Window blinds are fairly ancient inventions. The Persians hung wet cloth on their windows to protect them from desert dust and to make indoor temperatures more bearable. The ancient Chinese fashioned bamboo slats to give them a screen of privacy. The Venetians, who traded with the inhabitants of the Middle East, borrowed this concept from the Persians and brought the invention to Paris because they needed to have a source of income by peddling their wares.
For sliding doors Roller Blinds are often the best option as they roll up tightly at the top and take up less space than other blinds types. With Venetian Blinds and Roman Blinds the slats or fabric can take up an additional 200mm when wound up to the top - this will take up valuable space in the walk through or it means you will have to install the blinds high above the top of the sliding doors. It is also essential to make sure that door handles do not obstruct the blinds movement. Roller Blinds can be reverse rolled away from the handle to miss any obstructions. When fitting on the face of the door, any product would be suitable, just remember to add around 200mm onto your drop measurement so that when the blind is wound up it is out of the way of the door area.
Aluminium Venetian Blinds are often used in kitchens and bathrooms and in business offices. Almost always Aluminium Venetian Blinds and sold with 25mm slats. This is due to the flexible nature of the Aluminium slat. Sometimes Aluminium Venetian Blinds are known as Mini Blinds.
