Sliding Glass Door Window Treatments

April 21, 2021

Sliding glass doors are an excellent aesthetic and functional option, especially for homes with green space or commercial settings with conference rooms and open plans. However, sometimes the transparency of glass sliding doors doesn’t offer as much privacy as one might want. In this blog entry, the window treatment, blinds, and shades experts here at Design Your Blinds will detail the various window treatment options that exist for sliding glass doors.

Sliding Glass Door Shades

Solar Shades

Solar shades are ideal for sliding glass door applications when you want to block ultraviolet rays and reduce glare. You can get solar shades for sliding glass and patio doors in a range of transparencies that block up to 90% of UB rays. They are also ideal choices if you want to preserve your view through the doors.

Roller Shades – These are ideal choices for sliding glass doors when you want a broader range of choice for different materials and transparency levels. You can purchase sliding glass door roller shades in different prints as well as light filtering and blackout options.

Roman Shades – You can purchase roman shades for sliding glass doors that provide a sleek and fashionable look with clean lines. These shades are ideal for sliding glass doors that are used regularly, as they are quite durable and easy to maintain.

Sliding Glass Door Blinds

Vertical blinds are a classic choice for sliding glass doors, and provide a sleek and modern appearance. However we recommend panel track blinds, which glide effortlessly horizontally along a track – rightward, leftword, or split in both directions from the middle. These blinds can be mounted on ceilings, within the frame of sliding doors, or even outside the frame – making them an ideal window treatment for patio windows.

Sliding Glass Door Drapes

You can purchase ripple fold drapes or tailored pleat drapes for your sliding glass doors. These drape layouts have different levels of softness and rippling effects, and ripple fold drapery often boasts sliding panels that move along a track attached to your wall or ceiling.
