Basics on Sliding Door Window Treatments
Even though windows are good at keeping the house well light and aerated during the day and sometimes at night they cannot be left bare and open. That is why windows are covered in curtains, blinds, drapes, shades and shutters. But it is never at all easy to be creative with sliding doors as they do not provide enough room for creativity and exploration. Nevertheless there are a few good options for sliding door window treatments at your disposal.
Before you get into the business of actually choosing the right window treatment there are a few decisions you must make. The first depends on the purpose for which the treatments are sought. This will help the designer to help you make the right choice that will suit your needs and tastes. On top of this you should also consider the amount of light you would like filtering through such drapes and curtains.
Sliding doors are best decorated using drapes and curtains. Drapes and curtains always give a room a luxurious and comfortable air that is unmatched anywhere, even in Paris or Rome. These two treatments are almost a necessity in any home, as they never get outdated. One good thing about them is that they can be opened and closed depending on how much light you want in the room.
Draperies and curtains are made out of both heavy and light materials. The heavy materials are designed to block out as much sun as possible whilst still keeping the room well lit up. But these can be hard to wash owing to the heaviness of the material used. Apart from the heavy ones the light curtains are there to allow light to clothe your living room in gold and silver light beams.
Vertical and horizontal blinds have become more common lately. Before, they were simply used on small to medium sized windows. But with the coming of fashion trends they became more popular. What happens with these is that by simply tugging at an attached string the blinds will either open or close. It is even possible to open them half way.
I would not really suggest these blinds if you are the kind of person living in a busy household. Busy households always have a lot of traffic running through them. But if the slide is going to be kept shut the whole time then these can be a very mindful purchase indeed.
Horizontal blinds give you the added freedom to experiment with light regulation. The horizontal sliding panel track blinds are a popular favorite in a lot of homes and you would be a total idiot not to purchase them. Innovation has gotten so much the better of them that very recently solar screen material is being fused with old age designs to give a fine touch of modernity.
Generally window treatments for sliding doors must be chosen carefully. IF you do not make the right choice you will definitely be stuck with a living room with curtains you are not happy with.
