How to Decorate Your Patio Door With Curtains

Your patio door can have an effect on both your home’s interior and exterior spaces, so it’s a great area to focus on when you want to breath new life into your property. Fortunately, it’s easy enough to bump up your patio door’s appearance with minimal effort just by using a curtain.


Here are some of the ways you can decorate your patio door with curtains:

  • If you have French patio doors, attach a curtain rod at the top and bottom of each door, and slide in a shirred curtain. If you have sliding glass doors, place a curtain rod over the doorway extended a few inches from the width of your door frame. This will prevent the curtains from being caught in the doorway when you open or close your patio doors. 

  • If you want to let in a lot of natural light, go for sheer curtains. This works well with windows, too!

  • If you want more privacy, choose opaque fabrics, and go for options with attached fabric liners. 

  • To achieve a more upscale feel in a traditional property, you can choose cascading curtains in silky white, taupe or black fabric. 

  • To complement a modern home, you can get curtains with edgy designs, bold colors and quirky prints.
