Patio Door Window Treatment Guide for Homes

Patio doors are a wonderful home addition.They let light in beautifully and give easy access to a backyard or patio, which is ideal for hosting gatherings and keeping energetic children entertained. But how do you cover them? Their combination of height and use can make them a headache for homeowners. Don’t let decision fatigue get you down, though. At Window Wonders, we’ve gathered up five of our favorite patio door treatments from Hunter Douglas to make your decision easy.

Vertical Solutions® Vertical Blinds and Skyline® Gliding Window Panels from Hunter Douglas near Sedona, Arizona (AZ)

Hunter Douglas Styles We Love

Vertical blinds are a classic patio door window treatment because they are effective, affordable, and easy. Vertical Solutions® Vertical Blinds from Hunter Douglas elevate the design with fabric and vinyl vane options in a wide range of colors and patterns. These blinds go above and beyond by reducing sound pollution to make your home a calm oasis.

Drapery is usually a great solution for tall windows, but with the frequent use of a patio door, it can be inconvenient. Cadence® Soft Vertical Blinds solve that. They combine the practicality of vertical blinds with the soft, draping nature of curtains for an elegant look that is hassle-free to operate. The patented headrail makes Cadence® easy to adjust and hides the mechanisms in a matching fabric. A perfect option when it comes to patio door window treatments!

The unfussy lines of Skyline® Gliding Window Panels make them perfect minimalist accompaniments for your patio door and option to consider when it comes to patio door window treatments. The beautiful panels come in over 600 colors and a wide variety of openness and opacities for a customizable look that remains a feature even when stacked back to operate the patio door.

We love the energy efficiency of cellular shades. The air pocket trapped within the honeycomb design of the shades insulates your home from outside temperatures, keeping it more comfortable and easing the burden on your HVAC system and wallet. But did you know that the Duette® Honeycomb Shades from Hunter Douglas are available in a vertical orientation? Their patented Vertiglide® system gives you the same cellular structure and sleek lines but scaled appropriately for use on oversized windows and patio doors.

Another unexpected contender for patio doors is a set of oversized shutters such as the Heritance® Hardwood Shutters from Hunter Douglas. Made from high-quality stains and paints with Integra™ Finish for durability, they’re great solutions for high-traffic entrances such as patio doors. Heritance® Hardwood Shutters are available in heights as tall as 116” with widths up to 312”. Choose a center-split design so they show off their beautiful style while the patio doors are in use and even more so when they’re closed for privacy. It’s the most elegant solution for patio door window treatments. Plus, the extra durability means they’ll last a lifetime.
