Bifold doors and French doors are becoming increasingly popular compared to traditional sliding doors. As the styles change, so does the need for products — like window blinds — that support functionality. While traditional vertical blinds are well-suited to sliding doors, they may not work as well on bifold or French doors.

You’ll find tips on what to keep in mind during your search, including different materials, properties and even patterns. Plus, you’ll learn how certain blind styles, including Perfect Fit blinds, are ideal for bifold doors.
