Why Cover My Glass Doors?

  • Privacy: If you have a nosey neighbor, you understand the value of this. It’s also helpful if you live on a busy street with much foot traffic. Whenever you can see out, it usually means others can see into your house.
  • Light Control: No matter where a window is, it will let light pass through. This light may not make a difference to you by your front door, but it’s nearly impossible to nap on your couch or sleep in late on Saturday if sunlight is streaming through your sliding doors or the French door to your patio.
  • Protection From UV Light: The same UV rays that enter your home through the picture window in your living room also come through French doors, putting your area rug and other furnishings at risk for fading and discoloration. Covering the windows on your doors helps to protect these items.

Sliding Glass Door Window Treatments

Covering large windows on sliding glass and patio doors doesn’t have to be a challenge. Vertical blinds are a no-fail choice for these applications, and Hunter Douglas has various styles.

Luminette® Sheer Panels feature delicate sheer panels with integrated vertical vanes that allow you to effortlessly adjust the amount of light in a space while enjoying privacy. The smooth curves of Cadence® Vertical Blinds mimic the sumptuous folds of drapery while providing the practical functionality of blinds, and the Somner® Vertical Blinds line offers various fabric, metal, and vinyl options to fit any interior design.

Duette® Cellular Shades are ideal for introducing texture to a room and offer unmatched insulation at the window. The cordless Vertiglide™ system ensures smooth operation on doors of all sizes and allows you to use cellular shades on windows throughout an entire space to create a cohesive look. Suppose you’re using cellular shades on French doors. In that case, you can choose the traditional horizontal and top-down/bottom-up styles for added versatility and light and privacy control flexibility.

Patio Door Window Treatments

No matter what type of window treatment you choose for your patio door, we suggest a cordless design for aesthetics and practical purposes. Vignette® Modern Roman Shades are an elegant choice for patio doors. They are lightweight and available in several opacities, including sheer and light-filtering. We recommend adding the Duolite® feature to Roman shades on your patio door so you can choose between a sheer shade or opaque liner or use them simultaneously for the most light control and privacy.

EverWood® Faux Wood Blinds are another outstanding choice for patio doors. They offer the inviting aesthetic of hardwood but can withstand the temperature fluctuations and humidity they’ll experience on a window. Modern Precious Metals® Mini Blinds also look fantastic on patio doors, and the ½-inch wide slats are a striking choice for sidelights. The adjustable slats of blinds make them an excellent solution for patio doors because you can see outside without entirely raising the set to preserve your privacy.
