Vertical, Sliding Panels
The practical alternative for those difficult places like the sliding door or wall to wall windows. Verticals, in fabric or vinyl, the choice is yours. They can even be manufactured in faux or real wood. For the contemporary setting, verticals are still a popular favorite. The hottest trend for doors this year are sliding panels. A luxurious, contemporary look, flat panels on a sliding track can be constructed using your own fabric selection or from the collections of the many manufacturers now offering them.
An architectural element for centuries, today’s shutters can be real or faux wood, painted or stained, standard rectangular or specialty shapes. Whether it’s cedar or synthetic, each shutter is individually designed for you, from the slat size to the quantity and placement of each panel, where the panels hinge and whether or not they are framed. We have numerous brands to choose from that will surely fit your style and budget. Be assured that your investment in these fine products will be expertly measured, installed and give you pleasure for years to come.
But what do I put on that door?
That dreaded problem!
Finally, we’ve put together a category
just for you!
French doors have many choices. Most blinds or shades can easily be mounted directly on a French door, giving you the ability to match the same treatment being used in the rest of the room. Draperies are also a possibility, as long as your hardware and fabric clear the openings. BUT it’s that sliding door we really need to think about!
Verticals have long been the reliable standard and still can be. But, how about a gorgeous Hunter Douglas Luminette to add elegance? Or try a vertiglide, the vertically oriented duette fabric also made by Hunter Douglas. New trends also include sliding panels, done with varieties of fabrics or natural wovenwoods. Even shutter panels can be used with ease on a slider. And, if you just need something to drop down at night or don’t use the door often, almost anything else would work out just fine!
