What Are the Best Blinds for Patio Doors?

What Are the Best Blinds for Patio Doors?

Your patio doors give you a great portal into your garden, allowing you to bridge the gap between indoors and outdoors, which is perfect for a nice summer’s day. But about when you need to control the lighting and privacy indoors? Blinds can help you achieve both these things, but there are so many styles to choose from that you might be left wondering what the best blinds for patio doors are.

This month at Solo Blinds, we’ve got you covered with our top five best blinds for patio doors. Whether you’ve got simple patio doors, sliding doors, bi-folding doors or conservatory doors, take a look at our list to find out what works best.

Perfect Fit blinds

When you’ve got patio doors or bi-folding doors, you want to get the most use out of them without having to wrestle with blinds, so what better way to dress them than with Perfect Fit blinds? These made-to-measure blinds simply slot into place over the glass panes of your doors using their own frame – no drilling required. 

You can combine this with a number of blinds styles, ensuring a tidy finish that still gives you complete control over functionality. Simply raise and lower the blinds within their frames and never worry about getting your blinds caught in the door or flapping in the wind.

Vertical blinds

One of the ultimate classics when it comes to dressing large, windowed doors, vertical blinds offer you floor to ceiling coverage, with the option to pull all the slats to one side when you intend to open the doors for some air and sunlight. They’re also great at controlling privacy, with each slat pivoting in whichever direction you need them to. Plus, you can match the colour of your blinds to the rest of your interior design scheme, so they can either be a statement piece or they can blend in seamlessly.

Pleated blinds

Using a corrugated effect, pleated blinds can provide coverage for your French doors or patio doors, but most importantly, they can be integrated as a Perfect Fit blind. Many pleated blinds not only offer light and privacy control by covering the windows of your doors, but they can also come with a UV-reflective backing to help add a little more thermal efficiency to your windows. A simple but effective option, pleated blinds also come in a wide range of colours to suit your home.

Venetian blinds

If you’re looking for an elegant solution for your patio doors and you don’t intend to leave the doors open much, then Venetian blinds are ideal. The horizontal slatted material allows you to control lighting and privacy with precise control, and while they might begin to flap in a breeze, you’ll always have the option of drawing them up fully if you do intend to have your doors open.

Blackout blinds

Not all patio doors are at the back of a home away from the main living areas. What if you have patio doors in the bedroom, leading to a balcony? And what if your patio doors are part of your living room? They’re great for letting air and light in, but when you want to sleep, watch television, or generally wind down for the evening, you need blackout blinds. Choosing a blackout material means you can eliminate glare and sunlight at any time of the day or night. But this doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style either, since you can still get all the greatest colours and patterns you’d usually expect.

Here at Solo Blinds, we offer a wide range of blinds choices for your patio doors, including bi-folding door blinds. So whether you’re looking to get Perfect Fit blinds measured to the exact frame of the glass in your doors or you simply need something to hang in front of your doors, such as Venetian blinds or vertical blinds, look no further.
