The Perfect Window Treatments for Covering Doors

Sliding glass doors, patio doors, and french doors all add to–and create–an amazing atmosphere in any home. But while they can be amazing, they can also come with some drawbacks. Maintain all the benefits of your glass doors with the perfect window treatments for covering doors. Let’s take a look at how to find the right fit for your doors. 

A Grand Entrance

Your front door is the first thing guests will see when entering your home. This is why security is so important when it comes to covering doors in your entryway. Whether it’s someone dropping off a package,  a door-to-door salesperson, or even neighbors walking by, without window treatments, they’ll be able to see right into your home. If you have sidelights or other slim windows on either side of your front door, we’re ready to cover those, too.

Ideas for Patio Doors

Now that spring is in full bloom, you’ll most likely be using your patio doors quite a bit! Having the perfect window coverings is essential for making your transition from the inside of your house to your backyard as flawless as possible. Sheer shades are great for patio doors and are well-equipped to handle all the foot traffic they’ll face this spring.

Window Treatments for Sliding

Sitting down to eat family meals can be a wonderful part of the day. But, they can easily be ruined without the right window coverings. Sunset occurs exactly at eye-level, heating up your dining area and leaving family members fighting over certain seats. Combined with this time of day, sliding glass doors are a popular feature, which means the whole experience is even more intense than a simple window. In addition to the discomfort from the sunshine, your privacy is essentially non-existent. Sliders can end up causing a long list of issues, like glare and floor damage due to that harsh sunlight. Covering doors in this area is a must.
