Sliding glass doors give you a wide view of the outdoors, helping you find a link with your surroundings. But it can be almost impossible to find a stylish window treatment, since they’re wide, open horizontally and have hand levers and locks.
We’ve found five of the best window treatments for sliding glass doors in Louisville to help you find the proper option.
When you work with a window treatment pros like Louver Shop of Louisville, you’ll be able to simply customize your order. With a collection of colors, fabrics and high-tech operating systems to choose, your space can look just how you picture it.
1. Sliding Shutter Panels
Plantation shutters probably aren’t the first option you’d think about for your patio door. But bypass or bifold shutters are a nice way to increase energy efficiency. Or complement the other shutters across your house. As they push or fold out of the way, they give you privacy when you need it and bring the view when you want it.
When you turn to a customizable plantation shutter manufacturer like Louver Shop of Louisville, you’ll get to choose your material, color, louver size and more. We provide four top-of-the-line bypass and bifolding designs, from premier American hardwood and polymer to a combination of the two.
Our shutters are low-maintenance and include a lifetime limited warranty for peace of mind.
2. Sheer Shades
Sheer shades from Hunter Douglas resemble curtains but include the capabilities of blinds. This window treatment has sheer, semi-opaque or opaque material to change bright sunlight into a welcoming glow. Cord-free adjustable vanes float between the material for privacy and light control.
There’s a reason Silhouette® shades have been a homeowner preferred pick for more than 25 years. These shades are completely customizable, so you can pick from plenty of different textures and colors to find the best look for your space.
Have to have room-darkening capabilities? You can modify your sheer shades to add the Duolite® roller shade.
3. Sliding Panels
For the most modern treatment, there’s Skyline® sliding panels from Hunter Douglas. A new take on panel track blinds, these large fabric vertical blinds are guaranteed to make a statement on large windows.
When you want a view, the panels easily stack together to offer a clear view. When you need privacy, they display their stylish fabrics and patterns.
When ordering your sliding panels, you’ll see more than 600 possibilities to select from—starting with colors and textures to a variety of opacities.
4. Honeycomb Shades
Did you know your house’s windows lose up to a third of your heating and cooling? Honeycomb shades are a great way to increase your residence’s energy efficiency, especially on big openings like sliding glass doors.
But just because you’re concerned about not wasting energy doesn’t mean you have to forget about style. This shade delivers a drape-like style through soft fabric shades.
To customize your home’s energy savings, you can choose from single-, double- and triple-cell construction. With up to six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets, Duette® delivers one of the most energy-efficient window coverings you can purchase.
5. Roman Shades
Roman shades are one of the most versatile window treatments for sliding glass doors.
When raised, they stack or fold into orderly pleats. When closed, they give you a smooth, drape-like style, plus the strength of energy-efficient window coverings.
With Solera®, you can conserve energy with smart style. This useful window treatment has the appearance of a Roman shade but provides the powerful insulating potential of a honeycomb shade. Plus, you’ll have a diverse collection of luxury woven and non-woven textiles to pick from as you craft your window coverings.
Need the style of a sliding panel that can be conveniently raised and lowered? Vignette® accomplishes all that with no cords to distract from the view outside your window.
Additionally, there’s a collection of sheer, light-filtering and room-darkening options to pick from. You can also improve your Vignette shades with Architella® for added insulation or Duolite® for blackout capabilities.
