what do I do with these tacky headers on vertical blinds?

Hi I have 2 sets of sliding glass doors in my florida home that open to the pool area. These will be converted to french doors later but in the mean time I don't know what to do. They are dingy and ugly as the blinds are but I don't want to invest in expensive new verticals if I'm going to french doors any advice?

Hi are the grommets placed on the track where the blinds used to be?

As a norm we never use vertical blinds in our installations and so what I would recommend doing in this case is to remove and replace with fabric window treatments. We would also suggest starting the rods at the top closest to the ceiling. This will elongate the vision and give a more elegant feel. Unfortunately it will cost you something but will be the best thing in the long run

Throw them out along with the blinds. Personally, hate verticals. I ripped mine down once & hung a white bedsheet on the rod & liked it better until I could buy curtains.

When that door was open, that constant slapslapslap of those plastic slats drove me absolutely crazy.

Sorry for the rant....

Country Curtains has bamboo panels (you'd need 2 for each patio door) that are pretty reasonably priced and would look much nicer than those verticals.
