Great question. Thanks for bringing up this great vertical blind alternative; many people are looking for something like this these days for their patio doors and sliding glass doors. Blinds.com does carry plantation shutters for sliding glass doors. They’re a beautiful, chic option.
Track Plantation Shutters for Sliding Glass Door
To accomplish this, Blinds.com offers two great options. The first is the Blinds.com Track Faux Wood Shutter. This option is made of sliding shutter panels that can stack on one side like vertical blinds. Because the panels slide from side to side, they are easy to operate with with the sliding glass door. The only thing to consider is that the panels stack on one side of the door or the other and cannot leave the whole door uncovered.
Accordion Fold Shutters for Patio Door
The second option is Cartwright Wood Shutters which are available in an accordion folding option. These shutters can be folded and turned out 180 degrees for an unobstructed view. Choose the four panel bi-fold split (configuration 10) and a three sided frame to achieve the look you’re talking about.
Both options are available in a number of unique paints and stains You can order either of these shutters unfinished, then paint or stain them yourself in whatever color you choose. Both offer customized louvers (choose larger louvers for a more modern look) and rear tilt control, if you prefer it.
