Best Blinds for Sliding Doors

Opening your sliding doors to step out onto your patio or into your garden is one of life’s underrated luxuries, and here at Humberside Sunblinds, we’re going to look at the best blinds for sliding doors to help you choose which one is right for you.

Depending on what your main focus is for your sliding door blinds, there’s a range of blind types that may suit your needs. We’ll split this post into sections to make it easier to determine the most suitable blind for your patio doors. 


If privacy is your main concern, then you’ll need a blind that keeps out prying eyes. However, you do not want to completely darken your room when the blinds are shut. Vertical blinds are perfect for this: light fades through the floaty material but the blinds are thick enough to stop people peering in. Countless patterns, styles and colours are available for your vertical blinds. Furthermore, you won’t have to sacrifice your interior design dreams to get the best blinds.

Light control

Want the morning sun to illuminate your kitchen or living room every day? There’s a blind for that. A range of blinds provide users with the ability to tweak how much light filters through, but perhaps none as effectively or intuitively as Vision blinds. Their unique function is underpinned by two types of horizontal strips – opaque and translucent. To let light filter through, the opaque and translucent strips can be used in tandem. Furthermore, the opaque strips can be used together to shut light out.  

Entry and exit

When you choose your blinds for sliding doors, it’s also important to remember that you need to avoid blinds that hamper entering and exiting the property. Certain blinds may look nice, but they might be clunky to move. This, in turn, dampens the ambience and sense of elegance associated with patio blinds. Allusion blinds are beautiful, floaty blinds that provide the functionality you require but look fantastic even when you part them to pass through.

Allusion blinds are thin enough to let light through without compromising your privacy. This, in turn, makes them a fantastic option for patio blinds. 

Selecting the blinds for your sliding doors should be treated with as much care as selecting blinds for your bedroom window. Here at Humberside Sunblinds we’re proud to give you the choice between a huge range of high quality patio blinds.
