There are lots of blind types that look great on French doors, but as well as looking good, you also need to think about how you use your French doors, and whether your blinds need to have practical benefits in addition to stylish looks. Here are our top picks for French doors:

Best blinds for family spaces

Roller blinds are a stylish and practical choice for French doors. Available in a range of gorgeous styles and performance fabrics, including moisture-resistant and blackout options, Roller blinds are sleek and streamlined, giving you flexible control over light, with the added benefit of rolling away neatly when you want to fully open your doors.

Best blinds for uPVC French doors

If your French doors are in regular use, you should consider Perfect Fit blinds. These are a no drill solution for uPVC doors. They simply clip into place in your window frame and the blind sits neatly within this frame.

The great advantage of these blinds is that they become an integral part of the door, allowing you to open and close your door easily. Roller, Pleated and metal Venetian blinds can all be fitted into a Perfect Fit frame.

Best blinds for cosiness

Our beautiful made-to-measure Roman blinds will fit your doors perfectly, and add cosiness and softness to your space. They also offer thermal benefits, since they are very effective in reducing heat loss through the expanses of glass on your doors. Choose from a wide range of plain or patterned colours to suit your tastes.


Best blinds for layering

Made with the same fabric as curtains, Roman blinds create a soft and sophisticated finish at the window that really complements period styling. Fully lined as standard, you can also upgrade to an interlining if you wish. This creates a fuller finish and an extra cosy feel.

Best blinds for versatility

If your French doors are overlooked by neighbouring properties, Vertical blinds will allow light in but keep prying eyes out of your home. They’re available in extra wide widths so are suitable for large expanses of glass and can even be fitted to sloping windows.

With a choice of contemporary prints and performance fabrics, including blackout, moisture-resistant and Teflon coated PVC, Vertical blinds are ideal for French doors in any space.
