Homes and gardens are enjoyed by millions around the world however they’re often seen as two district places where you leave one to enjoy the other. However, is it possible to decorate your home to have as seamless a transition as possible? The answer is yes, and in today’s blog we’ll be exploring how you can enjoy both spaces flawlessly.

Transitioning from home to garden

For many of us, we enter the garden via a run-of-the-mill door. Whether it leads from the kitchen or a living room, you can decorate your route to the outdoors with plenty of items. From potted plants to floral wallpaper or window furnishings, you can blend your spaces very easily.

If your spaces are connected with a patio or French door, you have even more design opportunities. Large doors like these are well suited to the aforementioned floral blinds but because they often open wide and are commonly used to let fresh air flood into a space, you have even more options!

Top 3 Blinds For Garden And Patio Doors

Vertical blinds on garden doors

Vertical blinds will help you to control the levels of light entering your home and giving you control over the relationship between light and privacy. Moreover, with the slats open, the air will be able to flow into a space while maintaining some level of privacy. For more info on these blinds, read our Vertical Blinds Buyers Guide.

Illusion blinds on garden doors

Illusion blinds are an excellent choice for French, patio or bi-fold doors. The innovative design of an illusion blind means light and air can enter the home without compromising on privacy at all. Moreover, the design of these amazing blinds will add an airy feel to the space’s overall décor. Browse our Illusion Blinds Buyers Guide here.

Panel blinds on garden doors

If you love the style of vertical blinds but want something a little more contemporary with a Japandi twist, look no further than panel blinds! Panel blinds stack very neatly so you can open them easily to exit and enter your home and enjoy your garden. Have a read of our Panel Blinds Buyers Guide for more info.

Transitioning from conservatory to garden

Millions around the UK enjoy a conservatory. This midpoint between garden and home can be decorated with plenty of lovely plants and again, window furnishings featuring all manner of flora. Moreover, with a lot of uPVC in most conservatories, you can enjoy easy to install Perfect Fit blinds.
