Patio doors are a beautiful way to let light into your home without driving up the cost of your electricity bill. They not only provide a seamless and stylish transition between your interiors and your outdoor area, but they can instantly brighten up a small, dark space with natural light.
However, sometimes we’d rather limit the light, maintain our privacy and enhance our feelings of security – and that’s where investing in a set of patio door blinds can add real value to your home. If you’re unsure what type or style to go for, we’ve broken down our various blinds for patio doors so you can find the best option (we have over 50 colours and combinations!) for your home.
Pleated Blinds for Patio Doors
Classic and practical, pleated blinds offer a customisable product for your patio doors. You can lower or raise to your preference, giving you more control over lighting or glare. Something semi-opaque filters and softens outside light, infusing the room with a cosy sense of warmth. Pleated blinds are more robust than they look: they’re resistant to stains and retain their shape throughout the years, making them an ideal option for homes with curious little ones.
Energy-Efficient Blinds for Patio Doors
Because patio doors let in so much external light, they can be instrumental in affecting the internal temperature of your home. An energy-efficient blind like our Duette® blinds offering features a hexagonal structure that traps heat in during the winter and keeps interiors cool during the summer.
Vertical Blinds for Patio Doors
Vertical blinds offer more control over privacy, which is especially useful if your patio doors are overlooked or are located next to a high-traffic area. Vertical blinds are incredibly easy to operate, as you have the option of rotating the blinds as well as controlling how much of the door they cover.
If you’re after something with the elegance of a drape with the practicality of a traditional vertical blind, opt for something crafted out of sheer fabric, like our Luminette® blinds, so you can get the best of both. Despite their lightweight feel, when closed, these blinds offer 99% UV protection to prevent fading.
Venetian Blinds for Patio Doors
If your patio doors are located in your kitchen, Venetian blinds are a great option, as they are moisture-resistant, durable and very easily cleaned. These are also perfect for listed or rented properties, as they are tension fit and require no drilling for installation. The slats of our Metal Venetian blinds fit very close to the glass of your door, so you don’t have to worry about annoying flapping in the breeze or light gaps. If you are looking to inject some colour into your interiors, this is a great option: there are over 90 different colours and finishes to choose from, so you can customise to your unique tastes.
