The Most Common Questions about Covering Glass Doors
Do you have questions about covering sliding doors, french doors, patio doors or the entryway? You’re not alone! Because the windows of doors come in all different sizes, and the movement of doors can be unique, covering doors can leave you feeling overwhelmed. We’re here to answer some of the most frequently asked questions.
What should you use to cover a glass front door?
With large panes of glass on the front door, or even sidelights–the narrow windows that flank each side of the door, you can feel the need to cover your front door with window coverings for privacy, security and light control. Entry doors can be covered with shades, blinds or shutters, depending on the makeup of your door itself, as well as the layout of your home. Get ideas here.
What’s best for covering a sliding glass door?
The large glass panes of sliding glass doors bring in a tremendous amount of natural light and beautiful views. The problems arise when the light and heat overwhelm the space. Did you know that just about any type of window covering can be used with sliders? Many homeowners think that vertical blinds are the only answer. While you can still get vertical blinds, you have other options to explore. Vertical shades come in wide panels, honeycomb shades and privacy sheers that look like curtains, but rotate interior vanes for a unique light control experience. Plantation shutters are offered with two different types of operating systems–both ideal for sliding glass doors. And, custom draperies and curtains are a gorgeous option for covering sliding doors.
How do I block the light with french doors?
Take a moment to consider what “blocking the light” means to you. Do you need room darkening for your french doors, or has the intense sunshine just gotten on your nerves so much that you’re desperate? If it’s room darkening, then yes, blocking the light is exactly what you should do. There are a number of shades and shutters that will help make that a reality, such as roman shades, roller shades and honeycomb shades. If you’d simply like to reduce the amount or intensity of the entering light, you can cover french doors with any type of shades, blinds, shutters or drapery. For reducing the glare and filtering the sunshine, many homeowners love roman shades, roller shades, bamboo shades and sheer shades.
Can you install blinds on a door without drilling?
Yes! The newest innovation for installing door shades is called TrackGlide. This operating system does not use hardware to drill into the door to install the window coverings. Instead, the track adheres to the edge of the window frame–right next to the glass. The shades glide up and down the track, offering privacy, light control and energy efficiency.
