Ready to make your bifolds beautiful? Let us show you how our blinds and curtains can help.

Simple steps for beautiful bifolds

We love bifold doors. They give gloriously open access to the outdoors and an expansive feeling inside, but the width of the doors and their concertina style means they can be tricky to dress as there can be limited space to fit a product. You’ll want something that keeps out the way of your doors and doesn’t impact their movement. So you’ll need a product that fits within the door frames, goes over to one side or that rises up out of the way. In this video, we talk you through our blinds and curtains that can help your bifolds look beautiful.

Best for small spaces

Bifold doors really look their best with an individual blind on each door. And with so many panes to cover, your blinds will become a key design feature, so you should carefully consider the colour and design of your chosen blind. Pleated blinds are a great choice for bifold doors.

The delicate fabrics and textures work well with both contemporary and traditional styling, and they’re available in lots of fabulous shades and patterns for a bold or neutral scheme.

Best for temperature control

Did you know, 18% of a typical home’s heat is lost through its windows and doors?

We've got a brilliant solution for reducing heat loss through your bifold doors. Our INTU Micro Hive blinds have a honeycomb structure that traps the air, to help insulate your home in winter and cool it down in summer. 

To keep things extra snug, pair INTU blinds with curtains. The extra layer at your doors will help stop any pesky draughts, and you'll get a really stylish look too. 

 

 

Best for seasonal comfort

Venetian blinds can add a lovely lustre to your bifold doors and are really practical for everyday living.

They are also available in an exciting range of finishes and textures, including metallic, pearl and sheer, so are a good option if you are looking to create an individual, yet hardwearing look in your home.

 

Best for busy homes

For kitchens and dining areas particularly, a Roller blind is an ideal window covering for your bifold doors. Roller blinds look great and are so practical.

They are available in moisture-resistant, wipeable, dim-out, flame-retardant and blackout fabrics to suit even the most heavy use areas. Choose from a wide range of fun prints, plain, striped or neutral shades.
