Whilst both are stunning options, the main difference between French Doors and Sliding Patio Doors is the way they open.
French doors are double doors that swing on hinges, while sliding patio doors slide on a track along the wall.
At Luxaflex® we make window coverings that work on both door types. If you have French doors, browse our ideas page

The slimline design of roller blinds when raised, also reveals all the glory of your views.
Are Patio Doors Energy Efficient?
Large patio doors are great for letting in lots of natural light but too much warm sun or cold glass can make rooms uncomfortably warm or cool and not energy efficient.
Our Duette® Blinds with a unique honeycomb cell that traps the air, making rooms cooler in summer and warmer in winter, keeping your valuable heating energy in your home.
Duette® fits many window types including skylights. This means you can coordinate your whole room style in the same fabric.
And for convenience and safety, you can choose cordless control or smart home operation to control your patio door blinds.
The Best Privacy Solution For Patio Doors
If your home is overlooked by neighbours, Vertical Blinds are a practical and stylish choice for patio doors as the vanes can be adjusted to give you more privacy whilst still letting in light when you need it.
And, our smart home control enhances your privacy even further, letting you create privacy settings that move your window coverings automatically even when you're not at home.
The width of your windows is not a problem as our Vertical Blinds can be made in virtually any size and shape of a patio door.
And our sealed-in bottom plate design eliminates the need for stabilising chain links along the bottom of the vertical blind. This is ideal for high-traffic windows or doorways where children and pets might be moving through.
Venetian Blinds for Patio Doors
Flexible Venetian Blinds can create just the right design balance to match the scale of your patio door and room style.
The slats can be adjusted precisely for privacy and light management, but if you want to focus on your view, our unique MegaView® design will close and tilt just like a normal blind, but when open reveal twice the view to the outside.
And with a choice of subtle colours to the latest textures and smart home controls, Venetian Blinds can create the ultimate contemporary style for patio doors.
Easy Access to Patio Doors
Patio doors often provide the key route to the garden so highly used especially in the summer.
If accessing your door handle is important, our FrameFit ™ and TruFit® systems are ideal as they won’t affect the opening or closing of the door.
These clever solutions are ideal for uPVC windows as no drilling is required, as the blinds sit neatly inside the window panel. As there are no operating chains, FrameFit™ and TruFit® are inherently child-safe.
Depending on your style preference you can choose from Roller, Pleated, Venetian blinds or energy-saving Duette® blinds. Whatever style you choose, your blind will become an integral part of your door with a sleek modern style.
Patio Door Blinds for Light Control
Managing light levels when you have large patio doors can be tricky but our Twist® Day & Night blinds offer a great solution for every room, but especially multipurpose rooms.
Combining two fabrics, one sheer and one opaque means you can adjust your Twist® blinds to give you flexible light and privacy control when you need it.
Easy to use, you can open and close your Twist® blinds like Roller blind, to let in light or in the evening to have complete privacy, room darkening, and a cosy feeling.
All the controls are hidden from view, so they don’t detract from the sharp design style that day and night blinds are known for.
