Ventilation in Moderation!
Though glass windows and sliding doors provide great natural ventilation, it can be a bit too much at times. If you live in an especially sunny location or wish to dim down the ambient natural light at some point in the day, then curtains are simply the easiest and the best option. Once again, the simplicity of usage and the ease with which you can control natural light using drapes makes them a great choice for sliding glass doors.

The amount of natural light that you get within your home also depends largely on the alignment of the structure and the position of the sun throughout the day. Curtains allow you to control this aspect as you can keep constant light conditions despite changing luminosity by using them in a smart and sensible manner.

Elegant, Ergonomic and Energy-Efficient
Curtains not only bring along advantages such as privacy and light regulation along with them, but they also genuinely help in elevating the look of your home. While the corner next to the sliding glass doors might otherwise go unnoticed, by adding an L-shaped curtain to the area, the entire appeal of the space can be uplifted with ease. Innovations like illuminated curtain pelmets also add a inimitable dimension to the room. Drapes that come in the same hue as your décor or fabric that is similar to your couch cushions exude a sophisticated and refined atmosphere.
