5 Best Window Treatments for Sliding Glass Doors in Birmingham

Sliding glass doors give you a wide view of the world around your home, helping you find a link with your surroundings. But it can be tricky to find a beautiful window treatment, since they’re large, glide horizontally and have hand levers and locks.

We’ve gathered five of the best window treatments for sliding glass doors in Birmingham to help you select the right selection.

When you work with a window treatment pros like Louver Shop of Birmingham, you’ll have the choice to easily customize your choice. With a variety of colors, fabrics and high-tech operating systems to choose, your home can look just how you envision it.

1. Sliding Shutter Panels

Plantation shutters likely aren’t the first product you’d choose for your patio door. But bypass or bifold shutters are a great way to increase energy efficiency. Or fit with the rest of the shutters around your space. As they slide or fold out of the way, they offer privacy when you need it and allow the light when you want it.

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

Our shutters are no-maintenance and include a lifetime limited warranty for peace of mind.

2. Sheer Shades

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

There’s a reason Silhouette® shades have stayed a customer top pick for more than 25 years. This window treatment is completely customizable, so you can choose from a variety of different fabrics and colors to find the best look for your space.

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

3. Sliding Panels

For the most modern style, there’s Skyline® sliding panels from Hunter Douglas. A new take on panel track blinds, these wide fabric vertical blinds are certain to show a statement on tall windows.

When you’re not using them, the panels precisely come together to make a clear view. When you need privacy, they show off their gorgeous colors and designs.

When ordering your sliding panels, you’ll have more than 600 styles to pick from—ranging from colors and textures to a variety of opacities.

4. Honeycomb Shades

Were you aware your house’s windows lose up to a third of your heating and cooling? Honeycomb shades are a good way to improve your house’s energy efficiency, especially on large openings like sliding glass doors.

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

To individualize your home’s energy efficiency, you can choose from single-, double- and triple-cell shades. With up to six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets, Duette® offers one of the most energy-efficient solutions you can install in your home.

5. Roman Shades

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

When not in use, they stack or fold into clean pleats. When down, they give you a sleek, drape-like look, plus the convenience of energy-efficient shades.

With Solera®, you can conserve energy with smart style. This modern window treatment has the look of a Roman shade but delivers the impressive insulating potential of a honeycomb shade. Plus, you’ll have a huge collection of luxury woven and non-woven materials to choose from as you customize your shades.

Want the look of a sliding panel that can be effortlessly opened and closed? Vignette® does all that free of cords to distract from the outside view.

In addition, there’s a variety of sheer, light-filtering and room-darkening options to select from. You can also customize your Vignette shades with Architella® for more insulation or Duolite® for blackout capabilities.
