How To Find The Perfect Custom Blinds To Fit A Door

Posted by QuickFit Blinds & Curtains on 12th Jan 2017

Do you have beautiful French doors in your home? They can be an exquisite front entry or a beautiful escape to the backyard. If, however, the French doors are on the exterior of your home, you most likely want beautiful window treatments to accompany them for your privacy. French doors are not the only reason you may need window treatments; any door that has large windows should be covered if you want to maintain full privacy.

As a good solution to this privacy problem, QuickFit recommends shopping online for blinds or curtains. We sell custom curtains that will surely fit even the most unique doors and doorway shapes, sizes, and styles throughout your home.

Creating Custom Blinds Fit For Your Door

Made-to-measure blinds are a popular choice at QuickFit. All of the custom blinds that we stock at QuickFit are actually roller blinds. These blinds come in a variety of colours and can be easily created for any width or length. 

In truth, getting a good set of custom-made roller blinds are a great choice for French doors or other doors with windows because they can be mounted directly onto your door. The fabric of these blinds is also light and durable, so it can handle being swung open and closed multiple times a day.

On the other hand, a person may want curtains to hang above the entry. This can cause trouble because if someone comes in from outside and the curtains are drawn, the curtains can tear or wear in the same areas, decreasing their quality well before their usable lifespan actually ends.

The roller blinds we stock here at QuickFit also mostly come in neutral colours, making them incredibly easy to style. There are also two different types of blind panels available to all of our DIY designers, these being blockout blinds and sunscreen blinds. 

The blockout roller blinds eliminate sunlight from coming into the room, almost entirely. Contrastingly, sunscreen roller blinds provide privacy, but still allow sunlight to filter into your rooms through the blind shade. Both blockout and sunscreen blind panels are great choices for doors with windows that you would like to cover. If you'd like the best of both worlds, however, you could easily invest in a good set of double roller blinds, which includes one blockout blind panel layered on top of a sunscreen blind panel. 

How To Order Custom Blinds For Your Doors

As we stated earlier, both blockout and sunscreen roller blinds work great on windows or doors. However, it has to be said that as you shop through the different types of blinds available for your custom purchase, you will notice many examples on windows. Do not let this deter you from ordering these blind panels for your doors! All you have to do to ensure that the blind panels you purchase from us here at QuickFit are perfect for your doors and doorways, is to provide us with accurate measurements in millimetres. When you submit your measurements correctly, you will get the product you desire.

To order your blinds, you will first choose the colour and style of roller blind fabric. Once you select the blind panel you'd prefer, our order form will walk you through all of the measurements and decisions we need from you to make your custom blinds online. These measurements will include your preferred mount position (inside or outside the frame), width in mm (max 2,700), length drop that closely matches what you need (choose longer than what you need because trimming instructions will be included), colour of components, chain style, chain side (left or right), front or back roll, and quantity.

Decorating your French doors or other doors with windows is as easy as browsing through our online blinds collection, submitting your measurements, and finalizing your choice. We hope this little informative blog post helps you along the way!
