Problem Solver: Patio door and window blinds

We love solving your window woes. In our problem solver series, we give advice on those burning questions. This time, Melanie asks how to get her patio door and attached windows looking beautiful, while still keeping things practical.

Dear Web-Blinds,


With the nights drawing in, the undressed patio door and attached window in my kitchen are feeling a bit bleak. But with a toddler running around and another one on the way, cords are out of the question, particularly for the patio door where the glazing nearly reaches the floor. What can I put at the window that’s stylish yet still practical?

Staring into the abyss,


Dear Melanie,

We’ve got just the thing. Introducing Perfect Fit blinds. Loads of our customers love to put Perfect Fit blinds at their patio doors, and they’re great for the adjoining windows too.

If you’ve not heard of the system, it’s pretty nifty. It’s made for uPVC window frames, with the specially designed frame clipping in without the need for drilling (which perfect for you, means no cords).

They’ll stop that horrible feeling that you’re staring out into complete darkness. And on our site, you can choose between Venetian and Pleated options.

Pleated are lovely for adding a touch of softness – and as the sun shines, you’ll get a warm glow effect. And Venetians look sleek and neat, and provide the added benefit of privacy control as you can tilt the slats. So take your pick.

Hoping to be the light at the end of the tunnel,


Melanie’s patio door gets the Perfect Fit

It’s great to be able to solve a window woe, and even better when we get a snoop around afterwards.

“With there being so many windows in the kitchen” explains Melanie, “I wanted to be able to use the blinds to allow light in but block out direct light and help reduce heat in the summer.

“I was really taken with Web-Blinds’ suggestion of Perfect Fit blinds, and with light control in mind, Venetians just made sense for the space.

“I love the way they create a really uncluttered effect, and dress each individual window pane really neatly. They look gorgeous and really finish the kitchen off!”
