Aussies love outdoor living. For a lot of us, creating an open-plan space by connecting our outside eating and entertaining areas with our indoor ones is super important.
To make this space as functional and appealing as possible, choosing the right patio blinds is essential. After all, those doors get opened and closed umpteen times a day! We want a clear vision between the two areas during the day, yet we need privacy at night. Sometimes we want to block out the outside heat, and other times we need to keep the inside of the home warmer. Is it even possible to find blinds that will meet this list of criteria?
We get it: understanding what blinds are best for patio doors can be a bit tricky. That’s why we’ve taken the time to jot down our top six options:
Practical; stylish; effective… vertical blinds are perfect for patio doors! They stack neatly, cover your windows from top to bottom and offer excellent thermal protection. Vertical blinds are available in a wide range of textures, patterns, colours, and levels of opacity, which means they can be integrated into any interior design style.
When choosing window treatments for your patio doors, it’s important that you pick something that’s easy to clean. Vertical blinds are super user-friendly, and a quick vacuum or wipe down every now and again is generally all that’s needed to keep them looking as good as new!
Roller blinds remain one of the most popular window treatments of all time, and they’re perfect for patio doors. Functional, classy and efficient, their simplicity makes them a practical and effective choice for situations where you want clear visibility. Dual roller blinds are a fantastic way to achieve privacy and light control without compromising the view of your patio area.
Panel Glide Blinds
If you want a window treatment that stacks right out of the way, panel glide blinds are a fantastic option. Super trendy and undeniably elegant, panel glide blinds are a popular choice when you need that superb harmony between style and functionality. Again, a range of colours, textures, and patterns means that your panel glide blinds will complement your interior design style to perfection.
Are you concerned about thermal protection? Luxaflex® Duette shades are the most efficient window treatment in Australia, and they can be installed on patio doors. Their honeycomb cell structure provides an extra layer of insulation between the interior of your home and the elements outside.
Roman blinds are perfectly suited to both the traditional and contemporary home. Their practicality and charm make them a popular choice for homeowners who want thermal insulation properties without the bulk of traditional drapes. When fully opened, roman blinds gather in soft pleats which adds a pelmet-like feature to your windows.
Can your blinds be integrated into your home automation system? Yes! Motorized blinds allow you the comfort and convenience of control at the push of a button. Talk to the staff at Complete Blinds about how motorized blinds will make your life easier!
