Best Shades for Sliding Glass Doors

Big, beautiful, and often our portals to patios and decks, sliding glass doors are a fabulous addition to homes. Whether you walk through your sliding glass door to get to your patio grill or stroll out of it to relax on the recliners on your deck, sliding glass doors can be customized to your needs and surroundings. Speaking of customization, many of us choose to cover our sliding glass doors with a window treatment. This not only offers privacy but keeps the cold out during the winter and heat out during the summer due to added insulation and shade. Unfortunately, finding a chic shade that also provides many functional benefits can be hard when it comes to sliding glass doors. That is why we are here to discuss the best shades for sliding glass doors from Hunter Douglas, including Luminette® Privacy Sheers.

Best Shades for Privacy

Whether you are in a suburb, city, or beach town, privacy is something that many of us value. After all, no one wants the world to be able to look into their homes! That is why Luminette® Privacy Sheers are one of the best shades for sliding glass doors within homes that value privacy. These custom vertical shades offer the soft romance available with sheers and the drama of drapes all while offering easy operation. In fact, these shades feature rotating fabric vanes to give you 180 degrees of light control while softly filtering harsh sunlight. Additionally, all fabrics within our collection of Luminette® Privacy Sheers are available in cut yardage. This means that you can coordinate fabrics and create decorative accents, including duvets and pillows, to create a uniform appearance that any design aficionado would be impressed by.
