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.

"The salesman had previously sold us new windows and was very informative and not a bit pushy. The installation was excellent and as advertised absolutely nothing was left for me to clean up. Highly recommend Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis👍"
