Many homes feature sliding glass doors as a beautiful and functional option. These glass doors provide easy access to the outdoors as well as revealing a great view of your yard. They let in plenty of light and allow you to combine the outdoors and indoors seamlessly together in one room.
However, it’s important to consider that sliding glass doors open horizontally so the blinds or shades that you choose should not interfere with the opening of the door or the walkway created when the doors are open. In other words, you don’t want to walk into the window treatment while the door is open. The best window treatments for sliding glass doors are plantation shutters, Roman shades, vertical blinds and vertical cellular shades.
- Roman Shades
Roman shades provide a luxurious feel to any space. They tend to fit door dimensions without interfering with the handles, especially since Hunter Douglas custom makes all their window treatments. They also provide exceptional light control and privacy.
- Vertical Blinds
These window treatments are great for larger windows and they open side to side, which makes them ideal for sliding glass doors. They also help control light and privacy.
- Vertical Cellular Shades
Vertical cellular shades offer all the benefits of cellular shades, with the ability to slide horizontally for sliding glass doors. They’re energy efficient, ideal for larger windows and available in many color and fabric choices to match your home décor style.
