Any ideas for dressing a large patio window like this?

I like panel blind systems but this window doesn't have enough space to sides to stack away the panels. Any ideas for contemporary yet elegant finishes.

The Japanese bamboo shades work well in a case such is this. You can cut them to size, roll them up the height you like; they are lightweight, and modern.

But the key to their success is whether you can hammer a nail, or stick some super hooks onto the top part of your window to hang them. That way you can open the door without being impeded.

If you do shades, you need to do something cordless--you don't want those cords dangling and banging around on the glass, and wrapping them up on a cleat every time you open them. Have you considered ripplefold sheers? They have a much smaller stack back and a more contemporary look than traditional curtains.

JMittman Designs, you're so right, those cleats are a pain in the butt. I have three sets of bamboo blinds on my patio and they all have cleats. Is there a better way?....Bobbi

One thing I hate about top down/bottom up is the cords. I always buy cordless treatments if available. Country Curtains has cordless romans that are thermal in 63" and 72" lengths. Widest is 72" and come in 5 colors. Check them out.

Is ripplefold the same as wave?

Not familiar with the term wave, here are two pics of ripplefolds. One in sheer, the second in a cotton canvas used as a room divider.

Thanks for the pictures. This is like the wave and does look smart.

Cordless shades are definitely the way to go. I don't want to just toot my own horn, but for french doors I have not found any better. Reason is pretty simple: 3/4" in depth, so they pass the handle. As well as top down/bottom-up for openings up to 60" in width. No strings in the middle of the shade, and about 450 different fabric choices. They are also mounted on the top and bottom so when you operate the door, they do not smack against the panel.
