5 Best Window Treatments for Sliding Glass Doors in Boston

Sliding glass doors give you a great view of the world around your home, helping you relate to your surroundings. But it can be almost impossible to find a stylish window treatment, since they’re big, open horizontally and have hand levers and locks.

We’ve gathered five of the best window treatments for sliding glass doors in Boston to help you discover the proper option.

When you choose a window treatment expert like Louver Shop of Boston, you’ll have the choice to easily customize your new window treatments. With a variety of colors, fabrics and high-tech operating systems to choose from, your home can look just how you imagine it.

1. Sliding Shutter Panels

Plantation shutters might not be the first product you’d choose for your patio door. But bypass or bifold shutters are a solid way to increase energy efficiency. Or fit with the other shutters in your space. As they slide or fold out of the way, they give you privacy when you need it and allow the view when you are looking for it.

When you choose a customized plantation shutter manufacturer like Louver Shop of Boston, you’ll have the ability to select your material, color, louver size and more. We offer four premium bypass and bifolding models, from premier American hardwood and polymer to a hybrid of the two.

Our shutters are maintenance-free and include a lifetime limited warranty for peace of mind.

2. Sheer Shades

Sheer shades from Hunter Douglas resemble curtains but come with the usefulness of blinds. This window treatment has sheer, semi-opaque or opaque fabric to change harsh sunlight into a nice glow. Cord-free adjustable vanes float between the fabric for privacy and light control.

There’s a reason Silhouette® shades have stayed a customer preferred pick for more than 25 years. These shades are thoroughly customizable, so you can choose from a variety of different materials and colors to discover the best match for your house.

Searching for room-darkening capabilities? You can customize your window treatments to add the Duolite® roller shade.

3. Sliding Panels

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

When you want a view, the panels simply sit together to offer an unhindered view. When in use, they display their fashionable colors and designs.

When customizing your sliding panels, you’ll see more than 600 possibilities to select from—including colors and textures to varying opacities.

4. Honeycomb Shades

Were you aware your residence’s windows waste up to a third of your heating and cooling? Honeycomb shades are a great way to enhance your home’s energy efficiency, especially on big openings like sliding glass doors.

But just because you’re worried about saving energy doesn’t mean you have to compromise on beautiful style. This window covering gives you a drape-like feeling through soft fabric shades.

To customize your house’s energy savings, you can select from single-, double- and triple-cell construction. With up to six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets, Duette® gives your home one of the most energy-efficient window coverings you can purchase.

5. Roman Shades

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

When not in use, they stack or fold into neat pleats. When down, they give you a sleek, drape-like look, plus the strength of energy-efficient window coverings.

With Solera®, you can manage your use of energy with sleek style. This modern window treatment has the look of a Roman shade but delivers the incredible insulating potential of a honeycomb shade. Plus, you’ll see a diverse collection of premium woven and non-woven textiles to choose from as you craft your shades.

Want the look of a sliding panel that can be conveniently opened and closed? Vignette® does all that free of cords to mess up your view.

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