Why recess fitted blinds?

Recess was always our favourite subject at school, and it may be your favourite way to fit a blind.

When you’re deciding on what kind of blind you’re looking to get for your home, you’ll need to decide on whether you’d like it to fit on the inside of the window (recess fit) or the outside of the window (face fit).

Let’s run through some of the benefits of recess fitting blinds below. This way you’ll have all the knowledge to make a perfect choice.

If you’re looking for neat, compact and non-invasive, then look for a recess fitted blind.

Because the blind will be neatly tucked away within the window recess, it creates a very clean and neat aesthetic. For those wanting to maximise space and a create a minimalist feel then this is a good option to consider.

Roller blinds, venetian blinds, cellular blinds, and even vertical blinds are all perfect to fit inside of a window recess and will then also allow for a pair up with something like a sheer curtain.

The combination of something like a recess fit roller blind and a sheer curtain is becoming more and more popular due to their practicality and versatility.

However, there are some considerations to make before deciding to go with a recess fit blind.

Firstly, expect a bit of light bleed. Because the blind fits inside the window there will be edging of light peering through, so it won’t be 100% blockout.

The other consideration to make is there may be obstructions within the window which causes problems. Window handles or knobs can lead to your blind banging against them which could damage the product, and the window.

Finally measuring needs to be really spot on, as even a centimetre out could cause the blind to not even fit inside the frame.

Correct measuring is key to a hassle free installation, so it’s worth getting right.
