Patio and sliding glass doors are well-loved for many reasons – they bring in a ton of natural light within the home and offer easy access to the outdoors. Although these doors offer plenty of benefits, finding the right window treatments for them can be a bit challenging.

Read on to learn about some of the best window treatment options for these doors.

Panel Shades

Panel shades are a top window treatment for patio doors and sliding glass doors. They’re easy to use and offer you the flexibility to control the amount of light or privacy you’d like within your space.

This chic and modern option glides along a track that can be installed as a ceiling or wall mount application. Depending on the width of your door, your track can accommodate anywhere from three to six panels.

Panel shades bring extra sophistication and style into your space. No matter what look you’re after, you’ve got a lot of room to get creative. These types of shades are available in several fabrics, styles, colours and textures, and are an ideal window treatment for households with children or pets. Instead of being operated by cords, panel shades are designed with a Wand Lever mechanism. This all helps to minimize the risk of accidents.

Not only are they easy on the eyes, they require very little cleaning and maintenance. Just dust them with a feather duster on a daily basis to keep them looking pristine.

Roller Shades

If you’re looking for a modern and elegant window treatment, roller shades are an ideal option.

Roller shades can be made with a variety of different fabrics that suit your lifestyle, including solar, light filtering, or blackout fabrics. When deciding on what to choose, keep in mind that every solar shade fabric has its own openness factor which indicates the amount of light that the fabric lets in. It’s also important to remember to roll these shades all the way up before opening and closing your door.

Whatever your preference or budget is, there’s a roller shade that will work for you.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are also one of the most popular window treatments for sliding glass doors since they are convenient and versatile. Vertical blinds are easy to clean and maintain since the louvers are vertical. Dust and dirt particles don’t stick as much to these blinds and can be easily wiped clean. 

Vertical blinds are also both durable and cost-effective. They look gorgeous covering large windows and are incredibly quiet when opening and closing. They’re perfect for filtering light since the blinds can rotate 180 degrees, allowing you to customize how much sun exposure you want in your space. When the blinds are completely closed, they stack against each other, providing complete privacy and blocking out light. Our vertical blinds are made from PVC and are highly customizable. They’re available in a variety of colours and styles that will be sure to enhance your home.
