Concealed blinds?

Is the ceiling grove around the edges and before the sliding doors for a concealed blinds solution? Did the ceiling have to be boxed in to accommodate this and if so was any additional depth added? Finally which blinds company was used; we’re trying to find solutions for a very similar project in our own property.

Many thanks (such a beautiful space inside and out )

    Hello Rebecca,


    thank you for your positive comment about our project.


    The groove in the ceiling is actually a recessed curtain track. The curtains are made from translucent mesh-like material (sourced by client) and stow in 'curtain cupboards' during the day. At night, the cupboard door is flipped open and the curtains pulled out. You can do recessed roller blinds above the ceiling, but they require quite a lot of space in a void above ceiling level (it depends on the dimension of the drop and the material used), so need to be planned in to the constructiion early on.
