Sliding glass doors are attractive and functional, but finding window coverings you like can be difficult. Since sliding doors will be opened and closed a lot, it is important to choose window treatments that can be moved completely out of the way. For this reason, blinds are an excellent choice. Here are some tips for selecting blinds for sliding glass doors.
Choosing the Right Style
Obviously one of the most important aspects of selecting blinds for your home is the color and style. From 100% basswood blinds to faux wood blinds that can be painted in a wide array of colors, Danmer has a lot to choose from. The most common type of blinds used for large areas such as sliding glass doors is vertical blinds. They are easy to open and close and when opened they take up very little space.
You’ll also have to consider color. Think about the colors already in the room and what kind of look you’re going for. Do you want the blinds to blend into the room so you choose a bright white or cream color? Or do you want to make a statement with a rich espresso or a deep cherry? Whatever look you’re going for, a Danmer design specialist can help. Just remember that you’ll likely want to match the blinds on your sliding glass door to the blinds on other windows in the room.
Only Select High-Quality Blinds
Another very important consideration is quality. There are many inexpensive options available for blinds, including off-the-shelf brands; however these options aren’t likely to last very long. Blinds have many working parts and if those pieces are not made from high-quality material, they will break quickly. Saving a little money initially is likely to cost you more money and more headaches down the road.
Blinds from Danmer are built on a durable roll-formed, heavy-duty steel headrail that provides long-term strength and stability. Even the cord lock containing a stainless steel wear guard with a crash-resistant safety feature locks the blinds automatically once the lift cords are released.
Consider Insulation Benefits
Save on heating and cooling bills with high-quality Danmer blinds. Covering large areas such as sliding glass doors helps to reduce airflow which keeps the indoor temperature comfortable. Blinds also help block direct sunrays that can really heat up a home at certain times of the day. The more you can regulate indoor temperature, the less you’ll have to spend on running the heater or A/C.
