If you are investing in aluminium bifold or sliding patio doors, one set of accessories you might like to add to the design are integrated blinds.
What are these? Rather than fitting on the outside of your doors, integrated blinds are built into the glazing between the panels of glass. It’s a design that looks fantastic and is easier to maintain that external blinds.
Not only do they give you control over the amount of light you get in your room and improve privacy, integrated blinds also provide a little extra insulation. That means your energy efficiency will be improved and that may well lower you utility bills.
