Adding patio doors to your home is a brilliant way to connect your inside space to your garden. As the weather starts to improve in the UK, you may be spending more time outside in your garden, patio doors make that even more appealing allowing you to gain access easily and quickly.

If you're looking to add some extra light to a room, patio doors are also an ideal option. Essentially you are installing a full length window in your home, adding some much needed sunshine in to your home.

Sounds good, why block it all out?

With all of the positives of patio doors, you may be wondering why would suggest putting blinds up.

Even if you have a stunning garden or some of the best views in the UK, from time to time we all want a little privacy. The British weather is also well known for being unpredictable. Whilst it's sunny, you will want to open your blinds but when the dark, cold weather rolls around, you can beat closing up your blinds and getting cosy.

Why choose blinds over curtains?

Blinds are ideal as the different options will allow you to control the amount of shading and privacy you get from your patio doors. From a simple twist of a wand to tilt your vertical blinds or a push down of spring loaded Perfect Fit roller blinds, you get complete say in how your home looks and feels.

Blinds are also much less clunky than heavy, thick curtain materials. Often we find that when you close your curtains you are completely closing off the outside, leaving you with complete darkness or often overly bright rooms with your curtains not helping at all.

Two Fantastic Options for Patio Blinds

Vertical Blinds

If you have a particularly large patio and sliding doors rather than french doors, you may prefer to opt for the classic yet timeless vertical blind. Vertical blinds are extremely economical options and in today's modern market they are available in a huge range of stunning fabrics and materials. You have the option of fully closing or opening your blinds or simply tilting the slat to suit your mood or the time of day.

Perfect Fit Blinds

Perfect Fit blinds are ideal for homes with new french doors or pods that look out onto the garden. They offer complete control over privacy and shading with each blind being individually controlled. Venetian and Roller blinds are our most popular ranges in the Perfect Fit System, with Venetian being the most practical for controlling shade and privacy due to the ability to control the slats with a simple, yet stylish wand.


There are lots more options available for patio blinds. Taking into account factors such as space, budget and styles the choices are seemingly endless. Blinds are a fantastic way to improve the look and feel of patio spaces, softening them slightly whilst also offering a huge range of functional features.
