Sliding Door Curtains Hidden from View
Faced with an architect’s brief that sought to minimise (if not completely eradicate!) any presence of soft furnishings in our client’s kitchen, we were tasked with the problem of accommodating two curtain runs (of 4 and 6 metres respectively) in two cupboards. The 4 metre run would have to fit in a 50cm deep cupboard, which required some extremely careful pleat design and spacing.
We liaised with the architects to ensure that adequate provision was made in the ceiling to allow for our recessed curtain tracks, which we installed at first fix stage (see photo below).
The 6 metre run of curtains had 2 bends – one disappearing into a specially designed cupboard (below centre).
