Bedroom Sliding Doors Window Treatments

I have an 8' wide sliding door in my bedroom going out to my patio. I want it to be totally dark when I am sleeping, but like to let the light in, in the daytime. I do not like the look of vertical blinds. What other patio window treatments would you recommend?



Hi Julie,

There are several types of window treatments for your sliding doors that you may consider. The best alternative to traditional vertical blinds is blackout draperies that you may hang with or without sheers. The good thing is that you have a wide variety of styles, colors and textures that you can choose from. Browse this collection of high quality yet affordable blackout panels that will give elegance to the room and provide complete darkness at night. You may also add beautiful sheer curtains to such draperies for more sophisticated look. When looking for sliding door curtains, choose those that could be moved easily, such as pleated curtains hanged on drapery rings.

If your bedroom has a modern interior style you can install sliding room darkening panels that have contemporary look and work well with wide patio doors. They are made of fabric and slide along an aluminum track.

The third option is install blackout window shades that you can combine with lightweight curtains. In this way you can use them at nights and keep them open during the daytime. Here is a good example of such mix of shades and draperies in the bedroom.

Hope it helps,
