Window Treatments for Patio/ Sliding Glass Doors

When selecting a window treatment consider a treatment with a horizontal movement, as those that raise and lower can be heavy and challenging to lift.

Window Treatments for French Doors

French doors are ones in which both sides open rather than just one.  Usually the window covering is mounted on the door but is considered an “outside mount” because it is mounted beyond the glass frame.  Most of the time extension brackets or spacer blocks are used for clearance.  Often cut outs need to be planned to account for the doorknob or handle.  Hold down brackets at the bottom of the treatment are often needed so that the treatment stays flush to the door and doesn’t fly out when the door is used.
