Glass patio doors provide a beautiful, open view, however they can also allow in too much harsh light at certain times of the day and provide a full open view for anyone looking into your home.  When choosing blinds or shades for your sliding door, consider the amount of light they allow through and the privacy they provide.  

Vertical blinds are a popular, practical, and durable option for high traffic areas such as patio doors. They are affordable and easy to operate, and will open in the same direction as the sliding door.  Simply tilt the vanes open and close and provide varying degrees of light control and privacy. 

Sheer verticals offer the same functionality as classic vertical blinds along with the elegant soft look of sheer curtains.  They pair well with dressy or contemporary decor and are a lightweight alternative to traditional blinds. Coordinate vertical sheers on your patio door with luxurious sheer horizontal Serenity and Cascade shades on nearby windows.

Drapery is a versatile and stylish option for sliding doors that adds a refined touch to your room and coordinates well with other window treatments. There are endless combinations of drapery material and hardware finishes to choose from to match your room’s personality.

Shutters are insulating, easy to clean and built to last a lifetime.  They integrate seamlessly with your windows and can enhance any room, whether casual or elegant.  Bi-fold shutters are stylish and versatile and fold up neatly to the side of the door offering a full view of the patio door.

Panel track shades are an excellent choice for sliding glass doors since they stack clear of the door when fully open. The fabrics and materials in this collection coordinate with  our Roller, Solar and Woven wood collections, making it easy to match your patio door with other window treatments.
