When it comes to finding the appropriate window treatment for your sliding glass door, you need to choose one that will not obstruct your opening or closing of the door and will still look sleek and stylish.

5 Window Treatment Options for Your Sliding Glass Door

1. Drapery Panels

Drapery can be a stylish option as a sliding glass door window treatment. Although they are limited in the amount of light control and can be a hassle to clean, these are one of the easiest window treatments to install and can be updated easily and cheaply. If you purchase a thermal insulated curtain, you will also improve the energy efficiency of your home when the drapery is closed.

2. Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are another affordable and popular option for a sliding glass door treatment. They’re easy to clean and they give you control over the amount of sunlight a room receives. Depending on the quality, vertical blinds can be prone to cracking. If fans are on near these types of blinds, they can also be noise as well.

3. Sliding Panel Systems

A sliding panel system is a more modern-looking take on vertical blinds. The panels in this system are wider and operate via a sliding track. There is a range of fabrics, materials, and styles which offer a range of light control, insulation, and privacy. When these panels are open, the panels stacked together will be larger than that of vertical blinds.

4. Vertical Cellular Shades

Vertical shades are another option for a sliding glass door window treatment, and they can provide great insulation because they cover the entire frame of the door. Most of these shades still allow light to come through but tend to be very cumbersome to clean. Stained shades will have to be replaced.

5. Shutters

shutters are a timeless option to decorate your sliding glass doors. They are one of the most versatile window treatments and are well worth the investment. Eclipse Shutters Bi-Fold Track System allows shutters to slide and fold when opened.
