    The entryways to our homes each have unique appeal. Sliding glass doors and French doors add aesthetic value and functionality to our exterior and interior living spaces. When you choose the best blinds for your sliding glass doors or French doors, you do not want to cover the intrinsic beauty of the door. Dollar Curtains + Blinds has the best option for every style and function for your door treatments.

    Blinds for French Doors

    Elegant French doors are a focal point in your home, for an accentuated exterior view and a remarkable interior aesthetic appeal. The timeless design of hinged and framed, glass panel double doors combines function with style. French doors each swing open, typically projecting outwards, to provide unobstructed access to your exterior living space. When closed, French doors are secured with cover splines where the double doors adjoin, weather stripping, and multi-point locks. Choosing the best blinds for your French doors is no easy task! You want to highlight French doors, not simply cover them.

    Roller Blinds

    Roller blinds are sleek, adorning your classic French door with a modern twist. Customised roller blinds are available with a variety of fabric features. Choose block out fabric for room darkening when roller blinds are down. Sunscreen protection fabric will provide 80% to 97% UV protection to your home's interior when blinds are drawn. If you prefer light diffusion through closed blinds, choose a translucent or sheer fabric. Translucent fabrics pleasantly diffuse natural daylight as it enters your home. Sheer fabrics softly filter daylight through an open weave, decorative pattern. You maintain privacy no matter your fabric choice, while your French doors are treated with the utmost style.

    Designed for precision operation, our roller blinds are equipped with the Rollease Acmeda hardware system. Rollease Acmeda systems enable you smooth rolling control via flawless chain roll, child safe spring loaded roll, or motorisation. Roller blinds are fuss-free, with low maintenance that will keep your French doors looking sharp for many years.

    Roller blinds are a perfect fit for French doors as they can be installed at the top of the door and when drawn open, or rolled up, they have a slimline fit which makes their presence not obvious. This assists in allowing you to maximise the natural light entering your home through the doors and also ensures outside views are not obstructed.

    Soft + Hard Roman Blinds

    Ornate, pleated folds of raised Roman blinds create a soft layered look adding warmth and delicacy to your French doors.

    • Soft Roman blinds are constructed with 100% Australian made lining for added stability and insulation. Lightweight, UV treated exclusive fibreglass battens provide structure with easy lifting capability. Soft Roman blinds can accommodate any width French doors by achieving layered lifts without twisting, curling, or cupping. You can choose an easy lifting mechanism of smooth rolling chain, heavy-duty chord lock, or motorisation.
    • Hard Roman blinds are designed with crisp, clean fabrics to create a seamlessly tailored finish. Batten design and symmetrically spaced panels ensure zero light leakage through evenly spaced panels. Smooth operation is achieved with an SS38 chain controlled system.

    Roman blinds are a great option for French doors due to their more traditional style which suits the classic style of French doors.

    Blinds for Sliding Glass Doors

    Sliding glass doors enable you a broad view of your exterior living space. Patio doors, or sliding doors, are double glass panels installed as one stationary panel and one sliding panel. Patio doors do not protrude from the wall when opened rather, they slide aside to provide access through half of the door's framed space. Space saving, both sliding doors run along a parallel track. Multi-point locks and anti-lift devices keep patio doors secure when closed. Choosing blinds for sliding glass doors is no easy task! You want to optimise your natural light while maintaining privacy.

    Vertical Blinds

    Versatile and stylish, vertical blinds give you complete control of natural light direction and privacy with the appeal of modern decor. Blackout, translucent, and sunscreen fabrics are available for vertical blinds. Customise your patio door blinds by selecting from 89 mm or 127 mm blade widths. Vertical blinds can be installed inside the door frame or on the architrave bordering the door. Fully stacked, open vertical blinds leave you with an unobstructed view of the patio or garden. The EOS Helix Vertical Track System enhances the efficiency and functionality of your blinds, giving you control with the use of a traversing wand. No more cluttered, hanging chains. With the wand, blinds look sleek and have the utmost child safety.

    Panel Blinds

    Modern panel blinds are an excellent option to create a relaxed look on patio doors. Mix and match panel and track designs with numerous choices of fabric colours, patterns, and textures and track colours and patterns. Glide panel blinds across your door to control natural light and privacy or stack panels for ultimate viewing. Panels can be installed inside the door frame or outside the door frame and affixed to glide in sequence from right to left or from left to right. You will have ease of operation with use of chord lock or child safe transversing wand. Dollar Curtains + Blinds has an expansive range of panel blinds for sliding doors to choose from.

    Contact Dollar Curtains + Blinds today for a free in-home measurement and quote! We guarantee we will have a blind or shade that is the perfect match for your French or sliding doors.

    Perfect curtains suited for your bedroom can stir a lively ambience to a rather reserved environment. Interior design often presents challenges to homeowners who are unable to zero down on the exact type of curtain that can complement and illuminate their most private living space. With too many factors to weigh in, what ultimately informs the choice of the curtain to install in your bedroom? These valuable tips are essential when shopping for bedroom curtains.

    Various types of curtains that are a perfect fit for bedrooms

    Depending on the style you prefer, you can find a range of curtain designs that will be a perfect match for your bedroom. Check out this list of common curtains that are specially designed for bedroom spaces:

    Blockout curtains

    Blockout or blackout curtains, commonly referred too as drapes, are a no brainer for a bedroom. They are excellent for blocking out light and allow for complete night-time privacy when drawn closed. When selecting a high-quality fabric and attaching thermal lining behind, you can also enjoy the added benefits of thermal and sound insulation along with savings on energy bills.

    Sheer curtains

    These types of transparent or see-through curtains allow a lot of light, and hence, many people may think they are not ideal for a bedroom space given that is where you are looking for more privacy. However sheer curtains are perfect for bedrooms when used in a layered format with block out roller blinds or block out curtains layered behind. This allows you to enjoy the diffused light through airy sheer curtains during the day but also have the benefits of light control and privacy at night time.

    Double curtains

    Double or dual curtains are one of the most popular choices for bedroom curtains. These curtains combine both a blockout and sheer curtain on the one bedroom. This allows for control of each curtain in a separate action so one curtain can be used during the day and one during the night.

    Linen curtain

    The warm colour shades found in linen fabric gives out a relaxing feeling. Several styles and colours are available depending on your preference which can be made into the curtain of your choice.

    Box pleated curtains

    Due to their classy and sophisticated look, pleated curtains should be one of your top choices. When made in a block out fabric or used with a darkening lining, pleated curtains provide both visual and practical benefits to a bedroom.

    Swag and tails

    These curtains are designed for a more traditional look and are a top treatment layered over curtains similar to a pelmet but with more fabric draping across the top and sides. Swag and tails give a bedroom a opulent and elegant outlook.

    Canopy curtains

    Like the name suggests, canopy curtains feature hanging drapes that extend around a bed. These can be custom made to suit any size or shape bed and allow for added privacy and light control but more importantly create a beautiful resort style ambience to the space.

    How light and privacy concerns in your bedroom influence the choice of curtain

    If you desire to let in more light in your room, then go for sheer curtains. Not only are they made of transparent and thin materials to allow a considerable amount of natural light, but they also ventilate the room. As a result, privacy will be sacrificed for a sunlight setting however layering a blockout window covering underneath then controls the light and privacy when required.

    Blockout or blackout curtain is a great choice if you yearn for additional privacy and a less lit room. Due to their thick polyester fabric, they effectively restrict ambience noise and external light into a bedroom. Moreover, a blackout curtain features thermal weave fabric designed to insulate a room and keep the temperatures constant.

    The lined curtain has similar attributes to blackout curtains as they are good at blocking external light and noise and best for thermal insulation

    Factors to consider when selecting the best curtains for your bedroom

    When it comes to the choice of a curtain, no size fits all. It all narrows down to the kind of ambience and expected scenery that your room seeks to nurture. Noise, light, privacy, fabric, colour, style, and pattern are just some of the elements that one should consider in a curtain intended for a bedroom.

    Finding one that will serve all your needs is hard and opting for custom made curtains is always the best option as purchasing any type of window covering is a long term investment. A dense curtain may have the best thermal and noise-insulating properties. If natural light is a priority, then, a less bulky curtain with a shade of light colours will be a bonus.

    Benefits of investing in quality curtains in the bedroom

    As a consumer, you need to evaluate the worth of the curtain you intend to buy and identify whether it will add substantial value to the theme of your bedroom. Is it even worth to furnish your bedroom with a modern curtain? Here is what you are poised to gain from donning a blind in your room:

    • Heavy-duty curtains assist in controlling a room's temperature to keep your home warm through winter and cool through summer.
    • You can enjoy enhanced privacy from outdoor interference.
    • Curtains act as a barrier against dust entering the bedroom.
    • They regulate external light within the room.
