Blind Options for Bi-folding Doors
Bi-folding doors are becoming increasingly popular, especially amongst contemporary home renovations, whether that’s in the kitchen or any other type of living space. This desirable door opens your home up to the outdoors with uninterrupted views, which mostly tend to be of the surrounding garden.
You should be careful not to cover up the doors beautiful simplicity and sleekness with busy looking and fussy blinds, or similarly large and thick curtains. A bi-folding door consists of perfectly formed, clean lines that need equally as perfect fitting blinds to complete the look, whilst allowing you privacy in your own home when you need it.
Here at Angel Blinds, we’re going to take a look at some of the best suited blind styles, so you can get the most out of your bi-folding doors.
Roman blinds provide a happy medium between blinds and curtains. They take up less room than curtains so won’t restrict your view to outdoors, but can still offer the same cosiness and warmth of a curtain, due to their drapery fabric. So if you find yourself deliberating between the two, this could be the ideal solution. The only thing to bear in mind is the space the blind will take up above the doors when folded back. It might be worth checking this first before you go ahead and buy your Roman blinds.
If your bi-folding doors are to complement an equally contemporary styled room, then roller blinds would be an excellent choice. Their sleek, simple appearance is coupled with an easy operable cord to open and close the blinds, that has little scope for any mishaps. A roller blind will offer privacy and block out the sun from the room when needed, helping protect any furniture that would otherwise be vulnerable to damaging UV rays.
If you’re a perfectionist and like things to be absolutely spot on, then perfect fit blinds might be a range well worth a browse! Regardless of the size of your bi-folding doors, perfect fit blinds are tailored to fit the exact size of the window and won’t deface the surrounding wall when installing either. Sitting flush against the window pane, with perfect fit blinds you don’t have to worry about any gaping around the edges, so you can reap the benefits of total light blockage and privacy.
So before you rush into choosing the blinds you like based solely on the appearance, remember our helpful advice so you can be sure you have chosen the ideal blind for your bi-folding doors, in terms of both appearance and practicality.
