Blinds Options For French Doors
Vertical blinds for French doors
For a more traditional look many people choose the vertical blind. Not only does it look great, it also fits into any size window. The key advantage of applying vertical blinds to French and patio doors is the ease of operation of the blinds; as the slats are made from fabric, even when the drop is extremely long, they are still light in weight. This means that there is very little effort required to actually pull the blinds open and closed.
All vertical blinds are supplied with fully customisable controls, allowing the user to select the side the blind opener is fitted and which side the operating controls sit on. The controls allow you to open your blinds whilst you’re stood away from the door.
Wooden blinds for French doors
Wooden Blinds always look fabulous and by Installing them directly onto the door makes them easy to use and adjust. The glass panels are completely covered so privacy is not compromised.
These are currently one of our most popular blinds. They require a slightly different kind of installation to vertical blinds when it comes to French doors. Whereas verticals are installed to either the inside or outside recess and cover the whole of the window, wooden blinds are installed onto the doors themselves.
We have a huge range of colours and finishes to choose from when it comes to wooden blinds, and we can also use a contrasting or complementing colour tape to the blinds to really add that beautiful finishing touch!
Perfect Fit Blinds for French Doors
Perfect fit blinds are an exciting new innovation in window blind technology. They offer a modern solution to shading and providing privacy. Perfect fit blinds are easy to install and work on a simple system. They allow pleated, roller or venetian blinds to be fitted perfectly onto your UPVC French doors in an elegant frame that clips onto the window frame itself with little effort. They look stunning and give a wide choice of options.
There is no drilling or damage to the window frame, the blinds simply clip into place on brackets that slot behind the rubber seal. Perfect fit blinds sit flush to the frames, leaving the window sills clutter free, creating a clear and clean space.
We have a huge range of fabric colours and textures to match the interior design scheme of any home, they are easily removable for cleaning and have no loose cords or loops.
