A Buyer’s Guide to 29.5 in. x 79.5 in. Door with Blinds

Doors with blinds come in a variety of sizes. In most cases, homeowner’s seek out these doors for their patios, giving them the ability to expose the backyard or close the blinds for additional privacy and light control.

Ultimately, a 29.5 in. x 79.5 in. door with blinds is a nonstandard size. Most exterior doorways are a minimum of 32 inches wide, with many being at least 36. However, some are as slim as 30 inches, so doors in that width aren’t as challenging to find as a person may believe.

Additionally, 80 inches is the most common height based on current building codes. You can find shorter options, but 79.5 inches high certainly isn’t the standard.

Sizing

Before you purchase a door, you need to make sure you have the proper dimensions. 29.5 in. x 79.5 in. is just shy of the standard, so remeasure your doorway to make sure those numbers are accurate. In some cases, the existing door may be somewhat loose in the frame, so checking the doorway itself and not the current door is the best approach to ensure you get the proper size. If you truly need a nonstandard door, you have two options.

You can either find a door with blinds that can be trimmed or order a custom option. Most solid wood doors can be cut to size with some basic tools. However, other others may not be as easy to alter, particularly when it comes to refinishing the trimmed edges.

Blinds

When you purchase a 29.5 in. x 79.5 in. door with blinds, you have a broad selection of options to choose from for the blinds themselves. You can typically find them in a range of colors and materials, as well as different kinds of operation. Some of the blinds will feature slats, allowing you to alter their angle as well as raise and lower the blinds. Fabric options generally only raise and lower, providing a set amount of light filtering. Most doors with blinds operate mechanically.

There may be a wheel or pull chain that allows you to raise and lower the blinds and a rod that adjust the slats. Motorized options can be connected to a switch or even a remote, allowing you to make adjustments without having to touch the door itself.

Materials

29.5 in. x 79.5 in. doors with blinds come in a variety of frame materials. Typically, you can find fiberglass, metal, wood, and vinyl options. Fiberglass is fairly affordable and generally low maintenance. Some options even mimic wood grain, allowing you to get the texture of wood for less. Metal doors, such as aluminum or steel, are generally the least expensive and the upkeep requirements are relatively low.

Vinyl is more costly, but also incredibly durable as well as energy efficient. Wood is typically the most expensive option and requires the highest amount of maintenance, but has the potential to last a lifetime with the proper care. They are incredibly durable and also give you the most options when it comes to the finish, as they can be painted or stained and sealed.
