As the summer comes to an end, you’re likely thinking about ways that you can refresh your home with the changing of the seasons. Patio spaces are often and easily overlooked because of the unique demand of sliding glass doors and a high traffic area can be difficult to decorate with style. Patios require durable window treatments that can stand up to the elements and frequent use, as well as window treatments that retain a unique sense of style that will elevate your interior decor. At The Blind Guy, we carry a range of Hunter Douglas window treatments that solve the patio dilemma, including soft vertical shades and the popular Luminette® privacy sheers. Each of these styles feature special horizontal mounts so that you can enjoy your patio windows in style without losing any functionality. Let’s look a little deeper at a few of these fabulous options.


Cadence® soft vertical blinds provide the UV protection and privacy a patio window treatment demands with the style of flowing drapes. Cadence® features a unique, vertical fabric vane that blocks incoming light yet remains adjustable on a 180-degree axis. These vertical blinds come in a huge selection of colors, textures, and patterns —great for a range of looks, from simple to bright designs that make a statement. Cadence® includes a patented headrail that not only ensures your horizontally mounted blinds operate smoothly, but also reduce light gaps for unwanted leaking that might cast an annoying glare in your home. The curved fabric vanes are a wonderful option for sound absorption, which works exceptionally well in busy homes or spaces like patios.

Vertical Solutions®

The Vertical Solutions® system of vertical blinds is perfect for the classic, minimalistic appeal. Featuring both fabric and vinyl options, you’ll find the perfect solution for you. Vinyl vertical blinds work great in high-traffic areas because of the easy to clean material. Vinyl blinds are also resistant to denting and creasing, so you’ll always enjoy crisp, polished windows. Choose from an array of fabric vane solutions for increased sound-absorption and drapery-like style.


Luminette® combines the beauty of sheers and vertical blinds in this stunning window fashion. This vertical window treatment flows gracefully for a stunning décor focal point even when you go with a simple white or cream color. Choose from several colors, textures, and patterns for an even more customized look in your home that makes your space feel like it was designed personally for you. Luminette® is a beautiful option for patio spaces because of its high-end feel and unbeatable functionality. Luminette® features award winning PowerView® automation that allows you to control your windows completely hands free. With the PowerView® app, you can program your shades to open and close to a schedule you set throughout the day, and enjoy custom Scenes that remember the positioning of your windows for that perfect lighting every time. Control your windows with your voice thanks to Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple compatibility, or choose the low-profile Pebble® remote for the same great control.
