If you’re not the do-it-yourself kind of person, then you may want to consider hiring a handy man or other professional to install your patio door window treatments.
Visiting a store that sells window treatments can allow you opportunity to ask questions. You can even have a salesperson give you tips and actually take you step-by-step through the process.

A little patience can go a long way when measuring and installing your glass sliding door window treatments. Some people find installing window treatments to be a dreadful and frustrating task that they would rather avoid. Allowing your frustration to get the best of you will only make things worse.
The adage you get what you pay for applies. Obviously, everyone has their own personal budget, so buy what you can afford, but try to avoid buying the lowest price blinds because, chances are, they probably won’t last very long.
