slats will help with light control too.
