Sliding glass doors provide a nice view of the outdoors, helping you connect with your surroundings. But it can be tricky to find a stylish window treatment, since they’re big, glide horizontally and have hand levers and locks.
We’ve compiled five of the best window treatments for sliding glass doors in Huntsville to help you select the proper fit.
When you work with a window treatment expert like Louver Shop of North Alabama, you’ll have the ability to readily customize your selection. With a variety of colors, fabrics and high-tech operating systems to choose from, your space can look just how you picture it.
1. Sliding Shutter Panels
Plantation shutters likely aren’t the first thing you’d consider for your patio door. But bypass or bifold shutters are a nice way to boost energy efficiency. Or complement the other shutters within your space. As they move or fold out of the way, they give you privacy when you need it and allow the light when you want it.
When you select a customized plantation shutter manufacturer like Louver Shop of North Alabama, you’ll get to select your material, color, louver size and more. We provide four top-of-the-line bypass and bifolding designs, from premier American hardwood and polymer to a hybrid of the two.
Our shutters are maintenance-free and include a lifetime limited warranty for peace of mind.
2. Sheer Shades
Sheer shades from Hunter Douglas have the look of curtains but have the performance of blinds. This window treatment has sheer, semi-opaque or opaque fabric to change blinding sunlight into a welcoming glow. Cord-free adjustable vanes are suspended between the material for privacy and light control.
There’s a reason Silhouette® shades have been a customer preferred pick for more than 25 years. This window treatment is completely customizable, so you can choose from a variety of different fabrics and colors to figure out the best match for your house.
Looking for room-darkening capabilities? You can upgrade your window treatments to add the Duolite® roller shade.

4. Honeycomb Shades
Did you realize your home’s windows lose up to a third of your heating and cooling? Honeycomb shades are a fantastic addition to boost your residence’s energy efficiency, particularly on wide openings like sliding glass doors.
But just because you’re working on energy efficiency doesn’t mean you have to let go of good looks. This window treatment gives you a drape-like look through soft fabric shades.
To individualize your residence’s energy savings, you can pick from single-, double- and triple-cell features. With up to six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets, Duette® provides one of the most energy-efficient window treatments you can purchase.
5. Roman Shades
Roman shades are one of the most useful window treatments for sliding glass doors.
When open, they stack or fold into neat pleats. When lowered, they offer a smooth, drape-like appearance, plus the added bonus of energy-efficient window treatments.
With Solera®, you can save energy with smart style. This useful window treatment looks like a Roman shade but gives your home the powerful insulating abilities of a honeycomb shade. Plus, you’ll see a full collection of luxury woven and non-woven materials to select from as you create your window treatments.
