After many months the conversion of my bonus room to a home theater is nearing completion. One of the items I have given little thought to was how to cover/conceal the sliding glass door entrance into the room.

The theater installer wanted to use a motorized curtain/blind system, but at $2500, I could not justify the cost/benefit ration. Any other thoughts/ideas?

My wife will be making blackout curtains and we'll just use a regular manual draw-type curtain rod. You can probably source the electric parts yourself for less than half of that estimate.

I agree with Mr Logan. Though I'm not gonna really worry about motorizing it, since I figure it'll rarely be opened.

Well I figured out what I am going to do. Going to use extra fabric and sew pattern over blinds to simulate the same pattern as on the walls when closed. Fortunately my GF is pretty skilled at sewing. The outside of blinds will be very dark or black, and as mentioned will sew one of three colors onto inside of blind.

Sliding panel, with the interior matching the theater fabric finish?

Vertical blinds which when closed will match size and color pattern of existing acoustic panels throughout room.
