The Ultimate Guide To Blinds for Doors

Patio, French, Conservatory, Bi-Fold… whatever type of door you need blinds for, we have it covered, literally! We know there’s a lot to consider so we’ve created the Ultimate Guide to Blinds for Doors to help you make those all important decisions. Whichever blinds you choose, remember that safety is key.

Things to consider when choosing your made to measure blinds for doors:

Light

Are you Dracula or Tinkerbell?! Whether you prefer pitch black or light and bright, we have a stunning range of fabrics to suit you. From transparent roller blinds to blackout roman blinds, the choice is entirely up to you. Download our augmented reality app to see how our blinds will work with the light in your room.


Heat

Depending on the time of year, keeping heat in or out is a huge factor when choosing blinds for doors. Opt for a snug fit and consider thermal lining to trap heat, keeping energy bills down and comfort at a maximum. Tightly woven fabrics like our Wool are naturally thermal so you may not even need lining - perfect for cosy nights in.


Privacy

If your doors are overlooked by neighbours at the back, or facing the main street, blinds that will give added privacy are super important. Semi transparent blinds like our Oceana let light stream through the window at the same time as giving optimum privacy. In addition to being good for your home, this collection is also good for the planet, made from 100% recycled plastic collected from the Mediterranean Sea.


Room

The blinds you choose for a conservatory off the kitchen are often quite different to those you’d choose for French doors in the bedroom. While conservatory doors will look great with a sheer fabric Roman or roller blind, the same blind would not work in a bedroom. In the same way, Blackout blinds in a conservatory would be overpowering and take away the open, airy feel of such a space. Check out our blind builder to see what works best for your space.


Style

Roman, Roller or Blackout?! Once you have decided on the rest of the elements, it’s time to choose which style will look best on your doors. Keep in mind the style and material of the door, frame and surrounding windows. For example sleek aluminium bi-fold doors will usually look better with a slim fitting roller blind while a chunkier French door will be stunning with a luxurious silk roman blind. Don’t be afraid to mix and match curtains with your blinds. Perhaps you choose a blackout blind for your door, you can always add curtains to cover the adjacent, stationary windows.
