Amdega Conservatory Blinds, Solihull
Conservatory Type: White timber Amdega, floor to ceiling glass, 8m x 6m, glass roof
Mr & Mrs J knew that they wanted pinoleum roof & side blinds, having seen, & ruled out, all of the other options. Mainly because pinoleum would blend in to their traditional Amdega Edwardian conservatory, & be in keeping with their style of property.
The optimum design would be to rebate the pinoleum blinds between the major roof & side beams. Although there are 3 panes of glass per roof section, it was agreed that the neatest look would be to keep the number of blinds to a minimum, for example 1 rectangular & 2 right-angled, triangular blinds at each end of the room, as pictured above. With such high side windows, the pinoleum side blinds would be kept up to the level of the base of the top leaded windows during the day & lowered at night for a feeling of privacy & cosiness. Pole operated roof blinds were selected, although due to the lovely light filtering properties of pinoleum, the pole would rarely be used. The sides operated by cord & twin cleats spaced apart for rapid operation.
“They enhance, rather than detract, from the ambience of our conservatory. Pinoleum provides ample shading, but still allows filtered light into the room.”
