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 blind, curtain and shade 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.
Since a sliding glass door can fill your home with natural light, it is important to consider how much light you want to let in. Choosing the right window treatments will give you the ultimate ability to control how much light shines in.
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.

Whether you’re looking for more privacy, better light control, or glare reduction, Shades are a versatile solution for sliding glass doors. With professional measuring and more than 1,300 materials to choose from, our Shades can be customized to fit any space and elevate the décor of the room.
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 window coverings for your sliding doors if you want to maintain a beautiful view.
For a wider variety of material choices and transparencies, try Roller Shades for your sliding door. 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 sliding doors with one shade or opt for multiple shades to dress the space.
