Great New Ideas for Covering Patio Doors!
In all my years of working in the window treatment industry, I think that people stress the most over what to put on their sliding patio doors. Most will also tell you they “Don’t want verticals!”. Well, verticals are great for their versatility and Hunter Douglas always stays ahead of the trends by offering new styles and fabrics. But this article is going to be about much more than verticals.
With clean lines and a sleek contemporary look, they are either open or closed by stacking behind each other and can open to one side or split stack. They make great room dividers too! The panels come in a variety of fashion-forward fabric options to choose from in the Designer Roller and Screen Shade Collections and can be switched out for different looks or seasons.
Insulating and Streamlined
The Vertiglide™ that is offered with Duette® and Applause® Honeycomb programs are unparalleled in their insulating features along with how streamlined they look. Inside or outside mounted, the stack is always a minimal 6.5 inches so as to no block much of your view and are available in one sided opening, split stack and center stack. Honeycomb shades are very popular in themselves, and now you have a matching vertical option! They are great at keeping the cold out in the winter months, and the heat out in the summer months, and practically disappear when you are not using them.
Casual Drapery on a Gliding Headrail
A relatively new product by Hunter Douglas is a vertical solution called the Vignette® Traversed™ with Vertiglide™ that matches their Vignette® Roman Shade program. It is offered in a wide variety of fabrics from casual linen to textured silks. What is awesome about this product is that it has a considerably smaller stack than any other drapery-type product and yet gives you that contemporary and softer look. Check out our video to get a better idea of how they look and operate:
Luxury in Luminette® Privacy Sheers and Modern Draperies
The Luminette® brand is a more formal look with the widest range of light control possible. They have a sheer face fabric with attached soft fabric vanes that rotate to keep light out. The Modern Draperies feature beautiful woven fabrics that offer the look and function of traditional draperies while making a modern design statement. Both styles, or even a combination of the two, are a great way to cover wide expanses and are available with PowerGlide® 2.1 with Platinum™ Technology.
The Options are Endless
Vertical treatments are not the only option for your patio doors either. Many horizontal styles will work great whether it be one large shade or two separate side-by-side shades with one top treatment to give it that finished look. Shutters are another option with our bypass track system, as shown below, or bi-fold track system.
Depending on your needs and style, the designers at Aero Drapery & Blind stay on top of current trends and are great at helping you choose what will function and look best in your home.
