More Questions about Glass Doors?
Since this high traffic area of your home can be tricky to cover, we thought you should know…you’re not alone! Covering glass doors can be challenging for most homeowners, and we get a lot of questions. We also have questions to get you thinking about your own project…
How Do Your Doors Move?
One of the top considerations for covering glass doors is the way your doors function. This will have a huge impact on the type of window treatment that’s possible. Doors that open and close into the home, like patio doors and french doors, tend to do best with horizontal blinds and shades. Sliding glass doors that move side-to-side function well with window coverings that match that movement, such as vertical blinds and shades. Although, it’s not unheard of to pair the opposite, it really depends on the make of the door and the layout of your home. Then, there are interior shutters that have options for both sliding function or framed panels attached to glass sections.
Which Type of Door or Window Are You Covering?
While some “doors” are entirely glass, like sliding doors, others have glass panes, like a window nested inside of the door. Before you begin your search, you should know what type of glass–and what size you’re covering. One of the reasons happens to be how the window covering would fit on the door, or whether it would have to be hung on a track from above.
What Are the Best Features for Door Coverings?
Many homeowners love the way smart shades can open and close instantly with a tap or voice command. It makes life so much easier. Cordless is another favorite, removing additional clutter and obstacles. But, think about the reasons you want coverings, and you’ll discover the features you like best. Chances are, you love the entering light, but you want UV protection and softer light. Sheer and translucent fabrics are a great option that can deliver that. You might love the daytime light and views, but feel a need for privacy as the sun goes down. There are light filtering, view-through options that offer a blocked-off setting as well. And then, there’s the discomfort of bare glass–it can make your home feel cold in the winter and exhausting in the heat of summer. If that’s the case, energy efficient window treatments will rescue you!
