A Closer Look at Blinds for Your Bifold Doors
Choosing blinds for bifold doors can be a challenging task. You need to consider various factors such as style, functionality, ease of use, and of course, the specific requirements of your doors. But don’t worry, we’re here to help. Let’s dive into some of the best blinds for your bifold doors:
- Perfect Fit Blinds: As the name suggests, these blinds are designed to fit perfectly within your window frames. They’re an excellent choice for bifold doors as they move with the doors when they’re opened and closed, ensuring unobstructed access to your doors at all times.
- Clic Blinds: These are an innovative and stylish solution. Their magnetic system allows them to ‘click’ into place, ensuring a clean and streamlined appearance. Plus, their slim design makes them ideal for bifold doors.
- Vertical Blinds: Offering excellent light control, vertical blinds can be a great option. Their vertical orientation complements the long lines of bifold doors, creating a cohesive and elegant look.
- Allusion Blinds: These blinds combine the sophistication of curtains with the practicality of vertical blinds. Their unique design offers exceptional light and privacy control, making them a standout choice for bifold doors.
- Blind Screen: The latest addition to our range at Homely Blinds and Shutters, the Blind Screen is a versatile and stylish choice. It offers light filtering during the day and can provide a blackout effect when required.
Remember, all these options can be custom made and fitted to your specific requirements, ensuring your bifold doors look their best while serving their purpose. Now, let’s explore why investing in blinds for your bifold doors can be beneficial.
Pairing your bifold doors with the right blinds can bring a range of benefits that enhance both the functionality and aesthetics of your living space. Here are some of the key advantages:
- Enhanced Light Control: Bifold door blinds allow you to adjust the amount of light that enters your room with ease, ensuring you can create the perfect ambiance at any time of day.
- Increased Privacy: Bifold doors offer stunning views, but they can also make your interiors visible. The right blinds can provide you with the privacy you need, without compromising the accessibility and openness that bifold doors provide.
- Improved Energy Efficiency: Blinds can act as an insulating barrier, keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This can potentially save on energy bills, making them a smart choice for eco-conscious homeowners.
- Aesthetic Appeal: With a wide range of styles, materials, and colours available, bifold door blinds can enhance your interior decor and complement the style of your home.
While there are many advantages to fitting blinds on your bifold doors, it’s also important to consider potential drawbacks. The main challenge lies in choosing blinds that won’t interfere with the doors’ functionality. Bifold doors are designed to fold away neatly, and the wrong type of blinds might obstruct this.
For instance, heavy drapes or poorly fitted blinds could disrupt the smooth operation of the doors. Similarly, external blinds might provide insufficient clearance when the doors are folded back, leading to potential damage or wear.
That’s why we recommend considering bespoke, made-to-measure solutions like those we offer at Homely Blinds and Shutters. By taking into account the unique specifications of your doors, we can ensure your chosen blinds enhance your bifold doors’ functionality rather than hinder it.
In summary, choosing the right blinds for your bifold doors can truly transform your living space. The right choice can enhance light control, privacy, energy efficiency, and, of course, add a stylish touch to your interiors. However, it’s also crucial to consider potential drawbacks, ensuring that your blinds don’t interfere with your doors’ functionality.

To further assist you in making the right decision for your bifold doors, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions we receive from clients:
Q1. Can I install blinds on the outside of bifold doors?
While external blinds are an option, they may not provide the clearance needed when folding the doors back, potentially causing damage. Internal blinds, such as Perfect Fit or Clic blinds, are often a better choice for bifold doors.
Q2. Can blinds still provide a view when closed?
Certainly! Options like Allusion blinds and Blind Screens allow you to control both light and privacy while still providing a view of the outdoors
