In the Midwest, we hibernate in the winter time and therfore our patio doors rarely get used. That is of course until spring comes along! The weather is getting warmer and we are filled our refrigerators with items to cook on our grills. Well, it is that time of year once again and you may think that patio doors are a pain to cover for somebody in my industry. As a matter a fact, they are a pleasure to cover...I LOVE patio doors!
While their are numerous ways that patio doors can be covered I am just going to share with you my favorite!
Most often, I place cordless honeycomb shades that stack high enough and then place a treatment over them to cover the stack of the shade when it is in the "up" position. This allows a person to be able to take advantage of the beauty of a soft-covering on their window to coordinate with their decor and still have functional kid-friendly privacy at the same time.
