Advantages of Windows and Doors With Built-in Blinds

Windows and doors with built-in blinds are gaining in popularity, particularly for homes with sliding glass doors. Windows and doors with built-in blinds have many great advantages over traditional windows and doors.

Built-in Blinds Makes Cleaning Easy

The blinds built into windows and doors won’t collect dust like normal blinds. The built-in blinds are in a sealed area of the window/door, and the manufacturer takes great care to ensure that area doesn’t have dust or debris. These windows are a good option for homeowners and individuals who are concerned about allergens since traditional window treatments are hard to clean and tend to collect a lot of dust over time. Windows and doors with built-in eliminate the need for traditional window treatments helping decrease allergens.

No More Mishaps

Blinds are a strangling hazard for young children and can be quite dangerous if they get any of the cords wrapped around their neck when left unattended. When the blinds are in the window itself, you don’t need to worry about your children getting injured on the cords.

Pets, particularly cats love to play with cords and the actual blinds themselves. There are many hilarious images of cats online who get terribly wrapped up in blinds and even if your cat has enough dexterity not to get themselves stuck they can still cause damage to blinds over time. Cats may chew on the cords or destroy other parts of the blinds when trying to look outside.

Longevity of Blinds

Blinds that are within windows and doors will last longer due to not being exposed to the environment or outside factors. Also, many companies will treat the blinds to prevent yellowing due to the sun. Sliding glass doors with built-in blinds is a favorite for Chicago homeowners since the vertical blinds that so often accompany sliding glass doors get a lot of wear and tear damage, but when built-in this is eliminated entirely.

Added Insulation

If you are worried about energy efficiency and heat loss due to windows and doors, then windows and doors with built-in blinds are a top option. The built-in blinds add little extra insulation to windows and doors.
