Curtains on bi-fold doors look stylish, block draughts and can improve the thermal efficiency of a home. Today, we’ll be taking a closer look at curtains for bi-fold doors, how they work, and the benefits they can bring to your home. Want to refresh your bi-fold doors? Read on…

The benefits of using curtains on bi-fold-doors

Bi-fold doors are a popular, modern solution enjoyed in many homes. The large glass panels used in bi-fold doors allow light to enter, like statement windows, and as a result they too benefit from well-chosen curtains.

These benefits fall into a few categories. From a stylish perspective, long curtains covering a bi-fold door will grant you an extra opportunity to add some colour or patterns into your decor, helping you to complete the look and feel of your home. Whether you look to add a rich red curtain to pop against soft naturals used on the walls or upholstery, or a striking white to add to a monochrome inspired room, a bi-fold door curtain will help you showcase your personality perfectly. For maximum impact, take time to find the perfect curtain pole too.


Curtains for bi-fold doors are also a practical choice. With light flooding into a room, a curtain will add privacy to your space and help block the view into your home. If the room that features a bi-fold door is used as a relaxation space where you enjoy movies, or even a downstairs bedroom, you can also add a free blackout lining to any curtain from Blinds Direct to keep the light out and help you relax or sleep better!

Thermal curtains for bi-fold doors

As with any window or door, heat can escape through even a tiny gap which means you pay more for energy while increasing your carbon footprint. With a well-chosen curtain however, you can better insulate your bi-fold doors. All quality curtains from Blinds Direct will help improve your green credentials and reduce heating costs, but with a thermal lining, you can make them even better.

Made from numerous layers of material to improve its thermal resistance, these curtains help to maintain a space’s warmth in a similar way to a winter coat! By creating dead-air space between you and the cold air, homes retain their heat, keeping you snug while the world outside stays chilly. You can learn more about thermal linings for curtains in our Curtains With Thermal Lining blog.

Due to our quality curtains being handmade in the UK to our customers’ exact specifications, we have the flexibility to add a free lining upgrade to every option in the range. As a result, you don’t have to compromise on style to enjoy the benefits of thermal curtains.
