Patio panels lend more privacy to your sliding glass door. They can filter or block light, and some control room temperature or noise. Solid color or patterned, sliding door curtains complete a patio door.
Whether you're headed out into the open air or retiring into your home, your sliding glass door is your portal to paradise. Perhaps your rustic kitchen opens onto a shady country-style porch. Or maybe your Mediterranean bedroom overlooks a sunbaked courtyard. However you define “paradise,” a sliding glass door serves to transition you from one haven into the next. Patio door curtains should allude somehow to this new experience waiting just beyond the glass. For example, envision a pool area decorated with ferns and elephant ear plants. What better way to integrate your slider into your own tropical retreat than using a bamboo patio panel? These durable window treatments do not block natural light entirely. Instead, sunshine filters through the thin slats in between the bamboo strips. At the same time, these panels provide a degree of privacy not possible with a bare sliding glass door. Moreover, you can use these natural panels in the kitchen to highlight surrounding decor. The rich color and texture of espresso or buff bamboo will match your wooden furnishings with similar hues and grains. But what if your patio door faces a bustling street or the rising sun? Blackout curtains for patio doors use thick fabric to keep out harsh light and prying eyes. Thermal patio panels block chilly drafts or heat waves that breach your sliding glass door. This insulates the room and reduces energy costs. However, sliding door curtains are not just for practical use. Their dazzling variety of colors and styles will coordinate well with your indoor and outdoor themes. Your patio door possibilities are endless! Sheer patio curtains foster privacy while letting in sunlight. These window treatments have a delicate, airy quality. There are also pinch pleat, back tab and grommet patio curtains, which hang from your clip rings or from attached fabric tabs or metal grommets. Simply push these panels to the side to reveal that breathtaking view beyond your slider! After all, sliding glass door curtains should enhance—not hinder—the view. Having a foot in two worlds has never been so beautiful until now!
