3 Stylish Solutions for Sliding Glass Doors

While vertical blinds are one of the most common window treatments for sliding glass doors, Horizons offers high-end options that add eye-catching style to these unique spaces. Explore three stylish patio door shades.


Averté Natural Fold

Horizons Averté Natural Fold have the gentle folds of drapery with the easy operation of a guide rail. The fabrics are handwoven and made from sustainable materials like bamboo and grasses for a soothing, natural texture. Because each fabric is woven by hand from natural materials, each Averté is a one-of-a-kind piece for your home.

Averté Natural Fold smoothly operate on rail and are available with motorized and cordless control. Decorative knobs make split-draw Averté easy to open. Plus, Horizons Decorative Pole Averté is now available on any 2" wood pole or 1½" Treasures collection for a beautifully finished look.

Our fine weaves and premium materials create elevated, sophisticated treatments for your sliding glass door with a connection to the outdoors.



Custom drapery for sliding glass doors is another high-end solution. The softness and variety of fabrics can turn your patio door into a focal point, drawing your eye out to nature. Add a blackout liner for the most privacy—and extra insulation over a large expanse of glass.

Drapery can be operated with a wand or motorized for easy, cord-free control.


Elancé Sliding Panels

For a window treatment that’s more like a vertical shade than a drapery, consider sliding panels. Horizons Elancé Sliding Panels are made with solar and roller shade fabrics.

Available from sheer to private to room darkening materials, solar shade fabrics provide UV protection and allow you to keep your view outside during the day—making a lovely patio door shade for enjoying the view of your property while still protecting your furnishings from fading.
