When choosing the right blinds for bifold doors, there are a few things you need to consider. Firstly, think about what type of look you’re going for in your room. Are you after a sleek and modern aesthetic, or something more traditional? Once you’ve decided on the style you’re after, you can then start to narrow down your choices.

Benefits of Bifold Door Blinds

Here are some of the key benefits of installing blinds on your bifold doors:

Shading and privacy

Blinds can provide excellent shading and privacy, keeping prying eyes out and preventing people from looking into your home. For optimal shading and privacy, we recommend our blackout blinds.

Insulation

Honeycomb blinds are made from a woven fabric that features small, hexagonal cells. This unique design allows the blind to trap air and provide excellent insulation, making them a great choice for bifold doors in the winter. We also offer a range of Thermal Blinds that provide effective thermal retention thanks to their quality lining.

Light control

Venetian blinds offer incredible light control, allowing you to adjust the levels of light in your room to create the perfect atmosphere. Our free-floating internal blinds also allow greater light control. Open them from the top or the bottom and adjust as the sun moves throughout the day.

Style

Blinds come in a variety of different styles so you can find the perfect one to match your décor.

Functionality

Roller blinds are easy to install and operate, making them a practical choice for any type of door, particularly our Perfect Fit Rollers.

Disadvantages of Bifold Door Blinds

The main disadvantage of installing blinds on your bifold doors is that they can restrict the movement of the door if you choose a certain style. If you have particularly large or heavy blinds, they can make it difficult to open and close your doors. This is why we recommend integral blinds for bifold doors that can be clipped into place under the bifold door seal. It’s important to choose the right type of blinds for your door and make sure they are suitable.
