There was a time when French and patio doors were seen as the height of exotic chic. They were once the home accessories of only the well to do. They would garner puzzled looks from people who couldn’t believe there was another entrance to the house apart from the front and back door. It was a bit like when you first encountered a video recorder for example as if it was a marvellous machine from another planet. You might think the same when you see our very stripy blinds for French doors.
Blinds for French Doors – pourquoi?
Now nearly everyone has French doors they don’t seem so exotic any more. They let light stream in and allow you to enjoy the splendour of the garden or patio throughout the day. But what about when it’s time to shut out the world? When the light begins to fade the choices are limited. Curtains are heavy and expensive, Venetian and roller blinds are clumsy and difficult to use in this location. The simplest system in our stripy view is vertical blinds for French doors.
Roller blinds are often used where space is at a premium and there is no room for the folded up header of a Roman Blind. Now with an integral covered pelmet, these roller blinds are very stylish, compact and easy to operate. Providing privacy and a splash of colour where it is most needed.
