Blinds for Awkward Window Shapes

Posted on 30th September 2014 by Gemini Blinds

Upon first entering a room, the windows are often the first feature that your eyes are drawn to. This is especially noticeable when the windows have a unique shape that makes them stand out even further. However, most window coverings are designed for use on standard windows, which makes finding suitable blinds for more distinctive window shapes a bit of a challenge.

If you have uniquely shaped windows, don’t worry; the team at Gemini Blinds has compiled this list of the best blinds for awkward window shapes to help you find the perfect solution.

Skylight blinds

Skylight windows allow some much-needed natural light to flood into your home through the roof. However, because of their size and positioning, it can be tricky to find blinds that accommodate these windows.

Here at Gemini Blinds, we supply skylight blinds that are specifically designed for this purpose, with wand and automatic operation for these hard-to-reach areas. Available in a variety of styles – including roller, Venetian, pleated and more – our skylight blinds are crafted to ensure a seamless fit for skylight windows of all shapes and sizes.

Plantation shutters

Plantation shutters are made to measure and can be fitted either inside or outside of the window recess, making them perfect for any style or shape of window.  These attractive wooden shutters add a traditional, timeless style to any room while allowing for complete control over the level of light thanks to their adjustable louvres. What’s more, plantation shutters can also help to muffle any external noise, making them the ideal choice if you live on a busy street and want some peace.

Tier-on-tier shutters

If your home is fitted with tall sash windows, styling them effectively can be a challenge, especially if you want to maximise natural light without sacrificing privacy. That’s where tier-on-tier shutters can come in handy. Adding a continental touch to your interior, these innovative shutters are split into two sections – a top half and a bottom half – that can be operated independently. This allows you greater control over the levels of natural light, as you can leave one half open and the other closed for privacy – the perfect solution for any street-facing windows.

Roller blinds

If you’re looking for a fuss-free window covering that will never go out of style, roller blinds are the way to go. With a compact and flexible design, roller blinds can be cut to fit virtually any window shape, making them a great choice for non-standard windows. With an extensive range of patterns, materials and colours available, these practical blinds can be customised to your taste.

Bi-folding door blinds

Due to their unique design, it can be tricky to find blinds that accommodate your bi-folding doors. Here at Gemini Blinds, we supply bi-folding door blinds that are specifically designed for this purpose. With a range of styles available – such as Perfect Fit blinds, allusion blinds, vertical blinds and more – we offer stylish solutions that provide light control and privacy without interfering with the door’s opening mechanism and functionality.

Vertical blinds

An old favourite, vertical blinds are a no-nonsense window covering that can be custom made to hang in the recess of any window shape, such as apex, arched or curved windows. The vertical slats can be easily angled and adjusted to offer precise control over the level of light filtration. Versatile and adaptable, vertical blinds aren’t limited by any odd angles and can effectively cover any window.

Panel blinds

A blend of both vertical blinds and curtains, panel blinds feature wide fabric panels that slide across a multi-channel track. This unique design allows for each panel to be individually layered and adjusted, so whether your window is wide, narrow or oddly shaped, you can cover it completely without any awkward gaps or bunching.

Duette blinds

Duette blinds are known for their versatility and, with no rigid slats, this unique fabric can be precisely fitted to windows of any shape or size. However, this isn’t their only benefit; thanks to their innovative honeycomb structure, Duette blinds are incredibly insulating and can reduce heat loss from your windows by up to 55%!
