Sliding doors are convenient, attractive options for a diverse range of homes. And with the right window treatments, they can be transformed into another focal point for the room. But with so many quality options, pairing your home’s sliding doors with window treatments is really a matter of your own style. Some window treatments will better suit specific types of sliding doors, but customization options can make any window treatment more versatile.
That’s one of the best things about the design experts at Louver Shop of Pittsburgh. With a free virtual or in-home consultation, you can browse all your options with knowledgeable designers. In the meantime, here are a few sliding door window treatments that can complement your ideal style.
Vertical Blinds Tuck Away for Natural Light and Scenery
For some people, the beauty of a sliding door is what’s on the other side of it. Large sliding doors offer tons of natural light and a view of the scenery. This makes custom vertical blinds a great fit. They can stack neatly away on either side, ensuring maximum light and stunning views. Vertical blinds can be customized with soft textures and colors for a drapery-like appearance.
For example, the Cadence® Soft Vertical Blinds combine beautiful texture with durability and simplicity. When closed, the sheer fabric scatters light into a soft, warm glow. And by blocking up to 75% of UV rays, these blinds ensure sunlight is always where you want it even when you don’t.
These Custom Shades Suit Simpler, Contemporary Styles
Many recent styles lean toward simplicity and minimalism. For window treatments to work with these sliding doors, roller shades are a clean, no-fuss option. These shades are easy to operate and clean, making maintenance as simple as their styling. If you’re concerned about things feeling too bland, lots of shades can be customized with hundreds of fabrics ranging from sheer to opaque.
But some people who love modern styles worry that a clean look equals a sterile feel. They want an element of warmth or texture without losing out on the overall simplicity of shades. Our Provenance® Woven Wood Shades are the perfect answer. Made with stunning natural materials like wood or bamboo, they combine modern functionality with natural beauty.
Shutters Can Make Sliding Doors Feel Sturdy and Stately
Finally, lots of homeowners want their windows to draw the eye. Regal, classic looks suit this style, making timeless interior shutters the ideal solution. These wood or composite shutters establish a sense of luxuriousness, perfect for sliding doors with fine detail. And with sliding track frame options available, your new shutters will match the sliding door’s convenient design.
With all these gorgeous window treatments, making a decision can be tough without seeing how they may look in your actual home. Fortunately, there’s a way to do exactly that.
