Sliding Glass Door? There’s a Window Covering for That

At Colorado Blinds & Design, we receive numerous inquiries about window covering solutions for sliding glass doors. Our clients seem intimidated by their size and the overwhelming possibilities of products that can be applied over the door. Essentially, sliding glass doors are just very large windows. If you think of them in these simple terms, the task of finding a product that fits your budget and coordinates with your interior seems less daunting.

Below you can find brief summaries of the vertical products that Hunter Douglas®, our FAVORITE brand, offers.


Duette Architella® and Applause Vertiglide® Honeycomb Shades: Just like it’s horizontal application, vertical honeycomb shades are great insulators. This shade is ideal for a sliding glass door that receives a lot of sun exposure. This type of vertical application is also ideal in an open room(s) or area(s) that have honeycomb shades covering their windows.




Luminette® Privacy Sheers: This unique product combines draperies and sheers. Operable fabric covered vanes are surrounded by a sheer fabric. A wand control tilts the fabric covered vanes open or closed. This shade is ideal for sliding glass doors that do not necessarily get a lot of sun exposure. It is ideal for consumers who desire sun and a view during the day, but privacy during the evening hours.
