Panel track blinds are a sleek, modern, and unique take on traditional vertical blinds that cover doors and large windows. Inspired by Japanese shoji screens, panel track blinds provide a soft and finished look, similar to curtains, but with the added functionality of a full window shade. They consist of several larger panels of material that move horizontally along a track. The panels can be slid across the window or door for privacy or to darken the room, and when you need access to the door or window, you slide the panels over, and they stack on top of each other.
Multiple Draw Styles
Panel track blinds, or sliding panels, come in many different materials and fabrics, each with its own opacity, allowing you to customize how much privacy and light control your room gets.
Sliding panel blinds ensure that the large windows in your home have adequate coverage when needed, like when you need to reduce glare or keep the outside world out. But with the option to slide them out of the way, you can enjoy the views when it suits you.
Sheer sliding panels provide filtered light and allow you to see out when closed, whereas blackout panels will thoroughly darken a room. Adding liners to your sliding panels allows you to select whatever type of opacity you like to either filter light in, block more light out, or protect your privacy while at home.
Large windows and patio doors are attractive and desirable because they naturally let in light. However, this presents some challenges in light control, privacy, and UV protection. Nothing that you cannot address by choosing the right materials for your panel track blinds. Light-filtering, room darkening, or blackout sliding panels, while providing increased light control and privacy, can also help to protect furnishings from fading and sun damage, not to mention that increased light control and insulation can also help reduce energy costs.

Sliding and French doors are the obvious choices for sliding panel blinds because they can cover large areas and accommodate traffic moving in and out without being in the way. This means that durability is important. Panel track blind materials and their construction are made to withstand wear and tear from frequent use.
While they are a terrific window treatment solution for large-scale windows and doors due to their elegance and functionality, sliding panels are equally effective at solving a variety of design and space obstacles in the home.
Consider panel track blinds as:
Creatively divide up larger spaces with sliding panels. This can be done by installing a ceiling mount track to hang a panel track as needed or permanently. Panel tracks are also a clever alternative to a sliding door, like for a closet.
Panel track blinds also show versatility when used with more conventional applications like doors and wide windows. Particularly with sliding doors or a French door, you need a window treatment that can move but is not bulky. Panel track blinds slide horizontally so you can easily pass through the door without having to move the entire window treatment. Sliding panels are a modern, sleek, and versatile way to dress your wide windows and sliding glass doors.
Standard sliding panel blinds are distinctively stylish and functional, but there are ways to increase their convenience and elegance further. Consider these customization options:
Choose a split stack option, divide your panels in half, and slide them to either end of the window. This is an ideal sliding panel blind upgrade for wider windows. With this option, you can frame your view or reveal or cover one portion of the window at a time. You can also choose either side or pull the panels to both sides or close to the center.
DECORATIVE VALANCES & CUSTOM CORNICES
Attaching a top treatment such as a valance or cornice gives your window treatment a little extra distinction while providing an extra level of sleekness by covering hardware. Choose a matching valance or go for a bolder look with material or fabric that complements or adds additional texture to your sliding panel shades. Top treatments paired with your panel glide blinds create a look of seamless coordination between your window treatments and the room.
Depending on the material you choose for your sliding panel shades, upgrades include adding a liner, particularly if you choose a sheer or natural woven wood panel. Adding a liner will give you superior light control or more privacy. Adding a liner means you don’t have to sacrifice that perfect hue just because the material is a little sheer. Adding a liner will increase the overall opacity even to very pale fabrics.
DECORATIVE EDGE BINDING
Depending on the panel material you settle on, you may want to incorporate a decorative edge binding. This can help protect the edges of the panel while also adding some pizzazz, especially if you choose an edge binding in a contrasting shade.
All windows and doors are different, so panels come in standard sizes and extra wide widths, and you can customize the number of panels you would like to achieve your desired look.
Luxe materials like embroidered damask or natural woven wood can add a look of refinement to any window. The perfect upgrades for homeowners who prefer particularly lavish and sophisticated décor.
Compared to vertical blinds, sliding panels have a more streamlined look, adding a touch of elegance and luxury to your space.
Panel track blinds effortlessly pair with window treatments like Roman shades or solar shades. Allowing you to create a cohesive look for all the windows and doors in your home.
You can customize your sliding panels, choosing from simple, understated solids or dramatic, eye-catching patterns. With endless color options, you'll have no problem finding the right shade to match or complement your existing décor.
Depending on the material of your track panel blinds, you can integrate a great deal of texture into your space through your sliding panels. Woven wood sliding panels can provide you with simple or complex textures in an array of natural colors, resulting in just the right look and feel for your windows and doors while transforming any living space from dull to striking.
While it is true that panel track blinds are a great solution for larger-scale windows and sliding doors, that does not mean they are a universal solution. Things to consider:
To ensure you end up with exactly the look and feel you desire, you will need to carefully measure your window before ordering. Considering that there are many applications for sliding panel track blinds with endless customization in terms of the number of panels, styles, application and required mounting depth, and draw types (direction that your panels move and stack), it is best to leave the measurements to the professionals.

Yes, panel track blinds can be motorized for easy operation. Motorized blinds allow you to control your window treatments with the touch of a button or with a remote control. They are a convenient option for hard-to-reach windows or anyone with mobility issues. Motorized panel track blinds can also be integrated with smart home systems, allowing you to control them with your voice or through a smartphone app.
Panel track blinds can be made from a variety of materials, including woven wood, sheer fabrics, and blackout materials. The type of fabric you choose will depend on your desired level of privacy and light control. Sheer fabrics allow natural light to filter through while still providing some privacy, while blackout materials are ideal for bedrooms or media rooms where light control is important. Woven wood materials are a stylish and eco-friendly option for a natural and organic look.
Panel track blinds are typically installed using a bracket system that attaches to the ceiling or wall. The track is then secured to the brackets, and the panels are attached to the carriers on the track. A DIY homeowner can do installation with some basic tools and experience, but professional installation will ensure the blinds are installed properly and operate smoothly. At 3 Blind Mice we provide professional installation as well as in-home measurements during the design and shopping process so that your window treatments are guaranteed to fit perfectly.
