Best Blinds For Doors

Best Blinds For Doors

Blinds are not meant for just windows. 

Although windows get the most treatment and are commonly the gateway for light to come into the room, you can put blinds and shades on doors as well. Sliding doors, French doors, and even just regular doors. These can all receive treatment like roller shades, wooden blinds, and even faux wood blinds.

Doors like sliding doors, French doors, and even just big front doors can look beautiful and offer so much to the interior and exterior of your home. Sliding doors and French doors have large windows that let in light and illuminate your interior. However, they don’t provide much privacy. Doors especially do not come with default curtains, so your private life is out in the open for everyone to see. Don’t let strangers and creeps see what you do in your privacy. 

Blinds For French Doors

French doors are some of the best doors out there. Elegant, intricate, but also so simple. French doors let in lots of light, look great, and are sturdier than most door designs. Some doors are soundproof French doors. But what about privacy? This is where french doors lack. French doors are some of the largest doors and have wide spaces for the glass to go into. This kind of space allows for creeps and weirdos to peek in. Don’t be caught off guard by an outsider or let your privacy become a public matter. Invest in blinds for your French doors. 

5 Best Blinds For Your French Doors

When it comes to blinds or shades for your French doors, there are plenty of options to choose from. ShadeMonster recommends these 5 blinds for your French doors: 

  1. Faux Wood Blinds

Durable and cheaper than wood blinds, they still look like wood blinds but have extra durability and a financial benefit. Because they are not made of real wood, faux wood blinds will not warp or fade or get marked by humidity. 


  1. Wood Blinds

Although faux wood blinds were placed first, there is nothing wrong with picking wood blind over faux wood blinds. The natural color of the wood blinds will complement the interior of any home. Being minimally processed, our wood blinds are as close to wood as you can get. In addition, wood blinds offer natural insulation on top of the privacy that most wood blinds offer, making it not only very protective of your house from outside eyes, but also very good for saving energy when trying to keep your room warm during cold winters.


  1. Cellular Shades

Cellular shades provide a kind of insulation that is unique to itself. Created out of either double cell or single cell, cellular shades can become your best friend as a shade for French doors during cold weather. Made of possibly two layers, cellular shades can be customized for opacity, material, and even color to maximize privacy. Cellular shades can even be motorized, made cordless, and even remote controlled. This can make your privacy not only easy, but convenient from anywhere in the house. 

  1. Roman Shades

Roman shades are one of the most simple and classic designs. Roman shades are simply pieces of fabric that have folds in them so that they can be rolled up with not only ease, but also give the home an aesthetic look when rolled up or down. Opacity and material are customizable, and thus allow for maximum privacy. Being able to be raised or lowered through a cord or cordless system, they fold as they get raised and unfold as they get lowered, giving the entire home a nice aesthetic. 


  1. Roller Shades

As the name suggests, roller shades quite literally roll up and down. For maximum privacy, roller shades can be rolled down (lowered) and to let in light they can be rolled up (raised). Simple and easy to use, there is no denying that roller shades can help your home improve its privacy. However, ShadeMonster adds another layer of simplicity and convenience to the already simple roller shades. ShadeMonster will even motorize the shades for you. Making them cordless, motorized, or even remote-controlled is all a part of our service to you. 

Best Blinds For Sliding Doors

Blinds can also be for sliding doors as well. Sliding doors are quite literally large and moving windows. Because of how big they are, they not only let in light, but also the wandering eyes of outsiders. Sliding doors are even larger than French doors and may need different blinds or window treatment in general from French doors. 

  1. Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are underrated for large windows and sliding doors. Sliding glass doors may be larger than the regular sizes that are offered for roller shades, roman shades, wood blinds, faux wood blinds, and cellular shades. Instead, this is where vertical blinds come into the conversation. Vertical blinds are blinds that are oriented vertically instead of horizontally, which can take away from bending when against the force of gravity. One of the biggest problems of putting large horizontal blinds on large windows is that they can bend. Especially wood blinds, faux wood blinds, and even roman shades. This is when vertical blinds come into play. Vertical blinds are meant to cover large windows and large doors such as sliding doors to allow for maximum privacy and coverage without compromise.


  1. Curtains or Drapery

Curtains or drapery allow for the most elegant sliding door covering while also maximizing privacy and utility. Curtains are free flowing fabric that are not made of material like plastic, wood, or anything that is rigid. The only rigid part of a curtain or drape is the top part that holds the curtain. Curtains and drapery are also suited for sliding doors because of their fluidity and ability to be flexible.
