Why Choose Window Treatments for Sliding Glass Doors

Many of our clients have sliding glass doors, and when they stop in, they ask about the best ways to design window treatments for them. Years back, vertical blinds were the only choices for window treatments for sliding glass doors. Things have changed for the better, and at Window Fashions of Northern California, we can show you all the different options.

Consider the Space: Matching Interior Design

When selecting window treatments for sliding glass doors, consider the existing interior design of the space. The treatments should complement the overall decor without overwhelming it. If your home has a minimalist vibe, opt for clean and simple lines; choose window coverings with classic patterns or textures for traditional aesthetics.

Harmony in the color palette is also essential for your design scheme. The window treatments should make the room’s color palette look even better and bring out elements like a brown leather couch or stainless-steel appliances. If unsure, neutral tones are a safe bet for a timeless look that adapts to changing interior decor trends.

Hunter Douglas Sliding Glass Door Window Treatments 

Most Hunter Douglas window coverings can be adapted for sliding glass doors and large windows. However, some styles work best on doors because they move horizontally; otherwise, they would be more challenging to operate.

Hunter Douglas Vertical Blinds are better than what most people associate with this style:

  • Skyline® Gliding Window Panels are sleek, modern, and made from flat, vertical fabric panels. All are customizable in more than 600 colors, opacities, and textures, 
  • Cadence® Soft Vertical Blinds have a drapery-like personality but with beautifully curved vanes. These also come in various colors, textures, and valance styles, with a patented headrail design for flawless operation.
  • Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds feature a more familiar design that we can customize in countless ways. Choose from fabric, aluminum, or vinyl, with exciting finishes like statement prints. These blinds are texturized with Softex™ to reduce noise; ask us for details.

Cellular Shades for Sliding Glass Doors

Duette® Honeycomb Shades differ from vertical blinds, with honeycomb pleats that stack tightly when open. They come in different textures, patterns, colors, and pleat sizes and provide exceptional insulation. Hunter Douglas offers their Vertiglide™ operating system for vertical applications; use one cellular shade to cover more than one door window or purchase one per door window.

Privacy Sheers for Sliding Glass Doors 

Luminette® Privacy Sheers are a sophisticated choice for sliding glass doors – they’re a hybrid of vertical blinds and sheer drapes. You’ll love how they’re made, with soft fabric vanes and sheer fabrics. They filter the light gently, but ask us about room-darkening fabrics if you need more light control.
