The Advantages of Sliding Doors with Built-In Blinds


on December 27, 2016


Enclosed blinds are streamlined and beautiful. When you want your home to look its best, and love the latest in window technology, built-in blinds for your sliding glass doors.

Benefits of Built-In Blinds

There are many advantages to having enclosed blinds on a sliding glass door. Here are a few things to consider:

Built-in blinds stay clean

No need to clean the blinds!

Say goodbye to the painstaking task of cleaning your blinds. Dust is a tiny menace in your home that can lead to a variety of health problems including allergies. But when blinds are in between the panes of glass, they do not get dirty or dusty. The sealed environment inside the doors means you can cross cleaning the blinds off your to-do list, and your home can stay healthier and dust-free as a result.

Advantages of built-in blinds - no slamming

Blinds allow for light and privacy control.

Built-in between-the-glass blinds give you total control over your privacy and the amount of light that you allow in. Some styles of blinds can be tilted to let in a certain amount of light or pulled all the way up and out of the way for you to enjoy your views unobstructed. Motorized technology also makes lowering and raising the blinds quick and easy.

Blinds don't slam shut when the door is opened or closed.

Interior blinds are aesthetically pleasing in more ways than one. When you open and close the doors, the blinds stay neatly inside instead of flapping against the door and making noise. There is no slamming or noise to interfere with the peaceful ambiance of your home. Free hanging blinds can also be easily damaged, but enclosed blinds stay safely tucked between the glass.

Blinds reduce indoor allergens.

If you or anyone in your home suffers from allergies, between-the-glass blinds are a great choice. Ordinary window blinds inside the room can accumulate a lot of airborne allergens. Enclosed blinds are sandwiched between two panes of glass, so allergy-causing dust is unable to settle there.

Cordless blinds are safer for kids and pets.

When you have children and pets in the house, cordless blinds can be safer than conventional blinds and shades. Blinds with hanging cords can be a strangling risk for infants, toddlers, and pets. Between-the-glass blinds are opened and closed with a small operator that slides up and down to your desired point. There are no hanging cords involved so when you make this choice you can put those worries to rest.

There are many benefits to installing enclosed blinds in your sliding glass doors. There is a wide variety of options and therefore, costs, when you're thinking about your sliding glass doors. While built-in blinds might be more expensive than your basic vertical blinds, they might be more cost-effective than other patio door treatments. In the end, if you are looking for privacy, beauty, health and ease of care, between-the-glass blinds are a fantastic choice for any home.
