With so much time to enjoy the outdoors here in the Charleston area, many of our customers’ homes have beautiful sliding glass doors leading to decks and patios. Customers often ask us for new ideas on how to cover these doors so they can enjoy their view while still controlling light and privacy. Years ago, the only real options for sliding doors were clunky plastic vertical blinds or some type of drapery. While verticals and drapery are still good options, today’s window covering shoppers have even more choices to cover their sliding glass doors.
Options for Window Coverings for Sliding Glass Doors
Here at the Shutter Guy, our selection of window coverings for sliding glass doors include:
Shutters for doors: Get the classic look of shutters with the use of a by-pass track system, allowing the panels to slide past each other.
Honeycomb shades for sliding glass doors and French doors: Take the energy efficiency and ease of operation of a honeycomb shade and turn it vertically. Available in sheer, semi-sheer, semi-opaque, opaque and blackout fabrics.
Sheer shades for doors: With sheer shades, soft face fabric is permanently bonded to fabric vanes to diffuse the sunlight while maintaining your view. Add a backing option to your sheer shades for room- darkening.
Luminette® Modern Draperies for doors: Create a look of sophistication with these quality window treatments from Hunter Douglas. Consistent contoured columns of fabric gracefully span the door opening with either traditional™ or Ribbon™ Panel design options.
Woven wood or wood vertical blinds for doors: Add warm and dimension to any room created from natural woods, reads, bamboo and grasses.
Soft vertical blinds for doors: For excellent sound absorption and translucency, soft vertical vanes reduce light gaps and provide a tight fit for a smooth and quiet performance.
Drapery and top treatments for doors: Lastly, don’t discount draperies. They can add another element of luxury to your sliding, patio or French doors. There are thousands of fabrics, textures, styles to select from. The numerous drapery hardware options available will add the finishing touch. Adding a top treatment such as a valance or cornice to your window treatment selection is another way to add color, texture and drama to any room.
