Sliding doors undoubtedly require curtains of full length. When you have curtains that extend from ceiling right up to the floor on such doors the room looks taller. Depending on how wide your door is, you can have curtains in two or three parts. When the curtain rod is extended beyond the door, you get a neat look when the curtains are gathered at their ends. With the curtains gathered you are sure that most of them stay put and don’t block your sliding doors.
It’s recommended to have double curtains for spacious sliding doors. Having a combination of opaque and sheers makes an ideal choice and is often the most favored. You may consider having plain or printed sheers in soft or white colors. For getting amazing looks nothing beats printed sheers in solo color. You may even use just one semitransparent curtain to add an element of style if you are prepared to sacrifice a bit of privacy. You could use opaque curtains made from raw silk, silk, cotton silk satin, or cotton fabric. Look for a simple natural fabric or a striking printed curtain fabric. You’ll find many verities of printed materials in varying qualities of fabrics used for curtains. Depending on your choice and personal preference you may opt for soft or lively colors and shades. Large prints are ideally suited for curtains on sliding glass doors covering a larger area. You may choose to have pleated or regular curtains. If you are among those who prefer having blinds but also love the fabric coverings, you may opt for fabric Roman blinds that look exclusive and stylish.
As already pointed out double curtains are a great favorite of homeowners when considering dressing up of glass doors. In their case, there needs to be a perfect matching of the two curtains. One selection is that of white sheers with plain opaque curtains. The color of the curtains should go well with interiors of the room. The other option is to go for sheers in colors with dark-colored opaque curtains. Here again, color coordination of sheers and curtains is very important to get the right effect. You may like the idea of using printed drapes with matching plain sheers having the same shade. A novel idea will be to go for printed or plain drapes incorporated with plain fabric Roman blinds. This will surely look classic. Sliding glass doors with Roman blinds in textured fabric look awfully attractive.
Having decided the material and style of curtains, you can add zing to their looks. In case the room is located between two rooms, you can consider two sided fabric. You may have valance on the curtains. An excellent valance idea involves having designer valances in eye-catching colors with shiny fabric to emphasize the whole door that has charming plain curtains. Decorative tie backs when used for keeping the curtains in place add to the décor when curtains are kept gathered. You get many options for tie-backs. Some of the possibilities include using strip of lace or stain fabric or even the fabric of the curtain itself to keep them in place.
