Basically, most curtains will work for a sliding door. However, you should consider having them tie off at the side during the day. At night you can let them hang straight down. You could also go with vertical blinds. This one works well on these types of doors too. Otherwise, use a drawstring curtain that you can pull the string to open and close them during the day and evening hours.

How do you decorate sliding glass doors with curtains?
Cheryl from Walstonburg, NC
We are living in Japan in base housing and have a huge back sliding door, there are 4 panels. What I did was take those scotch white hooks, the ones with the sticky backs on them, and put those on both top corners of each glass. I bought one of those cheap round curtain rods and just laid it on the hooks with the curtain. You can't even tell how they are hung up there. People ask me all the time, "How did you get curtains up on there like that?" I just tell them with a curtain rod. No one has ever figured it out.
