Patio Door Ideas

Choosing the right window covering for patio doors can be tricky at times, so we’ve put together a number of options to make the process a little easier!

  • The most popular choice: Vertical blinds are equipped with a sleek, heavy-duty aluminum track with the EZ glide draw system and available with a cord or wand control [perfect for child & pet safety]!
  • Then there are the nontraditional panel track shades: The panels will slide effortlessly across your window openings and stack neatly when drawn. They are available in soft fabrics, woven woods, grass weaves and sunscreen materials that can be coordinated with other window treatments, enhancing the look of your room.
  • You can also try shutters: The benefits of choosing shutters range from architectural appeal, effective light control, superior energy efficiency, sound control and an increase in the market value of your home.
  • Or you can even do luxurious drapery and sheers for your patio doors: Drapery can be used alone or layered to add depth, color and drama to your room and is especially suited for showcase rooms such as the living room, dining room or master bedroom.
