Recessed Gable Blinds

We have recently installed motorised Duette pleated blinds in a room darkening fabric for an apex window and set of skylights in the master bedroom of a beautiful refurbishment project in the Cotswolds. The gable blinds are fitted within Blindspace recess boxes so that they completely disappear when not in use, the perfect solution for showing off such a stunning window without blocking any of the view!

Happy Customers


On Bank Holiday Monday, we completed the installation of a large project in Oxfordshire - a stunning property with large expanses of glazing and some sloping windows. The customer was delighted and left us a lovely review on Trustpilot:

"Grand Design Blinds designed and fitted all of our blinds for a large contemporary self build with very large sliding doors and some unusually shaped windows. Their design service was excellent. Their advice was spot on. The solution is just what we needed and they are courteous, tidy and efficient. We really enjoyed working with them and cannot recommend them highly enough."

Eurostar Business Premier Lounge, London St Pancras


We recently fitted 57 bottom-up Duette pleated blinds for the Eurostar Business Premier Lounge at St Pancras International in London - the client required the blinds to be installed overnight and this, with border control and security to contend with too, made for a complex project. The lounge staff were delighted with the result, which made the space much brighter than with the old full-height dark roller blinds.

Eurostar Business Premier Lounge, Paris Gare du Nord

Grand Design Blinds were selected to supply tricky shaped blinds for large arched windows at the new Eurostar Business Premier Lounge at Gare du Nord in Paris. We provided remote-control roller blinds in a screen fabric, the arched sections pulling upwards from a custom-made timber box concealing the blind workings with the rectangular blinds dropping from below. Keep an eye on our project page for the final images in due course.

Handmade Blinds


Our pleated blinds are made chiefly by hand in small factories in South London and Kent, a labour intensive process requiring huge skill to ensure the correct shape and operation is achieved. The fabric is marked, cut, drilled, fitted to the headrails, corded, and tested entirely by hand – this is quite a slow process, but it is the best way of making sure our blinds are as close to perfect as possible.
