Sliding glass doors provide a nice view of the outdoors, helping you connect with your surroundings. But it can be difficult to find the right window treatment, since they’re large, open horizontally and have hand levers and locks.
We’ve found five of the best window treatments for sliding glass doors in Dallas to help you discover the proper selection.
When you go with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Dallas/Fort Worth, you’ll be able to readily customize your selection. With an array of colors, fabrics and high-tech operating systems to choose from, your home can look just how you envision it.
1. Sliding Shutter Panels
Plantation shutters likely aren’t the first product you’d consider for your patio door. But bypass or bifold shutters are a great way to boost energy efficiency. Or work with the rest of the shutters within your space. As they push or fold out of the way, they provide privacy when you need it and offer the light when you want it.
When you work with a customized plantation shutter manufacturer like Louver Shop of Dallas/Fort Worth, you’ll have the capability to pick your material, color, louver size and more. We provide four top-of-the-line bypass and bifolding models, from premier American hardwood and polymer to a combination of the two.
Our shutters are no-maintenance and include a lifetime limited warranty for peace of mind.
2. Sheer Shades
Sheer shades from Hunter Douglas have the look of curtains but include the usefulness of blinds. This window treatment has sheer, semi-opaque or opaque material to change blinding sunlight into a warm glow. Cord-free adjustable vanes are suspended between the sheers for privacy and light control.
There’s a reason Silhouette® shades have stayed a interior design preferred pick for more than 25 years. These shades are thoroughly customizable, so you can choose from a collection of different materials and colors to find the best match for your home.
Have to have room-darkening capabilities? You can upgrade your window treatments to incorporate the Duolite® roller shade.
3. Sliding Panels
For the most sleek treatment, there’s Skyline® sliding panels from Hunter Douglas. A updated take on panel track blinds, these large fabric vertical blinds are guaranteed to make a statement on large windows.
When not in use, the panels cleanly sit together to give you an unobstructed view. When you want some privacy, they show off their gorgeous colors and designs.
When ordering your sliding panels, you’ll have more than 600 options to pick from—including colors and textures to a range of opacities.
4. Honeycomb Shades
Did you know your home’s windows leak up to a third of your heating and cooling? Honeycomb shades are a fantastic solution to enhance your residence’s energy efficiency, especially on wide openings like sliding glass doors.
But just because you’re worried about saving energy doesn’t mean you have to give up on good looks. This shade delivers a drape-like style through soft fabric shades.
To customize your home’s energy efficiency, you can pick from single-, double- and triple-cell features. With up to six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets, Duette® gives your home one of the most energy-efficient window coverings you can install in your home.
5. Roman Shades
Roman shades are one of the most useful window treatments for sliding glass doors.
When not in use, they stack or fold into neat pleats. When down, they provide a sleek, drape-like appearance, plus the strength of energy-efficient shades.
With Solera®, you can save energy with smart style. This modern window treatment has the look of a Roman shade but delivers the incredible insulating abilities of a honeycomb shade. Plus, you’ll see a complete collection of luxurious woven and non-woven materials to choose from as you customize your window treatments.
Need the fashion of a sliding panel that can be easily raised and lowered? Vignette® achieves all that without cords to distract from the view outside your window.
Even better, there’s a variety of sheer, light-filtering and room-darkening materials to select from. You can also improve your Vignette shades with Architella® for additional insulation or Duolite® for blackout capabilities.
