Sliding doors and patio doors can seem daunting to treat—they’re larger, and unlike with regular windows, people enter and exit through them, which means that they have a functionality that needs to be addressed. Plus, because they’re often in rooms that also have smaller windows, it can seem like you’ll never find treatments that coordinate. However, at Bretz Interiors serving the greater Denver area, we’re here to tell you that Hunter Douglas, the leader in the window treatment industry, has you covered. Read on to learn about some of your options!
Why You’ll Want to Treat That Door
Because these larger doors are comprised of mostly glass, window coverings play a huge role in energy efficiency by keeping your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Plus, covering your patio or sliding doors will also will make your room feel finished, protect your interior from damaging UV rays, and give you more privacy. Here are some things to consider:
- Draperies or drapery panels. With hundreds of fabrics in hundreds of colors and textures, you can find the perfect fabric to coordinate with your décor. If privacy isn’t a concern, select drapery panels. If you want some privacy but still want the view, select a sheer fabric. However, if privacy is key, select a heavier fabric with a decorative rod or a combination of blinds and draperies together to achieve the result you want.
- Custom-made vertical blinds. Vertical blinds are an inexpensive way to cover patio and sliding doors. You can choose from Cadence® Soft Vertical Blinds – They mimic soft drapery folds that move smoothly along their track, Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds They offer the largest selection of colors, fabrics, vinyl, and aluminum, and Vertical Solutions® – They are the most economical and are offered in patterns and colors in fabric and vinyl.
- Duette® Vertiglide™ Honeycomb Shades. The clean look of honeycomb shades turned vertical. These will coordinate nicely with other honeycomb shades, and you have flexibility in how they open. If you choose Duolite™, you’ll get two shades in one—a sheer fabric and an opaque fabric for total light control.
- Luminette® Privacy Sheers. These beautiful sheers rotate like a vertical blind, but have the look of a fine drapery.
- Skyline® Gliding Window Panels. These are a sophisticated and minimalistic solution for your light and privacy concerns. From translucent to blackout, you can customize just the right amount of privacy or light you desire. They are also great as a room divider.
