4 Popular Window Treatment Options for Sliding Glass Doors
Sliding glass doors are loved by homeowners everywhere because they look great, allow easy access to outside spaces, and let lots of sunlight shine into a space. These huge windows do not offer any privacy, so when covering sliders, here are four (4) popular options:
1. Sliding Plantation Shutter Panels
Add instant architecture to your room and give your sliding glass doors classic style with plantation shutters. Louvered panels will cover your glass door and slide back and forth on a track. The louvers can be tilted for adjustable light and privacy control. This look is beautiful and functional, and more affordable than you think.
2. Sheer Draperies
Always classic, sheer drapery panels add an “easy/breezy” elegance to your sliding glass doors. They filter sunlight and add sheer privacy to your space. Sheer panels can be partnered with vertical louvers (Hunter Douglas Luminettes) to offer additional privacy and light filtering. This is a beautiful option for a clean, polished, and sophisticated look.
3. Drapery Panels
Timeless and elegant, drapery panels are always a popular option for covering sliding glass doors.
Whether you choose a neutral fabric or want to add a punch of color, drapery panels never go out of style. They are like the jewelry you add to complete your outfit—they add the finishing detail to your room.
4. Solar Shades
Growing in popularity, today’s solar shades are loved for their simplicity and sleek functionality. Motorized shades have added appeal due to their easy operation at the push of a button. Whether filtering sunlight or blackout, solar shades are well suited for sliding glass doors.
