I have a sliding glass door and I don’t know what my options are. What do you suggest?”
That is a common question that the team at Nest Expressions hears a lot. Many consumers today are looking for options other than traditional vertical blinds. Often traditional vertical blinds are still the best option, but there are other choices to consider also; including Skyline Gliding Panels, Luminette Privacy Sheers, Honeycomb Vertiglide and Shutters. Another option, and growing trend is to use a traditional horizontal shade on those doors such as a roman shade, roller shade or honeycomb shade.
Traditional Vertical Blinds:
Rethink Vertical Blinds with Somner Vertical Fabrics. Somner Verticals have the largest selection of vertical blind options. With 174 fabric choices containing a range of rich colors and gorgeous patterns and opacity levels varying from most light/least privacy to most privacy/least light. The vanes can be free-hanging or inserted into a groover. Or chose from the Vertical Solutions® collection for an economical assortment of verticals offered in 3 ½" styles, patterns and colors. Available in fabric and vinyl.
Skyline® Panels offer clean lines and a sleek contemporary tailored look for large or small window expanses. Featuring a patented two-channel track system allowing an infinite number of panels to attach to the slim 2 1/2" headrail. Choose from two panel widths to promote uniformity, 11 1/2" and 17". Skyline Panels feature a minimal stack back for maximized view-through and the innovative, interlocking bottom weight prevents panels from tangling and adds panel stability. Skyline Panels are available in: 94 of the 99 fabrics in the Designer Roller Shades collection and 71 of the 75 fabrics in the Designer Screen Shades collection.
Luminous Luminette® Privacy Sheers are clearly appealing. This great design is easy to live with. Beauty and function marry with the soft face fabric attached to vertical fabric vanes enhancing functionality. You will surely find the look your rooms deserve within the wide selection of fabrics, textures and colors with the inherent durability of 100% polyester. Open your home to spectacular views and landscapes with sizes up to 192" wide by 120" high in a single fabric panel.
We all desire inviting light but our homes today require UV Protection to protect floors, furniture and artwork from the sun’s harmful rays. Luminette Privacy Sheers accomplish this even when the vanes are open, all while the face fabric diffuses sunlight coming into the room, creating a daylighting effect and reducing the need for interior lighting.
Duette Honeycomb Vertiglide
Vertiglide™ with Manual operation or PowerView® Motorization combines to provide energy efficiency, privacy, powerful performance and sleek design. Advanced motorization technology for vertical window applications with a sophisticated battery-powered solution is the optimum convenience. The dual operation feature is a combination of manual and motorized operation, allowing the user to control the shade with the remote, app, or simply walk up to operate by hand. Energy efficiency is unparalleled with this option and a great choice for those Pittsburgh winters and summers. And you won’t have to compromise that view! With Duette Vertiglide your stack back is a minimal; 6” regardless of how wide the opening.
An option with each of our shutter products, the Bi-Fold or Bypass Track System is a beautiful and functional choice for large openings and sliding glass doors. The Bi-Fold systems allows up to six panels to be hinged together. Panels are connected to a top track which supports the panels and guides their folding movements. This configuration will open like your closet doors. The Bypass Track System allows shutter panels to slide past each other on top tracks to open and close. This system operates like your sliding glass door.
