How to dress bifold doors

Beautiful blinds for bifold doors

Samantha Gibson by Samantha Gibson

We love the contemporary styling of glass extensions. However, the British weather can often come between us and our visions of the perfect summer’s day, flinging open our doors and enjoying the summer sun. And that’s why we’ve developed a range of  gorgeous blinds to tackle those temperamental UK temperatures. 


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.

By fitting a single blind to each of your bifold doors, you have the flexibility to adjust individual blinds to reduce glare, depending on the direction and height of the sun throughout the day. Our Thermashade Pleated blinds give you added control over temperature too. With clever honeycomb cells that actively trap the heat, you can ensure your space is comfortable all year round.

A Perfect Fit frame sits between the glazing and beading of uPVC windows so there is no need for drilling your bifold doors. The finish is incredibly neat and versatile. The blinds have no cords so are ideal if you have small children. They also become an integral part of the door, so there is no need to adjust them when you open and close your bifold doors.  Our Roller, Pleated and metal Venetian blinds can all be fitted in a PerfectFit frame.

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.

If you prefer a softer look , then Roman blinds are a popular choice. Roman blinds come in a wide range of gorgeous shades, patterns and fabrics, with optional thermal linings for a really cosy finish. You can also opt for an interlining for a more luxurious look.  Again, a Roman blind on each of your bifold doors will look best and provide you with the most flexibility.

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.
