Top 6 blinds for bi-folding doors

1 Allusion blinds

Allusion blinds are ideal for bi-folding doors, a combination of a Voile and solid curtain, with the versatility of a blind. With allusion blinds, you can just walk through the fabric when your bi-folding doors are open. This ease of movement is down to the soft panes which are made of sheer and opaque textured fabric. Allusion blinds, while filtering the light, also enable you to see outside clearly. But you don’t need to compromise on privacy. By rotating the louvres, you can adjust privacy levels and also control the light. Not only are allusion blinds a must for bi-folding doors, but from a functional perspective they also look super stylish.

3 Vertical blinds
