Here is a list of some window treatments for sliding glass doors that will make any neighbor jealous of your New Hanover home if you want some ideas to get you started. 

Sheer Curtains to Preserve Light

Simple, whimsical sheer curtains can filter light and preserve the natural light in a room. This will provide some privacy in a room with little daylight, while allowing the room to have natural lighting at the same time. Sheer curtains add a subtle but powerful touch to a room while keeping it minimal. To create a unique look, you can layer them with other window treatments.

Light-Blocking Curtains

It is recommended that you consider light-blocking curtains if the area in question gets an excessive amount of sunlight in your New Hanover home. During the warmer months in Federal Point, NC, the curtains will help control the amount of sunlight and keep the room cool. Also, if you intend to install sliding glass doors in a living room with a television and want to prevent glare, you should have them.

Stylish Curtains

The amount of natural light in your home is not a factor in the choice of curtains, so you can simply choose them based on style. A room’s design can be complemented with colors and patterns.

Be prepared for them to become the main attraction if the room is simply decorated or if the curtains or drapes have a bold pattern. Solid curtains are also stylish – choose a muted, natural color for a subtler atmosphere or go bright for a more vibrant effect.


Just like regular windows, sliding glass doors can also be customized with valances. Due to their placement above the door, they will not obstruct people’s passage. Therefore, they do not require any special installation. If you want a more modern look, you can use a floral-patterned valance instead, which will give your New Hanover home a classic, old-fashioned appearance.


There’s no need to worry about traditional plantation shutters not matching your home decor! They can be applied to sliding glass doors as well! If you want to control natural light entering your home, you can install sliding panels that also have rotating shutters. In addition to blocking out light, regular blinds will also give you a similar appearance at a lower cost.

Roller Shades

You can enjoy the beauty of your landscape from the sliding glass doors in your home. It might be best in this situation not to choose window treatments that are too flashy and distract from the view. It may be a good idea to consider roller shades; they are simple and roll neatly up at the top of the door, so you barely notice them.

In Federal Point, NC, you can still block out the light when watching a movie during the summer or when cooling down your home when it’s hot.

Other General Trips

Regardless of what sliding glass door treatments you choose, there are some tips and tricks you need to know. One of the most important things is to ensure that your window treatments do not interfere with the door’s functionality. For easy access to the door, make sure the curtains can slide to the side.

Ensure that valences are not installed too low so that people’s heads won’t be brushed as they walk through the door. To prevent dirt and stepping on them, hang curtains about an inch above the floor.

Pleasure Island is a coastal barrier island in Southeastern North Carolina, USA just south of the City of Wilmington. Pleasure Island is located within Federal Point Township, in New Hanover County. The coastal resort towns of Carolina Beach and Kure Beach, as well as the annexed communities of Wilmington Beach and Hanby Beach are located on the island. The southern end of Pleasure Island was separated from Bald Head Island by Corncake Inlet until the inlet was shoaled and closed in 1998 by Hurricane Bonnie; thus Pleasure Island and Bald Head Island are no longer separate islands.

The area that is now Pleasure Island has gone through a variety of changes over the last few hundred years to end up with its current shape, extending from the Carolina Beach Inlet to Cape Fear.

The “island” started out as the lower tip of the Federal Point Peninsula which was originally bounded in the south at a break in the barrier islands called New Inlet. This inlet was “new” in that it opened up as a result of a massive storm in September, 1761. For the decades that followed, New Inlet was actually the preferred entrance to the Cape Fear River for ships bound for the port of Wilmington, as it offered a deeper, shorter, and less treacherous route compared to the Bald Head/Old Inlet Channel, at the mouth of the Cape Fear. During the Civil War, blockade runners routinely took the New Inlet route, which led to the building of Confederate Fort Fisher at this location. There are still dozens of sunken blockade runners in this region of North Carolina.

After the Civil War, reduced water flow in the river (caused by water escaping through the New Inlet) threatened the main shipping channel that led up from the mouth of the Cape Fear River to Wilmington. To protect access to the port, the United States Army Corps of Engineers built a 1-mile long stone dam, eventually known as “The Rocks”, between Zekes Island and the southern tip of Federal Point. The work took place between 1870 and 1881, and eventually closed off New Inlet’s direct access to the Cape Fear River. The enclosed area behind the dam is now known as “The Basin”. A second dam, known then as “The Swash Defense”, extended “The Rocks” from Zeke’s Island south for another 2 miles. These were massive rock moving and engineering efforts, costing over $1M in 1880’s money. After the building of the two rock dams, only smaller boats and skiffs could travel from the ocean into the meandering creeks behind Smith Island to access the Cape Fear River. However, for all intents and purposes, the inlet was closed.
