There’s no denying that a plain and simple patio door can be attractive on its own. However, adding fabric curtains can further boost its appeal and add a touch of softness to your interiors.
Apart from looking good, your curtain rods should be highly functional, too. For French doors, consider placing a curtain rod at the top and bottom of each door. Use a shirred curtain over the rods; this way, the curtains won’t get caught in the doorway whenever the door is opened or closed.
For sliding glass doors, you might want to consider installing the curtain rod over the doorway. Ensure the rod extends a few inches beyond the width of your door frame so the curtain won’t get in the way when the door is pulled open. You can opt for a traverse curtain rod if you frequently use your sliding doors.
Sheer and Opaque Fabrics
Sheer curtains are a good option if you want to let in a good amount of natural light. However, these won’t be able to give you enough privacy, which blackout curtains can easily provide. That said, your windows might benefit more from curtains that have an attached fabric liner.
Plain and neutral-colored curtains are always a safe choice. But if you want your interiors to have more character, don’t hesitate to play with lively color combinations, graphic patterns or animal prints. Of course, ensure your choice of print would still be in harmony with the rest of your interiors.
