Top 5 Window Treatments for Sliding Glass Doors

“I just don’t know what to do with my sliding glass doors!”  Many clients visit our showroom at Naples Shutter with a clear idea of what they want on their windows – shutters, blinds, shades, draperies, etc. – but the comment we hear over and over again is, “What do I do with my sliding glass doors?”  That’s why we created this handy list of the most popular and functional ways to treat sliding glass doors.  While some people choose to leave them uncovered, most clients prefer to add some kind of window treatment to these large openings so they gain privacy, light control, and heat management.  Take a look…

1:  Sliding Plantation Shutters

Okay, okay, yes we are a plantation shutter factory so we may seem biased, but plantation shutters do make a wonderful addition to sliding glass doors in many cases.  Plantation shutters are not just limited to windows.  They are the perfect complement to doors of all kinds, including sliding glass doors.  If you have shutters on your windows, create a continuous look by extending them to your doors as well.  They offer tremendous architectural appeal, light control, heat control, and a clear view outside. 

  • Carry the look of shutters throughout your home

  • Control sunlight by opening/closing louvers or sliding shutter panels open/closed

  • Reduce heat from the sun’s glare

  • Panels slide open horizontally to give you easy access to the outdoors

  • Architectural appeal—visible both outside and inside
