French Door Blinds & French Door Window Treatments
- Consider door shape and position of handles
- Pick shallow treatments that hang close to the door
- 1" wood blinds and roller shades are ideal
- Hold down brackets are good for regularly shut shades
- Choose cordless for a sleek look and easy control
French doors have decorative handles that could interfere with the operation of door blinds or shades, so you'll want to choose a window treatment that is not very deep with an outside mount. If you plan on regularly raising and lowering your shade, go cordless to avoid getting cords tangled up on the door handle while also increasing child and pet safety. If you plan on leaving the shade down, you should select the hold down brackets when customizing your blind. These are installed on the door to keep the bottom of the shade in place.

French Doors FAQ
There are many categories from which to choose when deciding on the right window covering for French doors. Cellular shades, roller shades, and thin traditional blinds are all popular choices that can be customized to perfectly match your decorating style and lifestyle. We recommend ordering free samples to see your favorites up-close-and-personal or start customizing online using our blind builder.
Almost any style of window covering will work to enhance the beauty of your French door. We recommend 1-inch wood blinds, cellular, solar or roller shades. When deciding which window covering would best, there are a few factors to consider. As always, our customer care team is available for you online or over the phone if you have any questions.
Ideally, you’ll want something thin that hangs close to the glass on your door. A cordless lift is likely going to be ideal for a clean, clutter-free look. You should also make note of the position and size of your door handles, as those could obstruct your window covering. Also, consider including hold down brackets for shades that will remain shut regularly to help keep the shade in place.
All of our products at Blindsgalore are completely custom, down to the eighth of an inch, so the sizing will depend on your specific French door and the area you would like to cover. Make sure to account for the door handles and if there is any molding around the glass of your French door. If you have questions about measuring or which window treatment would work best in your space, don’t hesitate to contact our customer care experts.

By Jeff in FL from Florida
This was a big purchase for us so we did not tread lightly. These blinds are very nice looking and work with no issues. They are pretty darn quiet too. I will be purchasing a bunch more of these soon.View this product

We looked online for many different types of motorized shades. We received numerous samples from multiple vendors.. All were more expensive and none had the quality look/feel we were looking for - not to mention the 'Neo smart hub' that allowed us to schedule/operate everything from our phones. We have now purchased roller shades for 16 rather large windows - and we can't be happier. Ease of installation - My husband and I installed the shades and they were pretty easy to install once you get the hang of it. If you have any levers that stick out on your window and 'hang' a little - we put tape on the back to keep it from catching. Quality - The fabric we picked looks great and has a bit of a 'linen weave' type look which makes it look much nicer than just basic fabrics competitors were offering. Motorized operation - They also have a 14 channel remote if you are interested. I also recommend getting the solar shades for your windows really high up. The Neo Smart hub was also very easy to install. We did have 1 issue out of the 16 after a few weeks after installation. Blindsgalore and the manufacturer were awesome - sent us entirely new replacement shade within 24 hours of me calling. Seriously these people rock - from assistance with your first installation, to sales, to help when something goes a little wrong. We keep saying this is one of the best improvements we have made to our home in the last 5 years. I waited to write this review approx 2 full months after we installed first 10 roller shades were installed- and they all still work perfectly on schedule like clockwork... Save yourself some time - and just figure out what fabric you want to order from these guys! :)View this product
