If you love the open space concept, patios are undoubtedly an exciting feature to invest in. Glass patio doors with sliding door screens are a must-have for homeowners that love to entertain. The large glass panels in these types of doors allow more light into your home and can open up to make your space feel larger and more welcoming.
Unfortunately, glass patio doors and sliding door screens can pose a challenge when choosing window treatments. If you have particularly large patio doors, finding the right size screens or shades may be a problem. In this post, we'll introduce you to our favorite screen and shade products for big patio doors.
Screens are mesh partitions used to provide relief from heat, light, or insects. They can also provide a bit of privacy. They are typically made of different types of aluminum or fiberglass.
Bonus: Movable screens on patio doors make a great impression on guests and home buyers.
Shades are pieces of fabric that roll, stack or fold open to a view only when the shade is stored away. Like with window shades, door shades offer privacy and light control and they can be a decorative feature, too.
Yes. Shades and screens are sold for sliding and folding exterior doors. There are actually many options available from window treatment companies. This is the direction most homeowners take because most big patio doors don't come with shades or screens.
It is possible to add a sliding door screen in addition to a sliding patio door. Additionally, you can also opt for a more affordable option by getting a screen cover. There are screen attachments that work similarly to curtains and are sturdier options as well. The sturdier framed screen attachments are the most convenient and add value to your home.
