duette honeycomb shadesCellular Shades   

Thanks to their high energy efficiency, cellular shades are some of the best window treatments you can use to cover your sliding glass doors and large patio windows. If you live in a particularly hot or cold climate, then these are the shades for you. The honeycomb design of cellular shades traps air in distinct pockets, keeping temperatures consistent within your home. And because of the large size of sliding glass doors, it’s fairly easy for air to come in and escape through this vantage point. That’s why it’s so important that you find the best window treatment to mitigate this issue and promote energy savings in your home. 

With an extensive fabric collection, cellular shades can work with virtually any décor. Duette shades come in a variety of pleat sizes, colors, patterns, and textures so you can perfectly match your shades to the rest of your home.

Recommended Cellular Shades for Sliding Glass Doors:

The DuetteⓇ cellular shades are some of our most energy-efficient shades due to their honeycomb construction. For even greater insulation, the DuetteⓇ ArchitellaⓇ shades contain a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design. This construction holds more layers of fabric that are able to trap in more air for greater energy efficiency. The honeycomb pattern has been considered one of the most popular cellular shades among Hunter Douglas owners for its top-notch quality and performance. DuetteⓇ Honeycomb Shades are available in vertical side-to-side openings or sliding glass doors. 

Pair your DuetteⓇ Honeycomb Shades with the Vertiglide™ operating system specially made for vertical applications. This will give you the option to use either one shade to cover the entire expanse of windows or two independently operated shades for more light control.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are some of the most common types of window treatment used for large windows and sliding glass doors thanks to their easy operation. They are available in a wide range of colors, textures, and panel styles as well as materials, including vinyl, fabric, and aluminum making them an ideal fit in any home. Not only are our vertical blinds great for blocking out unwanted sunlight, but they can also be used as a luxurious room divider. Vertical blinds also have minimal stackback, maximizing your views and looking sleek at all times.

Recommended Vertical Blinds for Sliding Glass Doors:

We recommend using the Skyline® Gliding Window Panels or the Cadence® Soft Vertical Window Blinds to cover your sliding glass doors and patio windows. The Skyline® Gliding Window Panels are clean, crisp, and modern for a sleek look over any sized window. Open, they stack tightly to provide the maximum view while closed, they display their luxurious fabrics and texture. What’s even better about these is that you can choose the width of the blinds to create a seamless look. 

The Cadence® Soft Vertical Window Blinds are made from luxurious, flowing fabrics which are also sound-absorbent for ideal light control and privacy. The curved vanes mimic soft drapery folds that look elegant in your home and are equipped with our patented headrail to reduce light gaps and allow smooth, trouble-free operation.

Privacy Sheers

Our privacy sheers feature soft fabric vanes that are attached to a sheer face fabric for an elegant look. The sheers come in a wide range of fabrics, textures, and colors, which are all available in a room-darkening option or greater light control. Fabric sheers come in cut yardage so it’s easy to accommodate windows and sliding doors of all sizes. Luminette sheers can accommodate widths up to 192" and heights up to 120" and are available in hundreds of colors, patterns, and textures.

Recommended Privacy Sheers for Sliding Glass Doors

The Luminette® Privacy Sheers from Hunter Douglas are perfect for sliding glass doors as they offer a cross between classic sheer drapes and vertical blinds and can be adjusted to fit any sized window. These sheers diffuse sunlight and spread it out evenly throughout the room, giving you ultimate control over the light that enters your home increasing your privacy without reducing your view. Hunter Douglas Luminette® Privacy Sheers also offer the benefits of UV protection so that you don’t need to worry about your floors and furniture fading in color.

Trouble Shooting Size Accommodations

It’s fairly common for homeowners to struggle with how to cover their larger than average sliding glass doors and what the best window treatment options are. If you’re looking to cover an oversized patio window or slider, consider the Duette or Applause Vertiglide shades. Due to the 7.5" stack back and the fact that it doesn't take up a lot of the slider window when it's stacked back, these are some of the most popular choices for sliding glass doors. Also, take a look at some of our motorized roller shades that come down from the top if you have a slider that is out of size specs for anything else. These are easily modified to fit any space, any style, any home.
