We’re seeing more and more properties with uPVC doors and windows. It’s easy to see why. They offer great insulation, fire resistance and have excellent safety features. They’re also very cost effective compared to other types of doors and windows. They also give you more choice when it comes to blinds. Here’s our guide to finding the perfect fit.
There are a wide range of different blinds that you could choose to fit to your uPVC doors and windows such as those found in conservatories. They look great and we can design them to fit your windows exactly. Blinds are an ideal choice for uPVC doors with glass panels as it allows you to shut out the night in the same way as you do with your windows.
However, traditional blinds aren’t always the best choice for uPVC doors unless you plan on never opening your doors once you’ve drawn the blinds. You can find yourself with the cords, or even the blinds themselves, getting caught up or getting in the way when you want to open or close the door.
Perfect Fit blinds are just that – a perfect fit. They’re designed to fit into the frames of uPVC doors and windows so they stay in place. They’re very versatile too. We often install them in conservatories as they can be fitted to sloping roof panels as well as the doors and windows. However, they can be used anywhere in the house. They’re particularly good for small rooms, for example in an en-suite bathroom where space is limited. We have a great range of colours and designs as well, so you can achieve the look you want.
This type of blind is also great if you have children at home. They fit exactly and have short cords so there’s no risk of them getting tangled up.
You might be wondering whether fitting blinds directly into your uPVC window will be a complicated process. In fact, it’s really quick and easy. There’s a frame that sits between the glass and the window frame and we can fit the blind straight into that. It just slots in so there’s no drilling involved and no mess.
That also means that the work can be completed quickly so you can start enjoying your lovely new blinds straight away.
It’s no surprise that uPVC doors and windows are becoming more popular. Builders have been putting them into new build houses for years, mainly because they’re cheaper to install than other windows and doors. We’re all becoming more aware of environmental issues and uPVC helps to insulate your house and prevent energy from being wasted. Of course, that doesn’t just benefit the environment. It means that your house stays warmer which helps you to save money on your heating bills.
