Patio Door Window Treatments

Patio doors can be some of the trickiest windows in your home to cover. The large expanse of glass makes it even more necessary to find a proper window covering, as this can lead to reduced privacy and increased energy loss throughout the year. Plus, sliding glass doors need more access to slide or swing open than most of your windows. However, not everyone is a fan of vinyl vertical blinds that we typically see covering sliding glass and patio doors. What other options are there, though? At Kugler’s Home Fashions, we’ve rounded up three of our favorite window treatments for patio doors that aren’t vertical blinds, and we think you’ll love them!

Hunter Douglas Luminette® Privacy Sheers and Duette® Honeycomb Shades with Vertiglide™ near Silver Spring, Maryland (MD).

Skyline® Gliding Window Panels

The crisp, chic lines of Skyline® Gliding Window Panels call to mind a luxurious city loft, adding a touch of high-end modern fashion to your patio door. These are more than just window treatments that provide light control and privacy – they’re statement pieces that look as good closed as they do stacked back for full access to your door. With over 600 colors and many textures and opacities to choose from, these window treatments allow you to have full control over the statement you want to make. You can add as many panels as you want to the proprietary slim headrail. This lets you always achieve the coverage and the view-through you need, whether you’re covering a simple patio door or a whole wall of glass.

Luminette® Privacy Sheers

Luminette® Privacy Sheers are a dreamy take on patio door coverage, combining the utility of vertical blinds with the lovely light filtration of sheer drapery. Vertical vanes attached to a sheer can rotate 180 degrees for light control and privacy. The sheer fabric keeps sunlight from being too harsh or overwhelming, making it a great window treatment for sunrooms or windows that get a lot of light. Room-darkening fabrics are also available. The proprietary SofTrak™ system keeps the hardware out of sight, so your view is always lovely, whether your Luminette® Privacy Sheers are open or closed.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades with Vertiglide™

For homes with large expanses of glass, the unwanted heat loss and gain of oversized windows and patio doors can be a pain, keeping your room too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. Window treatments are a great way to insulate your windows from this effect, but the best window treatments for insulation by far are honeycomb shades. The honeycomb structure creates pockets of trapped air that block exterior air temperatures, making your home more energy efficient and your interior temperature more comfortable. Duette® Honeycomb Shades are not just great for regular windows, though. With Vertiglide™, they also come in a vertical orientation suitable for patio doors and large windows. Choose from a full-stack or split-stack arrangement to give you the patio door access you need while still giving your home the best window insulation.
