The Best Window Treatments for Patio Doors

Patio Doors

Patio doors are the most functional window you will find yourself covering. With everyone sliding them open and closed every day, it’s important to find a window treatment that can withstand the constant traffic while also providing your home with all the necessary features it needs.

Here are a few of our window treatment ideas for sliding glass doors.

Sliding Panels

Sliding Panels give you sleek style, are easy to operate and are a versatile choice with hundreds of fabric options. Sliding Panel Blinds are made with flat vertical panels of fabric on tracks that allow them to slide to cover or uncover your window and neatly stack behind each other.  It’s a fashionable new way to cover patio doors.

Cellular Shades

If you need to control the temperature in your room, Cellular Shades are a great choice for you. The honeycomb-shaped fabric construction creates air pockets that insulate your windows to keep you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Cellular shades are made of a woven polyester fabric treated to resist stains and static electricity, making them easy to clean, with edges that won’t fray.  They are also very durable as the polyester fabric bounces back and holds its pleats for a tight stacking. The fabric is available in a wide range of colors and textures in various cell sizes, and in various opacities, from sheer to total blackout.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are durable and can span wide distances. They are available in a full range of styles, from moderately priced vinyl to decorative fabrics. The vertical vanes rotate open and closed and traverse across the window like a drapery to provide excellent light control. Vertical blinds can be stacked tightly to one side, allowing you to take full advantage of your outside view.

They provide optimum privacy and security when closed and are very durable. Easy to clean: vanes hang vertically, eliminating settling dust, so they remain virtually dust free.

Soft Treatments

Draperies are also a good option.  You can choose from patterns, prints, and solids in hundreds of colors to coordinate perfectly with your existing decor. If you need to control light or heat, you can add a blackout or thermal lining to them.



However, if you want to match other shutters in your home, or give your sliding glass door classic style, shutters are a great choice.

Shutters are ideal for a clean, classic, or even a contemporary look for any home. Choose from a wide variety of paint or stain colors, or even use a completely custom color that matches your decor perfectly!

Sheer Shades

Sheer shades are a seamless blend of light control and style. Imagine two layers of sheer fabrics to protect your room from the sun’s damaging UV rays, combined with soft fabric vanes for the ultimate light control. Sheer shades are made for the most demanding of styles, giving your windows a clean, crisp appearance with stunning sophistication.

Sheer Window Shadings are a perfect combination of blinds, roller shades, and classic sheers to elevate the look and feel of your entire home. Plus, there are no inner cords to distract from their beauty. Sheer shades offer the pinnacle of quality, elegance and fashion among today’s upscale window treatments.

Because virtually any product is compatible with Patio Doors, such as Vertical Blinds, Honeycomb/Cellular Shades, Roller/Solar Shades, Window Shadings/Sheer Shades, Shutters and Drapery, finding the right solution can become overwhelming.
