Window Treatments for Patio and Sliding-Glass Doors

Dress up these large expanses of glass—with blinds and shades that do more than simply look good

Why leave patio or sliding-glass doors bare, when you can add window treatments? Doing so gives you a trifecta of benefits: you can manage natural light, create privacy when you want it, as well as add a layer of insulation over the glass. 

And when it comes to options, you’ll find you aren’t limited in styles, materials or colors, making it easy to find a look that complements your interiors. 

Here are four styles to get you started:

 

Vertical Blinds 

Available in vinyl, fabric and aluminum, vertical blinds are a popular window treatment for sliding-glass and patio doors. They’re available in lots of materials and colors to choose from and they have minimal stack back, maximizing your view. 

A unique twist on traditional vertical blinds are soft vertical blinds—a style with beautifully curved vanes that give the appearance of drapery folds. An added bonus: their curved design provides excellent sound absorption.

Vertical Cellular Shades

Incredibly energy-efficient, the unique honeycomb construction of cellular shades traps air in distinct pockets, creating an extra layer of insulation for year-round comfort.

Cellular shades come in a variety of pleat sizes, colors, patterns and textures, and like soft vertical blinds, also provide sound absorption.

Vertical Sheer Shades 

Vertical sheers pair the functionality of vertical blinds with the classic elegance of drapery. They feature soft fabric vanes attached to a sheer fabric; when you open the vanes, the shades beautifully diffuse natural light, creating a soft ambiance in a room.

Woven Wood Shades

Crafted from natural woods, bamboo, reeds and grasses, woven wood shades add warmth and character to a space, while filtering sunlight beautifully. You’ll find woven woods available in everything from textured fabrics to more refined weaves, bringing a one-of-a-kind, organic feel to a space.
