There’s no doubt that patio doors are a great way to flood your interior spaces with light, and they’re a quick and easy way to go in and out of your home. Unfortunately, some people shy away from a beautiful patio door installation because they worry about compromising their privacy.

You don’t have to worry about people peeking in through your patio door when you choose one of these window treatment solutions. They’ll increase the beauty of your interior spaces too!

Vertical Blinds

There’s no denying that vertical blinds are the most popular choice for sliding glass doors. That’s because they function the same way the door does—by sliding from side to side. Unfortunately, this type of window treatment also gets a bad rap for being ugly.

They don’t have to be! Consider ordering vertical blinds in a unique color or pattern. You can also play around with the size of the slats. One-inch slats will give your sliding door a unique, affordable look while 3.5-inch slats will make your space look a bit more modern.


Curtains aren’t just for windows. The right curtains can look great covering a sliding patio door too!

You can choose from room darkening curtains or keep the room light and airy with sheer curtains. They are easy to open and close, so coming and going isn’t problem. They also have the added benefit of reminding people that there’s a window there so they don’t walk through the glass thinking that the door is open!

Plantation Shutters

If you want patio doors that look different than everyone else’s, install plantation shutters. Most operate on a track so they can slide open and closed, just like the door, but you can also install them on hinges so they swing open and closed.

Shutters are a great idea for those who want to add a structured look to their home that warms up the space. They are especially striking when left in a natural wood finish.
