5 Best Window Treatments for Sliding Glass Doors in Detroit

Sliding glass doors offer a wonderful view of the world around your home, helping you connect with your surroundings. But it can be tricky to find the right window treatment, since they’re big, move horizontally and have hand levers and locks.

We’ve found five of the best window treatments for sliding glass doors in Detroit to help you choose the best choice.

When you go with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Metro Detroit, you’ll have the ability to easily customize your new window treatments. With a variety of colors, fabrics and high-tech operating systems to go with, your home can look just how you picture it.

1. Sliding Shutter Panels

Plantation shutters probably aren’t the first product you’d choose for your patio door. But bypass or bifold shutters are a great way to boost energy efficiency. Or match the remaining shutters around your space. As they push or fold out of the way, they provide privacy when you need it and provide the light when you want it.

When you work with a customizable plantation shutter manufacturer like Louver Shop of Metro Detroit, you’ll have the capability to select your material, color, louver size and more. We provide four top-of-the-line bypass and bifolding styles, from premier American hardwood and polymer to a combination of the two.

Our shutters are low-maintenance and come with a lifetime limited warranty for peace of mind.

2. Sheer Shades

Sheer shades from Hunter Douglas have the look of curtains but come with the functionality of blinds. This window treatment has sheer, semi-opaque or opaque fabric to transform harsh sunlight into a pleasant glow. Cord-free adjustable vanes hang between the sheers for privacy and light control.

There’s a reason Silhouette® shades have stayed a customer favorite for more than 25 years. These shades are entirely customizable, so you can choose from a collection of different fabrics and colors to find the best match for your house.

Searching for room-darkening capabilities? You can customize your shades to include the Duolite® roller shade.

3. Sliding Panels

For the most sleek look, there’s Skyline® sliding panels from Hunter Douglas. A updated take on panel track blinds, these broad fabric vertical blinds are sure to show a statement on tall windows.

When open, the panels cleanly stack together to make a wide-open view. When you need privacy, they display their fashionable colors and textures.

When creating your sliding panels, you’ll find more than 600 styles to choose from—ranging from colors and textures to varying opacities.

4. Honeycomb Shades

Did you know your home’s windows waste up to a third of your heating and cooling? Honeycomb shades are a smart addition to enhance your home’s energy efficiency, particularly on wide openings like sliding glass doors.

But just because you’re thinking about saving energy doesn’t mean you have to let go of beautiful style. This window covering offers a drape-like feel through soft fabric shades.

To further help your home’s energy efficiency, you can select from single-, double- and triple-cell options. With up to six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets, Duette® delivers one of the most energy-efficient shades you can order.

5. Roman Shades

Roman shades are one of the most functional window treatments for sliding glass doors.

When open, they stack or fold into tidy pleats. When down, they give you a modern, drape-like appearance, plus the convenience of energy-efficient window coverings.

With Solera®, you can manage your use of energy in style. This hybrid window treatment has the look of a Roman shade but offers the incredible insulating abilities of a honeycomb shade. Plus, you’ll see a huge collection of luxurious woven and non-woven materials to pick from as you customize your window treatments.

Ready for the fashion of a sliding panel that can be easily moved? Vignette® achieves all that with no cords to distract from your view.

Additionally, there’s a collection of sheer, light-filtering and room-darkening options to select from. You can also customize your Vignette shades with Architella® for more insulation or Duolite® for blackout capabilities.
