Slide Into Summer: Window Treatment Ideas for Sliding Glass Doors – HGTV
It’s finally summer, and if you’re anything like me, you’ve been racking your brain for warm-weather solutions. Sure, the heat is great for going to the lake or pool, but there comes a time when enough is enough: cue the A/C and iced lemonade. And for those of you with sliding glass doors, you may be looking for a way to cover them up and eliminate the excess heat that is so stealthily creeping in. Here are some of my favorite solutions:
Plantation Shutters: Southern charm, energy efficient in both the winter and summer months.
Sliding Panels: Easily adjustable to cover any or all of the sliding glass door, energy saving

Contrary to the other comments, I would use roman shades. Mounted high enough above the door so that they stack completely out of the way. You won’t lose any of your light and can freely use the door. You can make your own fabric shades if you don’t want to buy them or buy woven woods. There are several sites online with reasonable prices. If you decide on curtains, I would extend the rod enough so that the curtains stack to the outside so they don’t intrude on your light and easy passage through the door. Whatever you do, make them work with your other window treatments. – TulumChica

Window Treatments for Patio and Sliding Glass Doors – HunterDouglas
While virtually any Hunter Douglas window fashion can be ordered to cover a traditional patio or sliding glass door, certain products—Luminette® Privacy Sheers, Duette® and Applause® with Vertiglide™, and vertical blinds—are better suited to large expanses of glass simply because they traverse horizontally, making them easier to operate in these types of applications.
