Large sliding doors always present problems for our clients. For one, they are alot square feet which ineveitably translate into multiple dollars. Here in Florida where light and an open air lifestyle is optimal there can be as many as 6 or 8 in a home – and this just piles on the cost for window treatments.
There are several factors to consider, apart from price, before making a decision. What is your tolerance for stack into the window? Do you want the treatment to go up and down or traverse side to side? What is your decor – contemporary, transitional or traditional? What do you want the treatment to do for you in terms of function – light control, privacy, etc. That’s alot to take into consideration before making a decision on the right window treatment for you.
So that being said, here are some ideas – minimal stack, middle price range is the Hunter Douglas Vertiglide. It is available in both their premium Duette line and the price point Applause line. The stack is only 6 1/2 inches! This is one of its main selling points, but in some of the fabrics available it is also very energy efficient.
