Additional Information for Covering Glass Doors

Covering the doors of your home can be complicated. You know you need window treatments for your doors, but you might not even know what’s available or what considerations are the most important. Let’s explore some of the most frequently asked questions…

What type of window treatments can be used for doors?

You can use most any window treatments to cover glass doors. Plantation shutters, roman shades, roller shades, sheer shades & honeycomb shades are popular choices when covering doors that have a panel of glass, like french doors and patio doors. Another favorite is window blinds–ones that rise and lower horizontally. When it comes to covering sliding doors, many people like to use vertical window treatments, like drapery, panel track blinds, vertical blinds and vertical honeycomb shades, as these match the sliding movement of the doors. But, doors that open vertically can also feature shades that open up and down.

How do the coverings attach?

Similar to the way window shades and blinds attach to windows, they can are mounted. But, this can depend greatly on the make of the door. Sliding window treatments typically hang from above the window, from a track or other hardware. Horizontal often attach above the window part of the door. When there is too small of an area for hardware installation, our TrackGlide operating system can adhere to the window frame of the door instead of hardware installation.

What are the available features?

Just because you want door coverings doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have all the bells and whistles like you see for window coverings. Many of our window treatments for glass doors can be equipped with automation, cordless design, top down bottom up, energy efficiency, dual functioning shades and room darkening–to name a few.

Do the door coverings have to match the window shades?

Window treatments should coordinate with surrounding decor, but they do not need to match. Many clients find that they do have a personal preference when they see things paired together. We like to show you both options–those that are matching and those with similar fabrics and colors. From there, you can decide which look fits your style the best.

What about the door handles?

Door handles are just one of the unique features of doors that can interrupt the way your home functions when it comes to door coverings. This is one of the reasons it can be very helpful to work with a window covering specialist. The smallest details often create the biggest challenges. Our designers can show you how we account for the door knob or handle, and based on your door’s unique layout, what we would recommend that would work best. There are a number of options available for covering doors without disabling the function of the door itself.
