Perfect fit blinds are our top choice for the type of blind for bifolds you should choose.

Rooms with bifold doors often get high levels of sunlight, and in summer months this can get very warm or can be uncomfortably bright. Perfect fit blinds are thin, profile blinds that you fit onto the glass of your bifold doors.

  • Vertical blinds –– are made from a row of vertical blinds. They are often seen in older homes/offices. The fabric can stack, sometimes referred to as ‘bunching’ on the left or right side. Or, it can split in the middle of vertical blinds and evenly collect at either side of the window frame.
  • Roller blinds –– are common for windows but can be challenging to operate when used with bifold doors. Most roller blinds are available with a maximum width of three metres. If your bifold door is wider than three metres, you may need to purchase two sets of roller blinds to cover the glass.
  • Integral blinds –– are integrated into the glass unit. Integral blinds are typically horizontal blinds that are carefully fitted between the glazing in double or triple-glazed bifold doors. Integral blinds are a permanent solution and do not allow you to change the looks or style of the blinds once fitted.
  • Venetian blind –– are a problematic choice for bifold doors as they have a maximum width of 240mm, and you cannot cover a wide gap between sets of Venetian blinds. Also, Venetian blinds can be heavy, so lifting and lowering the blinds can feel like a difficult task.

Match the blind colour to the window trim

Consider matching the shade closest to your bifold door frame. At Vufold, we have a wide range of bifold door collections that are available in different shades.

Coordinate with your wall colour

Another option is matching the bifold blinds to your adjacent walls. However, this may prove difficult depending on what colour your wall is.
