    I have some vertical blinds that have seen better days on my outwards opening French doors.

    The room is large with 4 other large windows with the same verticals - these are in good condition and I'm not replacing them.

    Has anyone replaced the slats in their verticals? How expensive was it?

    Any one have any suggestions for a suitable replacement blind for opening doors?

    Hmmmm yeah it does look like privacy is not an issue on that opening? So, perhaps is sun a problem?

    Because if no to the above, then I'd do exactly what Westminster said - remove, don't replace.

    Yes I have replaced blades and it wasnt expensive. But verticals on doors are ugly. Just put in some blockout curtains with a rod above the door.

    Thanks guys. Sun and privacy are both issues with that door. Behind our back fence is a walking track and everyone looks in.

    But it is the house we are selling so I do like Westminster's idea of removing. People probably wouldn't notice when inspecting the property and then it's their issue.

    Dave I hate verticals too.
