Important Considerations for Covering Doors
Window Treatments for Sliding Glass Doors, French Doors & Patio Doors
It can be overwhelming to choose from all of the options available for covering the doors of your home. We’ve got important aspects to consider about the function, operation and style…
The Door Handles
We’re putting this one first, simply because it’s an easy one to forget as you’re browsing through ideas. The doors of your home could feature different versions of the handles. From knobs to levers, and even sliding door handles, the way the doors open can affect the window coverings you choose. Shutters offer a custom cut-out to accommodate door handles, while shades and blinds can be ordered to fit under or next to the handle. Your window covering specialist will know which option can work best.

- What’s Being Used Today
- Available Features
- Vertical VS Horizontal
The traditional way to cover sliders was–and still can be–vertical blinds. Today, you have many more choices. While vertical blinds have seen changes to the design and function, vertical shades offer so many more features. Vertical shades are available in honeycomb shades, wide gliding panels and privacy sheers–to name a few. This expands what’s possible when looking for solutions, such as automated control, energy efficiency, light control variations, privacy + natural light, room darkening & more. Shutters and drapery are additional options for covering sliding doors, as they both can transverse sideways, matching the movement of the door. Homeowners sometimes appreciate using horizontal shades as window treatments for sliding glass doors. Usually one large shade is installed in outside mount fashion to the top trim. The most popular choices are roller shades, roman shades and sheer shades.

- Installation Options
Covering doors with glass panes will upgrade the atmosphere in your home with light control and privacy. They’re beautiful features of your home, and the window coverings will enhance the design. Some of the most popular choices are roman shades, woven shades, roller shades, sheer shades, honeycomb shades and shutters. As we mentioned, door handles can be a factor in what you select. But, one of the factors that will guide your decision is the size of the glass. Typically, the shades are installed above the glass pane, similar to how they would be installed with outside mount on a window, since the framing of the glass pane is so shallow. If your glass pane leaves little area for installation, or if you’re not interested in drilling into the door, we’ve got the newest innovation for you. The TrackGlide system features tracks that run along each side of the glass pane, adhering to the edge of the frame, but not on the glass. The adhered tracks support the function of honeycomb shades that adjust up and down the window of the door for energy efficiency, light control and privacy.
