Tips for French Door Blinds
You can use any type of window treatment for French doors, but there are some things you need to consider.

Your door will most likely have a handle that might get in the way of operating the window treatment. The solution is to buy shallow blinds that fit comfortably between the door and decorative handles. Most 1” blinds, roller shades and honeycomb shades will fit behind the door handle, assuming there is 1” clearance.
