What’s the Best Window Treatment for a Patio Door?

A patio: let's make outside more like inside.


If you enjoy the outdoors and entertaining, a patio or deck is a must. It is the perfect way to blend the majesty of the outdoors with the comfort of the indoors. And while it may still be winter, it is never too early to start dreaming about warmer weather. So we decided to answer one of the most frequently asked questions we receive here at Next Day Blinds… What is the best window treatment for a patio door?

You see, patio doors present an interesting challenge. They are doors, but they are also windows. So you need a window treatment that not only blocks light, but is also incredibly durable, because, if you are like most homeowners, you use and abuse your patio. Just envision how often you and your guests go in and out of that patio door. In and out. In and out. From spring to fall. You need window treatments that can stand the test of time.
