Sliding Door Blinds

Sliding doors, also known as sliding glass doors, patio doors, and door walls, can pose a window treatment challenge. They’re always very large and let in lots of light, and the options for covering them may not always be the most stylish. Today, we’re going to focus on the most popular blinds for door walls and give you some chic blinds for sliding glass doors options.

Option #1: Smooth PVC Verticals. This Smooth PVC Vertical is a best-seller because it is an inexpensive vertical blind. Customers who purchased these described them as “easy to install” and “great at blocking light on my patio door.” One customer, MaryJ, said, “”these are the best bargin for blinds that we’ve seen. Excellent quality, unbeatable price.” They’re available in lots of colors so you can easily match them to the décor you already have.

Option #2: Fabric Verticals. These are a great alternative to draperies, and a great alternative to standard vertical blinds. These will lend a more modern look to your patio doors. One customer wrote that she’d “never go back to curtains” after having these. They’re great for room darkening. Another customer told us she turned to these for her “slider in the dining room [that] takes up most of the wall,” when ready-made verticals didn’t come big enough, and added that “the fit was perfect.”

Option #3: Bali Natural Woven Wood Drapes. Another great alternative to vertical blinds, these drapes are made of popular bamboo and other woven materials, which give you the opportunity to bring a bit of nature into your home in a super-modern way. Reviewer “karenqca” says, “After remodeling our kitchen I wanted to find an alternative window covering to replace the vertical blinds on our sliding glass door that would be aesthetically pleasing as well as functional. I saw this product online but could not find it in local stores to view so I took a leap of faith and ordered it anyway. I am so glad I did! The drapes are not only beautiful but provide privacy and serve to block the sun from the west facing window.” The rich textures of the materials are a great complement to any décor.

  1. Really it’s wonderful tutorial. Of course the darling little window makes it extra super cute. Love the uniform outside look. I think that makes it super professional.
