Vertical blinds are perfect for large or small windows, French doors, patio doors and bay windows. They offer a neat, streamlined appearance and are well-suited for narrower windows or doorways because of their height conscious design.
Many designers use vertical blinds in front of patio doors to set moods and substitute for or complement draperies. Opening this style of blinds can be configured with a one-way draw, spit draw, center stack or opposite stack.They are perfect for rooms that receive a lot of sunlight. Payless Decor, an online retailer of quality blinds, sells a vertical blind made of a sturdy PVC material. With white on the outside, the blinds reflect the harsh rays of the sun, thus saving on electricity bills.
Another flavor of luxury vertical blinds are those made with faux wood and gorgeous fabrics. Such verticals are a perfect way to tie together a patio door, an entire wall or a roomful of windows.

Sliding Panels offer unique alternatives to vertical blinds and can provide a modern look that is highly functional. Rather than having many slats, a sliding panel has 3 to 6 panels of fabric that sit under a sliding track. To those that think of vertical blinds as more commercial, a sliding panel may be the unique window treatment that fits your patio door best.
Our Door and Divider alternatives are made from beautiful woven woods and create an almost curtain feel out of bamoo and may be perfect for your sliding glass door.
Because they offer a consistent look between your windows and doors, designers are beginning to use horizontal blinds to cover patio doors. Preventing the full conversion from vertical to horizontal, however, is the makeup of these blinds. Horizontal blinds on patio doors stack at the top of the door, which can inevitably get in the way of entering and exiting the doorway. Additionally, horizontal blinds also have longer cords that can bunch at the bottom of the doorway.
Typically, horizontal blinds run across the entire two panel doorway in one or two pieces, with the stack height dictating how high the blinds will need to be installed above the doorway. Today, though, advances in blind technology solve these issues. You can choose horizontal blinds that cover the entire doorway opening or just the glass portion. Designers today often find the look of two separate blinds more appealing and functional. One blind can be opened for entry and exit while the other remains closed.
