Walk through any new build or architectural home and you’ll likely spy at least a raked ceiling or two, and triangular windows. Raked ceilings, or ceilings with an incline, are a fabulous way to create drama and with the right window placement can flood a space in natural light. Yet in the excitement of designing a space with raked ceilings, it can be easy to overlook the practical need for window coverings.
It isn’t possible to use every type of window covering on a raked ceiling… and if you have hard to reach triangular windows, automation is more important than ever.
So, let’s explore the best window coverings for raked ceilings and triangular windows.
Curtains are my top window covering solution in most rooms. They instantly add a designer look and offer fabulous insulation benefits. Plus, at dollar curtains + blinds you’ll have the largest choice of curtain fabrics in Australia so you can find the perfect solution for your space. There’s a lot to consider when picking curtain fabrics and I cover off on the most important curtain fabric points in this article.
Depending on the angle of your roofline, dollar curtains + blinds can accommodate most window shapes and sizes and will custom make your Curtain to fit perfectly. This means the curtain track can be fixed on to your sloping ceiling in most circumstances and the Curtain will be specially cut to fit the window or wall. Pretty amazing!
It’s even possible for the team to custom make a Pelmet if you’d like to cover the curtain track and hardware. Pelmets offer fabulous added insulation benefits.
The only limitation of Curtains on a raked ceiling is automation. It isn’t possible to motorise curtains on a sloping angle so if you have particularly high ceilings where hand drawing the curtain may be problematic, keep reading for other window covering solutions.
