Arriving at the perfect door and window coverings can turn out to be a very complicated and arduous process if you do not have all the vital information available.
Here’s a quick list of the important factors you must keep in mind while choosing window coverings to match your house decor and furnishings.
- Door and window styleDifferent styles of patio doors have their own specific window treatments that work out the best in terms of looks and functionality.For example, roller shades, panel tracs and shutters are best suited for sliding glass doors, as they do not interfere with the usage of handles.For a swinging door you can try a cordless Roman shade by Levolor. Also, if you are going to use the patio door blinds frequently, you will want something that is user friendly.
If you want the blind slats to be fully off the window when gathered, for an unobstructed view, instead of stacking at the middle or sides, you will need to add some extra width or height to it. This increases the look quotient of your window.
If you want the door window coverings to span the entire patio door, then you should use either vertical door blinds or panel tracs. For smaller windows, you may need only a horizontal mini blind or a small faux wood blind.There are so many options available, like ceiling mount vertical blind, if you want to hide the gap between the ceiling and the door frame.
- Protection from heat The panes of door window glass leave your home vulnerable to the outside weather. You will need to use appropriate door window coverings which act as insulators to provide resistance to extreme temperatures.For example, vertical cellular shades, also called honeycomb shades, help in keeping the cool air out and save on your heating bills. Similarly, solar shades or roller blinds can combat heat and screen you from the sun’s harmful Ultra Violet rays as well as vinyl shutters
- Privacy While selecting the perfect window covering for patio doors, you must choose the one that allows natural light to stream in from outside during the day, at the same time providing coverage from external view.There are many options available for this purpose ranging from blinds, be it vertical, roller blinds or faux wood blinds to shutters, pleated shades and so on.
There are many variations available in window coverings in terms of colours, designs and fabric. You can also customize them as per your personal style, window type, interior decor and furnishings.If your patio doors already have a textured glass to obstruct view from outside, you may opt for a simple style.This would be ideal for window coverings on patio doors that face a lot of traffic. While the window coverings would remain protected from being dirtied or torn down due to the heavy traffic, your interiors will appear stylish and plush.
Finally, you can narrow down from the various options available in the door window coverings for your door and window based on your budget.
