Sliding Doors Can Be Fun or a Challenge

There are few things more exciting than being a first time homeowner. It can be thrilling to decorate your new home to fit your taste and style. But as you finish laying down the floor, slapping paint on the walls, you get to the
daunting task of the windows. Specifically, the sliding glass door that takes you to your new backyard. A lot has changed and there are many options now besides vertical blinds. So before you panic, here are some suggestions:

SlidingDoor2Honeycomb– Many don’t realize a honeycomb shade can come as a vertical option. And just like the shades you put in your window, they insulate well.SlidingDoor6

 

Sliding Panels– A streamlined, contemporary option that can be accomplished with woven wood, roller shade fabric, or screen shade material.

 

Doorwall ShuttersPlantation Shutters- A classic option for any window. Whether they bi-fold, slide or open like French doors they will be durable and beautiful in any home.

 

Window Shadings– They have the look of drapery with the function of a vertical blind. These still SlidingDoor7have open/close louvers and the option of pulling all to one side or splitting in the middle like a vertical blind. But these give a softer feel to the room because of the sheer fabric overlay. They are great for filtering in light and giving you some privacy.

Drapery– There are many ways to hang drapery over a sliding glass door. You can make the look formal or casual, traditional or contemporary. A traditional pinch pleat drapery moves on a traverse rod that opens SlidingDoor5with the ease of pulling a string. You can also look into grommet panels that easily slide over a rod. And as a combination of both, if you want a more decorative rod for your pinch pleat drapery, look into a rod with rings. Even on a larger sliding door where you will need extra supports, there are rings that are not complete circles so they can slide over the brackets.

This is just a starting point for you to see what is more your style then you
can take it from there with fabric and color. Let us know what style you like!

    This is a great post! I was looking for ways to update my current “80s-esc” verticle blinds without breaking the budget of placing plantation shutters!
