How to Achieve Style and Function for Sliders
When you need to add a layer of privacy over sliding glass doors, there are plenty of options beyond those old-fashioned vinyl vertical blinds. Since sliding doors often see a lot of traffic, you want window treatments that open and close easily and can withstand heavy use. With Roller Shades, Panel Track Blinds, and Drapes from The Shade Store, it’s easy to add style to your sliding doors without sacrificing functionality.
Roller Shades + Solar Shades for Sliding Doors
For a dramatic statement over sliders, Roller Shades and Solar Shades are durable and easy to raise and lower. Use Solar Shades if your primary concern is reducing glare and blocking UV rays. Choose from a variety of transparencies; for example, our 10% material blocks 90% of UV rays. Solar Shades are also perfect for your space if you want to maintain a beautiful view.
For a wider variety of material choices and transparencies, try Roller Shades. Available in light filtering, blackout, and print options, you can coordinate your shades with any style of décor.
Both Solar and Roller Shades can be crafted in widths up to 144”, so you can cover a wide set of doors with one shade or opt for multiple shades to dress the space. Our Continuous Loop chain control is a cinch to operate, and shades 104” wide and up automatically get our Continuous Loop – Lift Assist at no charge.
Panel Track Blinds for Glass Doors
An incredible update to standard vertical blinds, our Panel Track Blinds are ideal for covering patio doors or even acting as room dividers. The Cord or Baton (certified “Best for Kids”) control options slide effortlessly along your choice of a White or Silver track. You can also choose the opening direction: to the right, to the left, or split from the middle.
Panel Track Blinds can be mounted on the ceiling, inside the doorframe (inside mount blinds have minimum depth requirements), or outside the frame. With 300+ colors and a variety of privacy levels, Panel Track Blinds are the epitome of versatility and are sure to garner compliments in your home.
Ripple Fold Drapery for Sliding Glass Doors
If you’re dreaming of soft folds of fabric billowing around your glass doors, Ripple Fold Drapery fits the bill. Similar to Panel Track Blinds, Ripple Fold Drapery glides along a track mounted either to the ceilings or the wall. Choose between Cord, Baton, and even Motorized control options to fit your needs.
