Posted 22/12/2018

French doors are a stunning addition to any home, adding a contemporary touch to a room while ticking a practical box too. These floor to ceiling panes welcome natural light into your home – making spaces feel bigger, brighter and more inviting.

Blinds are a practical and stylish addition to these ever-popular doors. Whether you want to block out the light, give yourself some extra privacy or add a burst of colour, check out our top blind ideas for your French doors.


Plantation shutters for french doors



Sitting seamlessly against your French doors, plantation shutters add a touch of elegance to any frame and are easy to use. Opt for a classic white design or get creative with a dusky blue or slate grey, perfect for shabby chic interiors. With individual slats, plantation shutters give you total control over the light seeping in. Close selected panels for extra privacy – or fold the blinds away completely for a radiant atmosphere in your home.

While these can be trickier to install than others, once fitted they require little maintenance and are easy to clean. Read our guide for more advice about how to fit plantation shutters.


Vertical blinds for french doors



Another great choice for your French windows to give you some much needed privacy without losing the natural light is vertical blinds. Providing easy ventilation and light filtering, vertical blinds offer a sleek and stylish finish for your doors. Available in an array of colours, from natural browns and creams to vibrant blues and reds, it’s easy to find a style to suit your interiors.



Roller blinds for french doors



Roller blinds add a timeless look to any room and are both functional and stylish. Easy to measure and install, you can find roller blinds that perfectly fits each panel of your French doors.

Choose from an array of colours and patterns, including bold prints and subtle hues. During the day, roll up and secure your blinds to allow easy access to your outdoor space. As night draws near, close your blinds and enjoy a cosy night in without any distractions. For the ultimate privacy, consider our range of blackout blinds.
