Sliding Glass Door Window Treatments

Glass sliding doors are functional and stylish. Most provide easy access to the patio or deck where your family might enjoy barbecues or picnics. On the other side might be your kitchen where you want to keep things simple. Deciding on your sliding glass door window covering should give good balance between the two sides. Here are some options to consider:

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are a common solution to sliding glass doors. They are easy to adjust, provide solar control and are easy to open and close. The modern option of vertical blinds are back-stacking vinyl blinds. This option keeps the blind vanes from tangling up. Vertical blinds are available in different blackout levels, which is a great way to block out the unwanted glare or noise from the outside.

Sliding Panel Blinds

Horizontal panel options are usually the best option if you’re looking for light control. If you’re looking to keep out that heavy sun during dinner or while you’re watching TV, these panel blinds keep out that glare while still giving you the view.


Draperies are always an option. Because they move easily on tracks, you can adjust the shades to your liking. If you’re trying to enjoy dinner or want to keep out the sun midday, close them. If you want to watch your kids play in the backyard or keep the screen open during a cool fall day, open them. They also come in blackout options!

There are so many options for sliding glass door window treatments, so decide what your biggest need is and then you can settle on which covering is best for you.
