Types Of Sliding Glass Door Window Coverings

When it comes to covering your sliding glass door area, a notoriously difficult and highly trafficked area of the house, there are many options, but which one is the right one for you? In today’s blog we are going to cover the many options that we have available for you that you can use in order to get the best coverage possible for the sliding glass door area of your home. With so much flexibility for any decorating style and budget, you can bet that we have the perfect setup just for you. Check out our YouTube video to see some examples!


Vertical/Vinyl Slats

A very popular option! Easy to install and to maintain. People may not realize, but these come with a wide variety of options for your vertical slats. There are different textures (not just smooth!), colors, and materials. They don’t just have to be plain vinyl, they can be fabric colored and more. 



These are classic and highly dependable. They come in a variety of colors and styles and can offer things that Vinyl and other types of coverings can't, like being able to blackout any incoming sunlight for your home theater or baby room since they eliminate light gaps better than anything else.


Roller Shades/Solar Shades

Just like roller shades on your windows, you can get roller shades installed over your sliding glass door area. They offer incredible coverage and ease of use since they can be motorized for quick opening and closing yet still offer incredible privacy and light options similar to roller shades on your windows. You can also get solar shades installed which is a great choice for low light areas!


Sliding Panels

These are typically on the higher end of the budget, but they are worth every penny! They provide the most elegant and timeless look that will add a touch of luxury to any room. These are similar to roller shades, but these are 12 inch panels that slide from side to side and stack up on each other to provide a minimal footprint. 


Honeycomb Shades

Instead of moving up and down, these are cut in a fashion that means that they go from side to side, other than that, they are the same amazing, energy efficient honeycomb shades that you know and love. Great for sun-facing sliding doors. 


Plantation Shutters

If you already have plantation shutters around your home, then these are a perfect fit for you. They can be tailored to roll from side to side to allow for maximum mobility and ease of use. They can be ordered to fit with hinges that swing outward from the door, which is nice too if you have the space.
