drapery hardware solution

doglover's picture

I want to hang draperies on either side of a large patio that already has vertical blinds installed on it . Can anyone suggest a hardware solution? I have to leave the verticals installed as the place is located in Florida & I need the verticals for protection from the sun.

Thanks for your suggestion. It may work, but I was thinking that later on I may want to put a cornice board right across the door to cover up the vertical track although there is a valance on the verticals right now. I don't want  to  have to much "going on" at the top of the window

Would a ceiling-mounted drapery rod in front of the verticals/vertical track work?
