During your free blinds consultation, your fitter will talk to you in detail about what you’re looking for, and how best to achieve it. Even so, it’s often a good idea to work out what you’re looking for ahead of time, to give yourself more of an opportunity to think over ideas and consider all angles.
As an example, we’ll walk you through the process of selecting Roman blinds for your patio doors. From style considerations to practical tips, here are the things that will help you make an informed decision that elevates your indoor and outdoor space. Let’s get started!
Style and Aesthetics
Roman blinds offer a timeless and elegant window treatment option that seamlessly blends style and functionality. When choosing Roman blinds for your patio doors, consider the overall aesthetic you want to achieve. Roman blinds come in a variety of fabrics, colours, and patterns, allowing you to personalize your space and complement your existing décor. You could opt for fabrics that enhance the ambiance of your outdoor area, such as light and breezy materials for a relaxed and airy feel, or bold patterns to make a statement.
Light Control and Privacy
One of the key advantages of Roman blinds is their excellent light control capabilities. With patio doors being a major source of natural light, it’s essential to select blinds that offer the right balance between illumination and privacy. Consider the opacity of the fabric—sheer or translucent fabrics allow soft diffused light to enter while maintaining privacy, while heavier fabrics provide more light blockage for increased privacy. You can also choose Roman blinds with a lining for enhanced light control and insulation.
Size and Fit
Accurate measurements are crucial when selecting Roman blinds for patio doors. Measure the width and height of your doors, taking into account any handles, locks, or other obstructions. Ensure your chosen blinds fit within the door frame or extend slightly beyond to provide optimal coverage and functionality. If you prefer a more streamlined look, consider outside mount blinds that cover the entire door frame, creating a clean and polished appearance.
Operation and Functionality
Consider the ease of operation when choosing Roman blinds for your patio doors. Cordless options provide a sleek and child-safe solution, eliminating the need for dangling cords. Alternatively, opt for motorised blinds for effortless control and convenience, allowing you to adjust the blinds with the touch of a button. Motorised blinds are particularly beneficial for large patio doors or hard-to-reach areas.
Enhancing energy efficiency in your home is not only environmentally friendly but also helps to keep your bills down. You may want to look for Roman blinds with insulating properties, such as thermal or blackout linings. These linings help to regulate temperature, keeping your space cool in the summer and warm in the winter – by minimizing heat transfer, they create a more comfortable environment and potentially reduce your energy bills.
Maintenance and Care
Consider the maintenance requirements of the Roman blinds you choose for your patio doors. Fabrics that are easy to clean and maintain are preferable for high-traffic areas – so if the patio doors are the main thoroughfare into the garden, that might be the best option. Look for machine-washable or wipe-clean fabrics that allow you to quickly and effortlessly remove dust, dirt, or stains. Regular maintenance will help preserve the appearance of your blinds and extend their lifespan, keeping them looking fresh and beautiful for years to come.
While Roman blinds can be installed as a DIY project, professional installation by the team at Expression Blinds ensures a perfect fit and proper operation. Hiring an experienced installer guarantees that your blinds are correctly mounted, allowing for smooth and hassle-free operation, and ensures that the installation itself is a quick, non-disruptive one.
