Creative Window Treatment Ideas for Sliding Glass Doors

Window treatments for sliding glass doorsAre you looking for creative window treatment ideas for sliding glass doors? Sliding glass doors can be challenging because not only is there a large space to cover, it is also necessary to open the door from time to time so the window treatments must be removable in some way.

Danmer offers a wide selection of custom shutters, shades and blinds that are perfect for sliding glass doors of all sizes in any room of the house. Choose from different colors and styles to create a unique look.

Shutters

Shutters, especially custom shutters from Danmer offer lots of creative options for covering sliding glass doors. The first decision is how you want the shutters to open; either sliding or bi-fold. Sliding shutters work well if you only need to open the shutters part way. Bi-fold doors take up more floor space when opened, but they can be opened enough to reveal the entire sliding door and window.

Shades

Shades are excellent, cost effective window treatments for sliding glass doors and large windows. Roller shades are a popular choice if you’re looking to black out a room; like a bedroom for example. Shear shades are also available if you’re looking for added privacy as well as allowing light into a room. And because they roll up when not in use, you can always add a valance or curtains to give the window some more personality.

Woven shades are a less expensive, yet still creative option depending on the overall look of the room. These shades are typically made from bamboo or jute and they look great in a room that has a casual or even tropical look. Complement a room with a beachy feel and then complete the room with other beach décor for a room where you’ll love to relax and decompress.

Blinds

Blinds may seem boring at first, but there are lots of fun ways to spruce them up. First pick the color and material. Choose from wood, faux wood or synthetic materials, depending on how you want them to look in the room. You can even select horizontal or vertical styles. Vertical blinds work best on larger windows and sliding glass doors.

To make blinds a more meaningful part of your décor, don’t settle for the typical white or eggshell versions. Spice it up by choosing blinds in an accent color like red or blue. Or surround the window with other window treatments such as pulled back curtains. And for extra flare, consider blinds that come with a design on the louvers so when they’re closed it reveals an image.

The way to get creative with shutters is to allow Danmer to help you with the design. Danmer’s Masterpiece Shutters can be designed with a high quality photo or image printed directly on the shutters. Choose a palm tree with rolling waves in the distance or select one of your favorite works of art. Whatever creative idea you have for the shutters in your home, Danmer can help. For over 35 years Danmer Custom Shutters has provided unique and beautiful window coverings for homes all over California.
