French Doors & Their Blinds

French Doors & Their Blinds

French doors are a great addition to your house décor. Not only do they serve as classy doors but they also provide a great view; combining the door and window experience into one. Now once you install a French window, you will need to opt for a window treatment; unless of course you don’t want to.

As curtains as to windows, blinds are to French doors. You have a great range of options as to what type of blinds you may choose to install. The type of blinds you will purchase must rely on the rest of the room’s décor, and of course, the budget. The most popular French door blinds are the rollup blinds. They are relatively cheap and their installation is also quick. Although valences usually go with curtains, there are some schools of thought who like valences to go with their French door décor.

When it comes to rollup blinds, the light that enters the room varies which is often a cause of visual discomfort for people in the room. If you don’t want to have to adjust the blinds all the times, the other alternative is to install shutters. Shutters are a little more expensive that blinds, but it’s totally worth the buck. Made from wood, vinyl or faux wood they look stunning on French doors. Most people go for faux wood or vinyl, since wood shutters are on the heavier side.

If neither blinds nor shutters catch your fancy, there is yet another alternative. Vertical French door blinds are not only affordable but tend to soften any room particularly when made from vinyl instead of aluminum. A little bit of your privacy is compromised since it’s possible to see through their slats even when the vertical blinds are shut. In case you want something totally off the hook, there are built-in French doors that you could get too. They are basically blinds constructed between two panels of glass, away from dust and dirt since they are sealed properly.

Stepping away from the conventional, you could also go traditional and just have curtains covering the French doors. For your own sanity, please get curtains made of fabric that are easy to wash and maintain. The curtain should be made from quality fabric so that it lasts longer and doesn’t fade away quickly.
