Effective Ways to Decorate Your Patio Doors With Curtains

Patio doors provide a seamless connection between the interior and exterior areas of your home. Just like windows, they bring in natural light and ensure ventilation. Though they can stand on their own, these fixtures can be the focal points of your home, especially if you add and improve on their appeal. Here are the effective ways to decorate your patio doors with curtains.

Choosing Between Fabrics

Hanging curtains on your patio doors is one of the simplest ways you can add much-needed decor to the fixture. However, when it comes to choosing between light and heavy fabrics, it would make sense to pick the latter.

Lighter fabrics let more sunlight in, but they don’t provide the right amount of insulation necessary to keep the home comfortable. Plus, they are not a good selection if you put a premium on privacy. Heavier fabrics, meanwhile, keep your interior unseen from prying eyes and retain more heat coming from the fixture. They also help give French and sliding patio doors a nice texture once installed.

Finding the Right Heavy Fabric

Heavy fabrics come in a variety of styles, including suede, velvet and tapestry. Each of these offers unique textures to block out light and heat to ensure comfortable indoors. Another good choice is linen; it has a natural texture that is easy to clean and maintain.

As far as color is concerned, you have the free rein to choose any fabric color you want to cover your patio doors. That said, choose between lighter, neutral and dark yet muted color tones. Any of these will make the heavy fabric less overpowering to see.

Reviews

"We had a large picture window and two side windows replaced. Everyone from the person who took our order to the installers were top notch. We got exactly what we wanted. Granted, we had to wait a few months, just like you do for everything these days, but we were told that up front. The windows were well worth the wait. We've replaced windows before by going to home maintenance stores. Don't waste your money on those. Our Renewal by Andersen windows look great, they operate like a dream, and are worth every penny. Quality through and through."

"My new windows look great!! I can feel the difference in my house and my furnace is no longer staying on constantly. My installation crew was polite, tidy and speedy. It couldn't have went better"

"From start to finish everyone we dealt with were total professionals.. The project process was well communicated, the installers did an excellent job and the windows - I’m so excited about our new windows! They look great. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I am looking forward to cleaning them. And it was obvious immediately that the insulation is vastly better than the old windows. Also, I am just a customer who gets nothing for this endorsement. I just appreciate good service and an excellent product. This company knows how to do it right."
