Doors can be tricky to fit blinds to, and how your fit, the style of door and the style/property requirements of blind can make measuring and fitting your new door blind a bit confusing. We've made this handy quick guide to run through your options.

Blinds for a uPVC door?

Fitting blinds to your uPVC door (or window) has never been easier. That are two blind types that fit with a screw-free, drill-free method of fitting, by 'clipping' to your window beading. These blinds enable you to ensure no damage to the frame, and therefore saving your all-important warranty.

Perfect Fit © blinds utilise the window beading and small brackets that slip under the beading. The blind, sat within a frame, is then clipped onto the window. This smoothly avoids the mess of convention screw-on blinds. Available in various sub-types like; perfect fit roller blinds, perfect fit venetian blinds, perfect fir pleated blinds and perfect fit wooden blinds, Perfect Fit © Blinds sit flush to the window, and as such as favoured for their insulating properties and wide variarty of styles!

Blinds for a large width door?

If a large spanned door is your main concern, Vertical blinds or Panel blinds are a viable option as they are available over 2 metres width, provide ample light control and look great up.

If the 'stack' width of the slats (the amount of room they take up when fully open), is a concern, just send your proposed measurements into us and we can advise the approx. size the blind will take up.

Blinds for a door opening inwards?

Now this can be tricky. If your door opens inwards you need to work out what room you have to be able to fit the blind to the door. Measuring like you would a bay window, you need to ensure that the door opens enough to be usable, with a blind that isn't going to be squashed to oblivion.

A piece of card is a useful tool, stick to the door, open and take measurements. The next step is deciding your blind of choice.

If available blind depth is a stickler, then we recommend Venetian Blinds (they're durable to swingng around as well), as they can also be fitted with a tie-down clip, to keep in place when the door is moving. These are available on request with our friendly customer service team!

Pleated blinds are also around the same size as aluminium Venetians, but offer softer look in more styles and properties like blackout or solar-reflecting fabrics.
