Which blinds are best for bi-fold doors?

So, you have just had your new bi-folding doors fitted and ask yourself which blinds are best for bi-fold doors? Bifold doors have become incredibly popular over recent years. Not only do they let in lots of natural light, but they’re also very aesthetically pleasing and low maintenance. However, it can often be difficult to select the perfect blinds for these doors, particularly with so much choice on offer. In this article, we will take a look at a range of blinds for bifold doors and help you find the best solutions for your needs. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you require the best quality bifolding door blinds in Nottingham and Newark. 

The best blinds for your bifold doorsBifold Door Blinds

There are many styles and designs available to you when it comes to modern blinds. Over recent years, blinds have become incredibly adaptable to a wealth of needs. They can add extra elegance to living rooms, bathrooms, and bedrooms, and can even provide shade in attics. 

More and more people are using blinds to dress glass doors and bi-fold doors. One of the biggest benefits of using blinds for bi-fold doors is that they don’t need to be raised when doors are opened and closed. 

Roller blinds

Roller blinds are a highly popular option for bi-folding doors. Fans of roller blinds love the way they don’t draw much attention away from the doors themselves. They are easy to install and operate and noted for their clean, unfussy lines as well as their modern, stylish appearance. 

Roman blinds

Roman blinds tend to be thicker than many other blinds. They have more in common with curtains than roller blinds but remain incredibly practical and stylish. You can still open and close roman blinds with ease when they are drawn, though you will need to create extra space at the top of your door frame for when you draw them up. 

Perfect fit blinds

Perfect fit blinds are noted for their stylish clean, straight lines but will also provide all the shade and privacy that you need. When you are away from home, it’s a good idea to keep your perfect fit blinds closed. This will stop UV rays from attacking and fading your furniture, therefore allowing you to prolong their lives. 

Venetian blinds

Venetian blinds are well known for their timeless appeal. They give you all the control over the light you need and come complete with horizontal slats. You can adjust these slats to gain the exact amount of light you require. Many customers choose stylish aluminium blinds that match their modern bi-fold doors perfectly. 

Intu blinds

Intu blinds fit into window frames effortlessly and are perfect for people who don’t want to deal with cords or excess material. It’s easy to adjust Intu blinds for height, and their design makes them a safe option for households with young children. As Intu blinds are “bead fit”, you don’t need to carry out any drilling or screwing to fit them. Duette blinds share many similarities with Intu blinds and are often used as close alternatives. 

Plantation shutters

Plantation shutters remain a very popular choice for bi-folding doors, particularly amongst those seeking a blend of classic and contemporary style. As well as being incredibly stylish, they can also enhance your privacy and make your home more secure. The shutters are well-suited to outwards-facing doors. They have thicker slats than many other products on the market and can be installed with ease. Once your plantation shutters are in place, they won’t require much maintenance to keep them looking their best. 

Conservatory bifolding doorsBi-fold blind

Bifolding doors have become common choices for conservatories. One reason for this is that they allow people to bring light and air into their space during the summer months. Pleated blinds are incredibly popular amongst conservatory users who are seeking a minimalist look. They fold away neatly, fitting snugly into the window recess to give a tidy appearance. Fitting pleated blinds into the frames of conservatory bifolding doors is simple. They can easily be added to internally-opening doors without compromising the way that they operate. 

Combination blinds 

Combination blinds can help you reduce the amount of heat lost through bifold doors during the colder months of the year. It’s common for people to combine roller blinds with pleated blinds to trap the warmth inside their spaces when autumn and winter strike.
