 Window Treatments For Sliding Glass Doors

In most homes, sliding glass doors are the biggest “windows” in the house – representing a huge area of glass to manage. Because sliding glass doors allow in a lot of light, heat, and cold into a room, and are opened and closed frequently, the window treatment solution can be challenging. 

Happily, though, gone are the days when there were just a few options for window treatments for sliding glass doors. 

For example, grommet panels are a new trend in window coverings, and they function very well with sliding glass doors / patio doors, with the decorative grommets adding a modern touch to a classic design. 

Draw pinch pleat drapery remains the most popular window covering for sliding glass doors, but you can update traditional pinch pleat drapes by changing the pleat style. In our drapery workroom, we create all types of custom draperies, including:

Goblet pleat drapes

Euro pleat drapes

Cartridge pleat drapes 

For added elegance, you can cover a traditional pinch pleat drape with a valance (such as a cornice or a swag). A decorative rod (such as an iron rod or wooden rod) also adds a nice design element to window treatments for sliding glass doors. 

Please note that Roman Shades don’t work well on sliding glass doors. The sheer size of the shades makes them too heavy to raise and lower. The window treatment can be split into two shades, but then, there’s a light gap (and visual gap) between them.
