Sliding Door Window Treatments
Idea – Sheer panels
Sheer panels need very little effort when you are moving them and they filter light, thus maintaining the nice feature of your sliding door. With all the patterns and colors options available in the market, you won’t have any problem when looking for the perfect sheer which matches your home’s décor.
The worst thing you can do is to weigh down an airy look using a heavy metal or wood rod. You may consider a hanging system with subtle cable which supports your panels with simple ring clips.
Idea – Side mounted panels
Purely decorative treatment using side mounted panels look nice for sliders which are used often or which frame unbeatable vistas, so the view remains visible. Because these panels are unmovable, you can mount the rods to be out of reach, 12 inches above your door frame top, for a tricky design which adds height to a lower ceiling.
Work of art
Choose boldly colored as well as patterned fabric panels so that they can double as panels and art. A four inch contrasting cuff and a ruffled top edge changes the panel for formal spaces.
Idea – Simple but stunning valance
A simple valance gives your plain door a nice look without hampering its operation or blocking the views. This window treatment for sliding glass door packs a visible punch with a zigzag edge lined by solid blue.
For the valance to hold its shape, its fabric is mounted to a U shape wood frame which is fixed to the wall using L brackets fixed 18 inches above your door frame.
