Solutions for French Doors & Patio Doors

French doors and patio doors are a beautiful addition to your home. They let the natural in, allow for heavy traffic and provide a beautiful view of your outside space.  Comprised of mostly glass, framed like your windows, they can provide frustration if you don’t have some type of window coverings. Window coverings for your doors, specifically french doors and patio doors need to provide solutions to fit your lifestyle.
