Integral blinds are blinds that are fitted between the two panes of glass in a double glazed window or door. Not only do they look great, but they’re easy to clean, they offer great shading options and they even stop children and pets from being able to access pull cords. What more could you ask for? Here, we’ll look at how much integral blinds cost.

It’s hard to say exactly how much integral blinds cost as it will depend on a number of factors. Here are just a few:
- How many blinds you need.
- Which style of blind you choose.
- The colour.
- The size.
- The complexity of the work.
- The window or door opening system.
- How many opening vents there are.
Prices will also vary based on whether you get a brand new window or door fitted that has a built-in integral blind, or whether you choose to get an integral Venetian blind fitted to an existing double glazed unit.
How much do integral blinds in glass cost?
As a rough estimate, you’re looking at around £4,000 to get an integral blind fitted in a 3-pane bi-folding door. This includes both the supply and installation.
You can typically expect to pay less if you’re getting an integral blind fitted to a window as opposed to a door, but this will of course depend on the type of window.
Integral Venetian blinds
If you’re looking to get integral blinds fitted into an existing door or window, integral Venetian blinds are ideal. They can be fitted into any type of window or door, no matter how old your house is. This includes French doors, patio doors, bi-folding doors, conservatories, orangeries and more.
Venetian blinds are formed of horizontal slats, often made from wood or metal. The slats can be adjusted to let more or less light into a room, even when they’re lowered fully. So, they’re a great choice if you’re looking for a way to add more privacy to your home. Integral Venetian blinds will also keep your window sill uncluttered and prevent dust from gathering on the slats.

Can blinds between glass be repaired?
Not usually. Integral blinds are part of the glass, so if either the glass or the blind breaks, they’ll both need replacing.
Can existing double glazed doors have integral blinds installed?
Integral blinds are usually fitted into brand new units and doors, but you can keep your existing ones if you prefer. This usually means replacing the glass, although if your glass is suitable, you may be able to reuse it.
Can you get blinds inside double glazed windows?
Yes! Usually, this means replacing the glass with a new double glazed unit that has integral blinds. However, you can occasionally use your existing glass.
How do you use blinds between glass?
Wondering how you can control your integral blinds? This depends on what option you choose. Most will open or close at the touch of a button, or with a lever at the top of your window or door. However, you can also get integral blinds with solar control.
