Access to your outdoor space is incredibly important. With the right window treatments for sliding glass doors, it can be very easy and convenient. Do you questions about covering doors? Which benefits would be the most valuable in your home?

Your glass door blinds depend on function as much as they do style. Glass doors have a tendency to bring in a great deal of light and glare, while also adding to the energy loss. Protect your home and the comfort of it, while adding style with fabrics or materials that coordinate with the look of your home.
Sometimes, it just comes down to inspiration! Take a look at a recent article that showcases some of our favorites. We can help you see what your home could look like with french door shutters, sliding door vertical blinds, shades for patio doors, and so much more! Enjoy the outdoors, while loving the indoors of your home.
What You Should Know about Window Treatments for Doors
If you’ve been searching for door coverings for your Milwaukee area home, you know that there’s so many choices! What will work best for your doors? Knowledge is power, and we are sharing details to help narrow down your options!
The Door Handles
Starting off with one of the most important factors in window treatments for doors: The Door Handles. Without the proper window coverings, you won’t have easy access to your handles, making the door useless. Consider what type of handle you have, whether a knob or lever. Then, think about where the glass panes are in relation to that handle. You may need window treatments for doors that have custom handle cut-outs, like shutters. Or, you may be able to choose shades or blinds that cover only the glass portion, without getting in the way of the handle. Finally, we can recommend certain window coverings that are low profile, allowing the presence of the shades to not interfere with the function of the door.
Window Treatments for Sliding Glass Doors
- What’s Popular Today
- Which Features Are Available
- The Vertical VS Horizontal Debate
You probably know that one way to cover sliders was traditionally with vertical blinds. Today’s vertical blinds have upgraded features for style and function. But, if you’d like to choose something different, there are vertical shades that adjust sideways to match the movement of the door. These door and large window coverings are available as vertical honeycomb shades, woven shades, sheer shades and wide gliding panels. Many homeowners like to use shutters, and we have shutters that cover doors, sliding or folding sideways. Draperies are another dynamic way to achieve style while solving challenges surrounding doors.
Window Treatments for French Doors & Patio Doors
- What Styles Are Popular
- Features Available
- Installation Process
The glass panes of your patio and french doors need coverage just like the windows of your home. We already mentioned how important it can be to customize the function of the door handle. The most popular shades for french doors and patio doors are roller shades, roman shades, woven shades, sheer shades and honeycomb shades. Depending on the size of the glass, you can choose from any of the most popular features, like smart shades, dual shades, room darkening, energy efficient and top down. Mounted above the glass pane frame, the shades are installed similar to the outside mount of a window shade. If you have a very narrow amount of space, or you just don’t want to drill into the door, you should consider the TrackGlide system. This consists of two narrow tracks placed on the sides of the glass, adhered to the frame. The shade is connected, adjusting up and down along the track.
