Vertical Patio Door Blinds

Vertical patio blinds are functional and decorative. Many people have horizontal blinds on their patio doors and will find that the ‘stack’ to be quite unattractive and bulky. This is because depending on the type of blind you have, it is much different than blinds on your window because there is so much more material there to cover a door. Sure they look nice when they are closed, but when you go to open them, you may run into some issues. Vertical patio blinds are probably your best option on patio doors for this reason.

 

Fabric Vertical Blinds

Fabric vertical blinds are decorative and elegant for large patio doors. Fabrics are ideal for reducing glare from the sun and are perfect for dining rooms and sitting rooms. These are great for privacy.

Wood Vertical Blinds

Wood vertical blinds besides being beautiful and giving you that outdoor feeling, are great if you are looking for a stained color. They are not as heavy as faux wood but real wood will warp in high humidity atmospheres.

Faux Wood Vertical Blinds

Faux wood is made of synthetic vinyl materials and is very popular these days and give all rooms a comfortable feel. They resist warping and fading unlike natural wood blinds, and you can only trully tell the difference from real wood by the texture and feel. The different colors and grains can be matched to your furniture and floors and are great for contrasting colors as well.

 

Preforated Vertical Blinds

Preforated blinds have thousands of tiny holes allowing a soft view of the outside and let in a small amount of light that creates a good sophisticated look to the inside of your home.

Mylar Vertical Blinds

Mylar blinds are very bold and shiney. They convey a mirrored finish. They are great for making a small room appear larger and give a retro look when used in this way.

Vinyl Vertical Blinds

Vinyl blinds of course are today’s most popular. Especially common in homes with families and pets since they are so easy to manage and clean. Vinyl insulates and darkens the rooms and you will find most homes have vinyl blinds on their patio doors.

 

No matter which type of vertical blind is best for you, having vertical blinds on your patio doors are a perfect choice. You can choose styles for classy to flashy, or elegant and smooth. Either way, vertical is the best choice for most homes.
