Blinds for French Doors.

Elegant french doors are a focal point in your home, creating an accentuated exterior view and a remarkable interior aesthetic appeal.

The timeless design of hinged and framed, glass panel double doors combines function with style. French doors each swing open, typically projecting outwards, to provide unobstructed access to your exterior living space.


When closed, French doors are secured with cover splines where the double doors adjoin, weather stripping, and multi-point locks.


Choosing the best window coverings for your French doors is no easy task! You want to highlight French doors, not simply cover them.



Roller Blinds.

Roller Blinds are sleek, adorning your classic French door with a modern twist. Customised Roller Blinds are available with a variety of fabric features. Choose blockout fabric for room darkening when Roller Blinds are down. Sunscreen protection fabric will provide 80% to 97% UV protection to your home’s interior when Blinds are drawn.


If you prefer light diffusion through closed Blinds, choose a translucent or sheer fabric. Translucent fabrics pleasantly diffuse natural daylight as it enters your home. Sheer fabrics softly filter daylight through an open weave, decorative pattern. You maintain privacy no matter your fabric choice, while your French doors are treated with the utmost style.


Roller Blinds are a perfect fit for French doors as they can be installed at the top of the door and when drawn open, or rolled up, they have a slimline fit which makes their presence not obvious. This assists in allowing you to maximise the natural light entering your home through the doors and also ensures outside views are not obstructed. Roller Blinds are fuss-free, with low maintenance that will keep your French doors looking sharp for many years.

Roman Blinds.

Ornate, pleated folds of raised Roman Blinds create a soft layered look adding warmth and delicacy to your French doors.

  • Soft Roman blinds are constructed with 100% Australian made lining for added stability and insulation. Lightweight, UV treated exclusive fibreglass battens provide structure with easy lifting capability. Soft Roman blinds can accommodate any width French doors by achieving layered lifts without twisting, curling, or cupping. You can choose an easy lifting mechanism of smooth rolling chain, heavy-duty chord lock, or motorisation.
  • Hard Roman blinds are designed with crisp, clean fabrics to create a seamlessly tailored finish. Batten design and symmetrically spaced panels ensure zero light leakage through evenly spaced panels. Smooth operation is achieved with an SS38 chain controlled system.

Roman blinds are a great option for French doors due to their more traditional style which suits the classic style of French doors.

Blinds for sliding glass doors.

Sliding glass doors enable you a broad view of your exterior living space. Patio doors, or sliding doors, are double glass panels installed as one stationary panel and one sliding panel.

Patio doors do not protrude from the wall when opened rather, they slide aside to provide access through half of the door’s framed space. Space saving, both sliding doors run along a parallel track. Multi-point locks and anti-lift devices keep patio doors secure when closed.

Choosing Blinds for sliding glass doors is no easy task! You want to optimise your natural light while maintaining privacy.
