Window Treatments For French Doors

Window Treatments For DoorsIf you own a home that features French Doors, chances are that’s probably one of the reasons you fell in love with your home in the first place. It’s important not to cover up the beautiful detail that French Doors have to offer, with heavy, layered draperies, that will eventually just end up getting in the way.

Whatever you’re style is, a good rule of thumb for choosing the best window treatments for French Doors is choosing a horizontal blind, shutter, or shade. A horizontal shade isn’t obstructive and looks great on virtually any French Door in any home.

If you want more of a rustic or French Country look to your doors, wooden shutters are the perfect window treatment for you. Their easy to use design makes it a breeze to open and close these shutters for light and privacy.

Window Treatments For Sliding Glass Doors

Window Treatments For DoorsDressing up a sliding glass door with the best window treatment can prove to be a little trickier than French Doors. When you are deciding on window treatments it’s best to keep a couple things in mind:

  • Heavy drapes and sliding glass doors do not mix (unless you enjoy struggling to open doors).
  • Horizontal blinds or shutters tend to swing side to side when the door is opened and closed. This causes horizontal window treatments to have a short lifespan on a sliding glass doors, plus they are obstructive.

Save your money by opting for vertical blinds or shades in a variety of colors and natural materials. Vertical blinds are a great option since they neatly stack to the side of the door. Vertical Honeycomb shades are a great option too! Vineyard Blind & Shutter recommends Honeycomb shades for additional insulation and energy savings on your monthly bill.
