Window Treatments At New Place? I Need Advice!

Ok my Home Life friends, I am moving to a condo in 3 weeks that has 4 yes 4 sliding glass doors. 2 are on my second floor, one heading out of my dining area and one in the living room leading onto my 2nd floor balcony. 

One is on first floor in dd's room and one on ds's room leading to their patios. Thankfully my thrid floor master bed room does not have one lol. 

Ok I have never had so many sliding glass doors in one place in my life. They are there in place of regular windows. SO they will come with the white standard long hanging slat blinds.

  • Should I leave them alone and not put any kind of window treatments? They do have blinds up already.
  • Should I get some fancy or plain large long rods and still have window treatments if so what type? Should I do valances or long curtains? Would that look strange?
  • Do you have any other tips or ideas I have not mentioned?

Here are my most fav curtains I purchased this year. I LOVE Them and hate to not be able to use them. Would they look right on the ends of sliding glass doors? I have a set of four of these pannels. I was hoping maybe to use them in living room & dinning room?!


I would show you pictures but we can't get into our place until NOV 18th. So I am pre-planning.

yes I would definitely have window treatments in the two bedrooms. even if its just the blinds that are in there when you move in. And use the curtains in your lr and Dr. I think they would look nice.

In the bedrooms at least get curtains. This way if you want to sleep in the curtains will provide more coverage so light can't get in as much.

I would do curtains to help add personality to the rooms and to help darken the bedrooms in the mornings

Kinda of the dinning area & living room area are open & together so both doors are one same wall just spread apart. I forgot how many feet apart the sliding glass doors are.

I was thinking same thing but I think where my hangup was I had never seen someone do curtains around a sliding glass door before. And your right I do want personality in the rooms a dull blind would be so boring. The help darken the bedrooms is a great idea too!
