|Door Blinds: A Helpful Guide
If you have glass doors or windows within your doors then you may want to cut down on the amount of light that streams through them. The right blind can also help to cut down on heating costs by having an additional form of insulation. When you use door blinds functionality is also important so you can use the door. However, for many finding the right blind for the job can prove difficult.
When considering which type of blind is going to be suitable you need to consider the type of door your are fitting the blind onto. Wooden doors can be screwed into no problem at all whereas UPVC or composite doors can be damaged & in most instances lose their warranties by screwing into them.
Blind types for wooden doors:
Within reason you can fit most types of blind to a wooden door. The main concern is ensuring that the blinds do not swing back and forth once fitted when you open and close the door. The blind will therefore need to be stabilized for a proper fit. Both metal venetians and wooden venetian blinds can be provided with hold down brackets – these secure the blind in place at the bottom of the blind whilst still allowing you to tilt the slats. All venetian blinds from orderblinds.co.uk can be provided with hold down brackets for free! Just ask one of our customer care team if placing your order by phone or if ordering through our website, simply add to the notes when checking out that the blind is being fitted to a door.
Blinds for UPVC doors:
A solution which avoids drilling as well as looking great is the Perfect Fit Blind. The Perfect Fit frame attaches onto the window via brackets that slip between the rubber beading and the glass giving a very neat finish. Available in aluminium or wood Venetian as well as roller blinds there are many different designs and colours to choose from depending on the look you want to create or the room that the blind will go in.
The Perfect Fit Venetian offers a classic & elegant look with many neutral tones which are particularly popular on French doors or conservatories while the Perfect Fit Roller Blind comes in an array of bright colours and designs as well as blackout fabrics for bedrooms. The size of the door will also play a role in your decision making process as Perfect Fit blackout roller blinds can only be made to a maximum length of 135cm. The dim-out, sheer & aluminium venetians can all be made up to a length of 200cm.
