In the house we're buying there is a sliding glass door that is 144 inches across (12feet!) and 80 inches tall. It needs to have cover on it so that the sun doesn't beat in and for privacy, but what can be put on a window that big that isn't going to cost an arm and a leg and that also doesn't look bad? If I got a custom vertical blind for a window that big the price would be outrageous. There are 3 other smaller sliding glass doors to be covered and 13 other different sized windows.
