Our Favourite Blinds for Patio Doors

We’re often being asked what the best blinds are for patio doors, so we thought we’d share our favourite blinds for patio doors solutions with you! Patio doors are often overlooked when it comes to blinds, but there are several great solutions to giving your patio doors the fresh makeover they may need!

Firstly, we need to establish which type of patio door you are dealing with. There is often confusion between patio doors and French doors, so let’s clear this up. A patio door consists of two or more doors, with one or more which slides. Whereas French doors are generally hinged and can be opened inwards or outwards. Now we’ve established the type of patio doors you have, we can look at the best blinds options for both.

Blinds for Patio Doors

Some may see blinds for patio doors as quite limited, due to the sliding function of the door. This means horizontal and venetian blinds are immediately out. However, don’t let this discourage you. As the perfect solution for your patio doors is a vertical blind. If your sliding door in on the left, order a vertical blind that bunches on the right, allowing you to draw the blinds to one side in order to open the door, and when the door is not in use, the blinds are easily drawn back into place.

Blinds for French Doors

While still slightly restrictive, there are slightly more options with blinds for French doors as opposed to blinds for patio doors. Although horizontal and venetian blinds are still problematic with this type of door, roller blinds can be fitted to each individual door instead of the outer frame, allowing the blinds to open and close with the door. Another option for French doors is perfect fit blinds, another ideal solution. Perfect fit blinds will sit under the rubber gasket around the perimeter of the glass. Like roller blinds, perfect fit blinds will also open and close with door and do not interfere in anyway with the door functionality.

At Blinds Boutique, we offer a large and extensive collection of vertical, perfect and roller blinds in a wide range of colours, designs and configurations, ensuring we have something that every unique taste and personality will 100% love!
