How to Measure Special Horizontal Blinds
French doors :
French Door Blinds are considered outside mount. You will need to measure the length of the area to be covered and make sure that there are 2" to 3-1/2"room for the mounting brackets at the top and approximate 2" below the bottom of the glass to ensure proper coverage. To unblock your view, you might also consider to have your blind entirely stack off the window when its fully raised. (See chart)

For the width, add at least 1 or 2 on either side on either side. Don't add too much to the width of the measurement, otherwise the blinds could interfere door handles or any locks. The tilt and lift controls should be on the side next to the door hinges away from the handle. This helps prevent the controls from getting shut in the door when opening and closing.

Use the exact entire width to be covered for outside mount blinds.) Next, determine the width for each blind, left panel width, center panel width (if required), right panel width, and height. Write it down.Please make sure that all panel widths combined must equal the overall width.
