French doors make the most of natural light in your home, and are perfect if you have spectacular views you want to enjoy whenever you like.
But you don’t always want the light streaming through your French doors, so it’s important to choose the right blinds for your doors so you can add style to your room.
We’ve put together 3 types of blind that work well with French doors in different rooms.
The dining room: Roman blindsWindow dressings in a dining room need to be practical, as they need to reduce glare and keep the room warm when it’s not in use.
Roman blinds look stylish in a dining room and they give you the option to control the sunlight a temperature. You could pair them with curtains to add extra thermal efficiency and choose thermal linings.
The bedroom: wooden blindsFrench doors are wonderful for letting the sun in, but if you’ve got French doors in your bedroom you’re not always going to want the sun streaming through.
Wooden blinds are perfect for the bedroom as they can be fully closed at night. You could add a voile curtain to soften the look and even add curtains to prevent any light from coming through at all. You don’t have to go for a natural wood colour either – choose a colour that matches your bedroom’s decor.
The kitchen: vertical blindsKitchens get a lot of use and can become quite messy, so you need a blind that is hardwearing and practical.
Vertical blinds are perfect for kitchens as they filter light well and are robust. You can purchase them special finishes like waterproof, Teflon coated, PVC and anti-glare. This way you can keep your kitchen looking clean without sacrificing style.
