Patio Door Curtains….Easy Does It!

jasa desain rumah minimalis – The case for curtains over patio door blinds is compelling. I sit well and truly on the fence when it comes to that debate. Reason is simple – both have merit in different decorative settings.  But for the patio door blind fan club, let me play devil’s advocate for just a while.

Here are 5 reasons to choose curtains over blinds for your patio door:

Curtains add decorative class to your room

If you are looking for something to add some more spice and character to your room, curtains are generally a better choice over blinds.

This doesn’t just stop with the actual textile which is available in thousand of colours and patterns, but also refer to the curtain poles. Poles are varied and can also give an extra boost to your room, e.g. metal curtain poles with patterns, wood poles, etc.

It doesn’t stop there either. With blinds a border is generally lacking that is superbly created by with curtains. Blinds only cover the patio door area, whereas curtains can also be used as extra decoration with the way in which it’s assembled and presented.

Effortless maintenance

Although some blinds are easy to clean y just using a household duster, others are definitely not. Some patio door blinds are household dust collectors that sometimes require hours to clean. This is especially true for some horizontal blinds. Curtains are different. The poles require little work, whilst cleaning the curtains itself is as easy as vacuuming your living room.

Easy decorative transition

Blinds require installation work. Granted, some install fairly rapidly without really breaking a sweat, but for the most part it’s a slight chore.

This basically means that redecorating your room with your blinds as the pivotal point is more than a split-second decision.

Curtains can easily be replaced with another set and in turn instantaneously transform your room’s look and feel.Some homeowners do this seasonally. It can be done at little cost with even less effort.

Dependable with a lower cost basis

Ever had some of the wires and strings of your patio blinds jam or crack? This is a sometimes annoying feature of patio door blinds. Some of the blind’s accessories are fragile and of poor quality, causing them to break easily. Curtain poles on the other hand tend to last for years without giving any problems. Choosing patio door curtains therefore means a more reliable window treatment that will cost you less in the long run.


Even though some patio door blinds provide the benefit of insulation, most types do not have the ‘oomph’ of patio door curtains when it comes to keeping the cold or heat outside and blocking unwanted noises. Curtains can also be lined with thicker materials to enhance heat insulation.

These are some of the reasons why you as homeowner may choose curtains instead of blinds. As I said however, the debate rages on and no one seems to be winning. Both these patio door window treatments have great advantages and it really depends on what you are looking for.
