Glass Door and Wide Window Coverings

by Judy


I have a glass door in my bedroom leading to the balcony. The door is made of aluminum with an enamel finish so the magnetic rods do not work. The door opens outwards or tip open from the top. I need the coverings to darken the room.
Thank you.


There are several window coverings that work well with wide glass windows and doors. You may install vertical blinds, or sliding window panels, or hang window drapes. The choice depends on your taste and your entire room decor.

Vertical blinds are easy to operate, they allow you to adjust the amount of light coming into the room and they are considered the best option for large balcony and patio doors. However, some people don’t like their look and believe they are outdated. As alternative, you may install sliding window panels that have a sleek modern appearance and slide along an aluminum track. If your glass door casing is not deep enough you can install outside mounted blinds or panels. In this case the headrail installs above the window and its brackets are mounted to the wall or ceiling.

If you choose to hang draperies, you may put drapery rod above your window on the wall. If there is no space between window and ceiling, ceiling mounted traverse curtain rod would be a perfect choice for you, or you may install standard curtain rod with ceiling mounted brackets.

Hope it helps you,
