The Benefits of Panel Blinds for your Home

Panel Blinds are still a popular choice for sliding doors, particularly in homes where open plan living has become a staple design aspect of the home layout. Although blending the outside with the inside has its many benefits, it may also come with the predicament of choosing what to install on those big glass sliding doors. Selecting a door furnishing that won’t be too bulky or indeed too costly is one of the main factors many take into consideration. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at some of the key benefits of panel blinds for your home.

One of the main assets that panel blinds offer is their versatility and functionality, in that they can be adapted to suit any space. Whether you want to control light and privacy or simply add a touch of style, the array of colour and fabric options gives you flexibility of choice to suit the space and your individual needs. Fusion Shutters and Blinds offer panel blinds in both block-out and translucent fabrics and a variety of panel widths.

Controlled with a wand, the “no-chain” look of Panel Blinds is sleek and clean and provides a modern aesthetic to any room, a contemporary selection to rival the traditional vertical blind. Undoubtedly, the absence of chains and sometimes messy cords is a great option for homes with small children or pets, reducing any safety concerns. These blinds are a clean and orderly option in that they stack neatly to the side when open, without intruding on too much space in the home.

Offering some additional thermal and UV protection, panel blinds are available in sunscreen fabrics too. Ranging from 3% – 10% “openness”, this allows your desired amount of light through the fabric weave. These particular textiles also stretch as far as 3 metres wide as a single piece.

Panel blinds are also a great option if you are looking for something that is easy to maintain. They don’t require any special cleaning products or treatments, simply use a duster or soft cloth to remove any dust or blemishes and with simple velcro removal this task is made a breeze. With their durability, you can rest assured they will last for many years.

If you’re looking for a door treatment that will add both style and function to your home, with simple operation and low upkeep, panel blinds are a fantastic option.
