It can be tricky to find the best blinds for sliding patio doors, as there are so many factors to consider: are the doors in frequent use? Should the blinds also serve as a privacy screen? How will they fit in with the decor of the room? Have a think about your preferences, and read the guide below to find the perfect blinds for sliding glass doors. Each style can be made-to-measure, allowing you to furnish your home without compromise.
Vertical Blinds for Sliding Glass Doors
These are an extremely popular choice for patio doors, owing to their practicality and ability to control light. The material used works perfectly to softly diffuse daylight across the room, while the linear design makes it easy to adjust how much block light can get through. They also require less cleaning than horizontal styles such as Venetian and wooden blinds, as any dust falls straight to the floor rather than collecting on the slats. Just give them a quick wipe occasionally for sleek-looking blinds all year round.
Roller Blinds for Glass Sliding Doors
Roller blinds offer a fuss-free approach to window dressing. They’re durable enough for use on a patio door, so you don’t have to worry about them blowing away in bad weather if the door is accidentally left open. At Blinds4You, we have waterproof PVC roller blinds, which provide even better protection against the elements. This also works well for families with small children, as sticky fingers won’t damage the hard-wearing material.
Thermal Blinds for Glass Sliding Doors
If you live in a particular old or poorly-insulated house, thermal blinds could be a lifesaver for your home. With energy bills on the rise, installing thermal blinds will help to keep the heat in during the frosty winter months - keeping your family warm and your heating costs down. Patio doors are perfect for summer, when the garden is in constant use and a cool breeze is needed to regulate the house temperature, but many older and single-glazed designs are ineffective during winter.
Curtains for Sliding Glass Doors
Curtains are a great and versatile choice for your patio doors. Able to go up to five meters they will fit almost any patio door. Whether you are looking for additional privacy or for decorative purposes, you can’t go wrong. Choosing blackout curtains will block light coming into the room and have the added bonus of being energy efficient. Insulating the room by keeping the heat in while still creating a designer look in your home.
