sliding patio door shade question...

Is it possible to use roman shades or balloon shades to cover sliding patio doors? I really do not want to use regular verticle blinds, but we are in need of privicy. (this is for my dining room) Thanks!

it's possible - but it's not the best-looking or best-functioning way to go. a better choice would be full length draperies that could be opened & closed.

but if it's what you want, just mount them high enough so that when they're raised up, you can slide your door open and have enough head room to walk under them without needing to duck.

I would agree w/ Annette. Here is another thought, Hunter Douglas makes a product called Duette Vertiglide. It is a cellular shade but will slide across the width and stack tight. It's a wonderful product. Let me know if you would like more info on this product. With this no ducking required
