Benefits of Built In Blinds

Built In BlindsIf you have ever had to clean traditional blinds you know how difficult and time consuming it can be. You also know it’s next to impossible to get them completely dust free. Blinds are great for light adjustment and privacy and now you have the option of getting windows and doors with built-in mini blinds that never have to be cleaned. Take a look at the basics of built-in blinds to decide if they’re right for your home.

These doors and windows are built with the blinds or shades fixed in between the glass panels. Most have a slide feature that makes raising and lowering the blinds very simple. The built-in blind feature is appealing for patio doors because you don’t have to deal with opening and closing traditional sliding door blinds to enter or exit.

As with any decision regarding your home it’s important to weigh both the pros and cons before installation. Choosing built-in blinds has distinct advantages and a few disadvantages to consider.


– The blinds will not get dirty and you won’t have to worry about cleaning them.

– Since they won’t collect dust they are often a good choice for those with allergies.

– There are no hanging cords to worry about. This is a benefit for people with small children and cats.

– They come pre-installed in the glass so you don’t have to hang anything.

– The slats cannot be damaged and will always be in perfect alignment.

– There is some evidence suggesting these interior blinds provide better insulation than hanging blinds making your windows more energy efficient.


– Replacing all of your windows / doors with this style can be expensive since they are a specialty design.

– You can’t change the blinds – what you buy is what you will have until you replace the windows.

– You may not have the same variety of blind options as you would with hanging blinds.
