Buying Guide

Whether your sliding panel system keeps light out depends entirely on the material you select for it. Many sliding panel systems are made of wood or synthetic materials. They feature intricate cut-outs or designs that allow light to seep through and shade the space without completely darkening it.

If your sliding panels are acting as blinds, the color and design of the material will determine if it can keep light out. It’s possible to order blackout panels that are specifically designed to prevent light from seeping through. Without this feature, light-colored synthetic panels allow some light to pass through and enter the space.

Sliding panels on the interior of your home that divide a room will typically let light pass through them but still offer privacy because the glass or clear synthetic material in the panels is frosted.

You can make a sliding panel system look stylish by using the right lighting, selecting a sliding panel system out of a high-quality fabric, and choosing strategic low-key decor pieces to match your sliding panel system. For example, it’s a good idea to avoid using harsh overhead lighting around a sliding panel system, because you’ll probably be able to see it through the panels from the other side. Instead, opt for gentler side-table lamps. When you’re selecting the color of your sliding panels, choose a rich neutral instead of a bold color. Then make sure that color is repeated throughout your space in a tasteful way; this will make it look like your sliding panel system belongs precisely where it is.
