The sliding door with a glass panel requires a form of window treatment for privacy. However, it can be very challenging to choose the right window care.

Because there is a lot of traffic that passes through the sliding door, especially during the summer, it is important to choose the treatment that can be opened or closed easily. Also, they must withstand heavy use.

Here are some window treatments that can help you control the light and privacy on the sliding glass door.

1. Ordinary curtains

You can choose a simple window treatment option by installing an ordinary curtain. A good choice for sliding doors using a series of curtains. Large windows fill in the room with lots of natural light. Thus, if privacy is not a problem and you don't want to fully close the window, then use a transparent curtain to filter glare when you still allow the light to pass. You can tie the curtain as needed for maximum natural light.

2. Curtains and blinds

While the window curtain is functional and allows to control light, the blinds add texture and colour to a room. You can install curtains and blinds to take advantage of the benefits. For example, you can install curtains and roller blinds to help create a soothing atmosphere in the kitchen and dining room.

3. Roman blinds.

If you need a modern design that is free of chaos, then consider Roman blinds. You can hang it on several panels to increase control over light. Make sure you install it on the door frame to avoid interference with door operation.

4. Woven Shades.

Use woven shades to give your Windows a fresh and natural display. Woven nuances also add depth. Dark woven shades can protect interior furniture so they are not damaged by dangerous UV rays. In addition, they can provide the bedroom with an upgraded Bohemian feel.

5. Shutters

If you have concerns about privacy in your indoor space or you want to make the indoors cosier, then consider installing shutters. You can install the folding shutters to add maximum privacy when closed and open to allow movement and light through the door. You can use folding wooden window leaves on the balcony to make the room look more inviting and natural.

6. Vertical blinds

Vertical blinds are a great choice for adding retro effects to a room. While vertical curtains are generally used in office settings, they are also ideal for adding styles in domestic settings.
