Time to Open the Door!

By Karen E.

Winter’s over! It’s finally that time of year to open up the windows and let in the fresh air. One of the most popular sellers this time of the year are window coverings for sliding glass doors.  Most of the time in the winter, you are trying to cut down on the doors people are tracking the snow and mud into, so they don’t get used, and once spring rolls around, people start to realize how worn out the slats are, or that pieces of the track have been lost along the way.

Sitting Duck: Life Behind a Slider

By: Ashley

When looking at houses, many people love the fact that somewhere in their lower level house, they will have a sliding glass door. But no one understands that once you move in your going to need to cover the slider, to avoid becoming a sitting duck! Sliders will not only allow tons of light to stream in, but privacy levels will drop dramatically. The initial discussion becomes do I deal with it or waste tons of money covering up this huge slider? There are many products out there on the market that could potentially be put up as a window treatment, but the price tag could have you second guessing your judgement.

Slider Solution

By: KarenSOLIDTONES_1202A

When we finished our sunroom this past year, we closed it in with glass sliders rather than the tall screened windows that had previously been in the room. We decided to close it in so it could be used year round, rather than just in the summer time when it was warm out.  Instead of going with large windows that would be harder to operate, we decided the sliders were a good solution – and when left open they would let in the most amount of air and light.

Sunweave Panel track for the Sun Room

 

By: Dominic

I have a sun room off to the side of my house which is fully enclosed with a slider in the back. The slider is fairly large and takes up almost ten feet of the back wall. The slider has three panes, the two outside panes are stationary and the middle is the one that operates the door. I have no neighbors on that side of the house and I live on a dead end street but the sun comes in very strong and I was afraid that the sun rays would damage the floor and furniture that I put in that room. I had heard of sunweave shades from my brother. A sunweave shade is a screen like material that is used to cover the window. The function on the material is to block the UV rays from the sun but the material is also see through and allows the light to penetrate through and not lose your view. So I figured that they would be a good fit for me. I decided to look into covering up my slider with something like that.

Doors

By: Sai

Doors, doors, doors what to do with them? There are all types of doors with all different problems presented. My big concern right now is sliding doors. I have no idea what to do on them.  They are big and wide with an intrusive amount of glass that always needs to be covered. So the big dilemma is, how do I cover them?  To explain a sliding door  in plain English,  it is a door that slides and collapses into each other. They can either go from left to right or right to left. Sliding doors on average are about six feet and have two panel doors. Then there are over sized sliders which are usually anything above ninety six inches.  These doors tend to have three to four panels. On a three panel door either the middle one slides, and the two sides are stationary, or vice versa where the sides slide in and the middle is stationary. The same concept is used for a four panel sliding door.

Panel Tracks – not only for doors, then what for?

By: Erica

Growing up I lived in a small 3 bedroom house with my mom and 2 older sisters. Which meant there were four of us and 2 were shafted into sharing a room with one another. My mom clearly got her own room and my oldest sister Melissa was in high school, so there was no way she was rooming with her two little sisters. So you guessed it right, it was me and my sister Jen sharing a room. We at least for the most part had the largest bedroom in the house. Enough room for 2 twin size beds side by side with at least 5 feet in between with our own walk in closets. So for the most part I couldn’t complain. My sister and me were only a year apart so we got along, most of the time. But there were times I wish I could go to my room and feel I had my own space. If you’re wondering it never happened, until I moved out of course.

Verticals are they extinct?

By: Sai
If verticals are really extinct why are there so many choices? Why are there so many colors? Why are there so many patterns and options? Why can I get them with a backing? I just don’t understand this is a confusing matter. Why are people still buying them? I was watching tv and on  they were saying how verticals are an out dated look.  They say out there that it’s an old lady look with the floral patterns. When they are plain they portray more of an office look. To add to this supposedly they can be loud when the wind blows them left to right and they break easily at the top.

Panel Tracks – The Stylish New Way To Treat Your Slider?!

By: Karen

As I was roaming around the blind stores in the area, I was trying to come up with a treatment for the new slider we added in our basement – I love having it open, but because of the sun coming in on the TV in the afternoon it needs to be covered.  We had refinished the room completely, and it now serves as a family/entertaining room, and installed a slider that opens up to the backyard and pool.  Chances are it will become the new hangout for my teenage daughter and her friends, as well as a great place to entertain my friends.
