Types of Treatments to Use with Doors
When you’ve got a glass, sliding-door in your home, you know that window treatments will inevitably become something that you need to consider. These giant windows are something that we see as perks when we first start to look into a home, but they are a little bit trickier to work with when you’re trying to find a treatment that will work with the overall look of your home, while also providing you the control that you’d like over your sliding door.
With the number of treatments that we have to offer at Arjay’s Window Treatments, we’ve come up with some creative ways that we can incorporate treatments with your windows that you’ll wind up loving. Here are a few of our favorite options.
Pull Down Shades
If you have french doors in your home, shades that pull down are a fantastic option to choose from. These shades not only give you a lot of control with the amount of lighting that’s coming into your home, but they can make it easier to have throughout your home.
If your french doors are connected to the dining area or the kitchen of your home, you will likely have plenty of other windows that you have to factor in. If you would like to keep the overall flow of the space that you already have, then pull down blinds are a great choice. They make a variety of pull down window treatments for windows that can also be used for shades, so it’ll be much easier to find something that you can be consistent with.
Aside from that, it’s much nicer to have a window treatment that fits your door perfectly. Options like drapes and sliding vertical blinds are certainly an option, but with doors that open outwards, the last thing that you’re going to want to have to deal with is an object that’s getting in the way.
One of the most common treatments that we use for sliding glass doors is vertical blinds. They’re a common style, but they work so well that there’s very little reason to consider other options. When you think of these, imagine something similar to your standard blinds, but rather than standing horizontally, the slats will be vertical.
Connected by a bar at the top of the sliding door, your blinds will be easy to move thanks to the wand of the blinds. These make it easy to open and close the slats, but also move the slats so that they’re entirely open, or entirely closed. That being said, this feature makes it easy to use this window treatment similarly to how you would use blinds; giving you plenty of control from the sun, gorgeous views and a look that’s easy to incorporate into a variety of aesthetics.
Another look that we see commonly used for doors are drapes. If you like having something that is flowy, light and can add some texture to your space, then drapes might be the perfect option for the doors that you have in your home. There are a variety of colors and designs that you can choose from with this particular option, which makes it easy to add them into your home and create an overall feel or theme in your home.
If aesthetic or theme is something that you really want to focus on within your space, then incorporating drapes into the design is something that you should strongly consider. These are one of the best window treatments to add styling points while also taking care of the design factors.
If you’re less concerned about the aesthetic of the actual window treatment, and you are simply looking for the coverage and protection for the interior of your home, then window tinting is another fantastic choice that you’re able to choose. This option is available for all forms of windows and is extremely successful when working with glass doors.
A major benefit to this particular form of window treatment is that it’s extremely easy to incorporate this throughout a home. With this treatment, you can enjoy less powerful beams of sunlight, protection for the interior of your home, and you don’t have to worry so much about any design aspects. This is a great option for doors that lead out to an incredible view. If that’s something that you really want to focus on, adding the window tint, and not obscuring the view of the window, will provide you with the best of both worlds.
These are the primary types of window treatments that will be used when looking to cover a screen door. If there are certain issues or concerns that you have, let us know and we’ll do our best to assist you.
